TAIPEI and MONTREAL -- Delta Networks, manufacturer of networking equipment, and Wavesat, developer of WiMAX silicon, software and reference designs, announced today a partnership to develop low cost and small form factor 802.16-2004 compliant CPE. A hardware/software total solution will be ready for OEMs/ODMs before the end of February 2006 and the product will be part of WiMAX Forum’s second certification wave in 2006.

The new WiMAX CPE design, available from Delta Networks, will integrate Wavesat’s recently launched WiMAX 3.5 GHz Mini-PCI design as well as its proprietary MAC software. Wavesat will assist DNI in integrating the CPE MAC onto Delta Network’s modular CPE platform derived from their WiFi product line.

Sam Liang, Chairman and CEO of Delta Networks, explained: "We partnered with Wavesat for their EvolutiveTM WiMAX portfolio as well as their unique technical expertise with the IEEE 802.16 standard. The EvolutiveTM WiMAX Series is the most complete and flexible portfolio available worldwide for a wide range of WiMAX applications. It delivers the performance expected by OEMs/ODMs while providing the flexibility for quick customization and a cost-effective way to jumpstart their introduction to WiMAX and quickly respond to market demands."

Wavesat’s President and CEO, Michel Guay, added: “I am extremely excited by this relationship. Delta Networks has an undisputable reputation for manufacturing the highest quality networking products. Thanks to their engineering insight and production capabilities, they are able to generate high volumes at competitive costs. Our growing relationship with ODMs will yield long term benefits to the WiMAX industry as they have the means to drive down the cost of CPE and enable broad WiMAX market adoption."
