ADC today announced that it will introduce its FlexWave™ Mobile WiMAX (MMX) product family at the WiMAX World 2008 show, which is being held in Chicago’s McCormick Place, September 30 – October 2, 2008. ADC will be displaying the new solution in Booth 933 at the show. ADC’s Mobile WiMAX (FlexWave MMX) solutions allow wireless operators to place a base station wherever coverage is needed—in any terrain or within any infrastructure—bringing carriers significantly reduced infrastructure deployment, operational, and facility costs over traditional WiMAX equipment.
FlexWave MMX solutions are hardened, “place anywhere” 802.16e WiMAX base stations that deliver up to 40mbps per sector. The FlexWave MMX products are available as a single-sector base station, or multi-sector base station in a single chassis, and as a Pico base station. This mobile WiMAX solution includes a full line of subscriber stations, ranging from outdoor units, indoor units with voice, data, and WiFi capabilities to PC cards and USB dongles for laptop users. ADC also offers multiple backhaul options for FlexWave MMX, including Ethernet, IP microwave, millimeter wave, and fiber backhaul connectivity.
“With its high throughput, WiMAX has the potential to deliver true mobile broadband service built in a well-known, IP-based infrastructure,” said Todd Schieffert, program director for ADC. “The FlexWave MMX platform offers significant cost-to-deploy and time-to-deploy benefits. Since the MMX is an all outdoor-hardened base station, it eliminates the need for secondary enclosures with their associated months to build, and incremental costs. The flexibility of the FlexWave solution also allows networks to be constructed quickly which translates into faster-time-to revenue for the wireless operators.”
FlexWave MMX solutions feature the WiChorus Intelligent ASN Gateway as part of the offering. The WiChorus ASN Gateway, located at the core of the WiMAX network, aggregates high capacity base stations while ensuring line rate QoS, accounting and security for millions of subscriber service flows. Service providers can leverage the WiChorus solution to capitalize on unique service opportunities, effectively monitor and control traffic in the network, manage subscriber connections and reduce overall operating costs.
Other wireless products featured at the show include:
* The FlexWave™ MMW – High Capacity Gigabit Millimeter Wave Radio Link - This licensed wireless point-to-point Gigabit Ethernet transmission system provides 1.25Gbps full duplex transport capacity with fiber equivalent performance, reliability, and security but without the high deployment costs associated with outdoor fiber installations.
* InterReach® Fusion In-building Solutions - Best in class 802.16e WiMAX distributed antenna system that is ideal for wireless operators who plan on deploying high performance WiMAX MIMO or SISO configuration options in public venues (hotels, retail shops, subway stations) and enterprises.
In addition, ADC’s newly announced LoopStar® EtherNID™ demarcation unit will be showcased at the event. This in-line service assurance solution offers a complete range of performance monitoring, Ethernet OAM, and Ethernet service creation functionalities that enable carrier-grade Ethernet mobile backhaul over existing networks.
