[Airspan, Fujitsu and Starent are providing the first public demonstration of a multi-band, interoperable WiMAX network at WiMAX World underway in Chicago this week.]
Chicago, WiMAX World -- Airspan Networks, Fujitsu Network Communications, a subsidiary of Fujitsu Limited, and Starent Networks, Corp. today announced that they will be demonstrating a multi-band, interoperable WiMAX network at WiMAX World 2008, held in Chicago this week.
The demonstration will utilize Airspan's HiperMAX base station operating at 3.65 GHz, the Fujitsu BroadOne(TM) WX300 macrocell base station operating at 2.5 GHz, and Starent's Multimedia Core Platform Access Service Network (ASN) Gateway. Airspan's MiMAX™ Q-Series USB devices will provide access to the wireless network at each respective company's booths.
This demonstration showcases the three companies' commitment to interoperability by creating a seamless network consisting of base stations from two vendors -- Airspan and Fujitsu -- operating on different frequency bands interconnected by the ASN gateway from a third company -- Starent -- using open-standard interfaces developed by the WiMAX Forum.
The first public demonstration of its kind, this solution highlights the interoperability built into the core of WiMAX specifications and underscores Airspan, Fujitsu and Starent Networks' commitment to open network interfaces, which they believe to be crucial to the success of WiMAX.
Details about the interoperability demo will be available in the Airspan Networks booth (#917), the Fujitsu Network Communications booth (#811), and the Starent Networks booth (#611) at WiMAX World 2008.
