Nokia Completes WiMAX (802.16e) Data Call

Nokia announced a technical milestone in its WiMAX development program -- the first completion of a data call in an 802.16e network. The error free call was made between computing and baseband modules at Nokia's research and development facility in Germany and was conducted on a high-speed pre-product test platform.

The WiMAX e-version will combine nomadic and portable mobility capabilities.

Nokia said it will be expanding to WiMAX trials during 2006.
