WiMAX Forum Certifies Mobile Products

PORTLAND, Ore. -- The WiMAX Forum today revealed the first Mobile WiMAX products to receive the WiMAX Forum Certified Seal of Approval for the MIMO 2.3 GHz profile. The completion of the 2.3 GHz certification testing profile allows WiMAX Forum designated labs to accept tri-band (2.3, 2.5 and 3.5 GHz) products and immediately begin the certification process.

Following months of rigorous testing to ensure that each WiMAX product met the strict WiMAX Forum interoperability and conformance standards, the announcement included two base stations operating in the 2.3 GHz band from Huawei and Samsung.

“I would like to congratulate Huawei and Samsung for leading the way for WiMAX Certified 2.3 GHz products,” said Ron Resnick, president and chairman of the WiMAX Forum. “This spectrum band is increasingly important with India’s BWA auction currently underway. WiMAX services in India and other counties with poor broadband penetration will create new opportunities and generate economic vitality and jobs for millions of people while closing the digital divide gap in rural areas.”
