By incorporating Sequans' technology, the FlexMAX System will empower service providers with the first Mobile WiMAX system to package low power consumption and a compact footprint, with the processing power to handle advanced wireless technology and high revenue applications.

"By working with Sequans Communications, the developer of the 'all in one solution' chip, we further our commitment to deliver complete, best-in-class Mobile WiMAX systems," said Yatish Pathak, CEO and Founder of SOMA Networks. "We will continue to capitalize on leading standards, revenue-generating applications and a strong ecosystem of partners, such as Sequans, to deliver industry leading FlexMAX solutions that allow our customers to accelerate time to market and share our vision of connecting the next billion people."

"We are very pleased to count SOMA Networks as a customer," said Dr. Georges Karam, President and Chief Executive Officer of Sequans Communications.
