MobiTV to Test Service over Mobile WiMAX in No. California

MobiTV has joined the WiMAX Forum and will be leading its Proof-of- Concept trial with the mobile WiMAX network that will span a number of Northern California cities.

The Northern California based Proof of Concept network will provide an environment to evaluate a variety of mobile WiMAX applications, including mobile television broadcast, video-on-demand, navigation and general network access. A second Proof of Concept network will be deployed in Taipei, Taiwan under the direction of the National Taiwan University.

At this week's TIA Wireless IT & Entertainment show in Los Angeles, MobiTV is demonstrating live High-Definition television delivered over a pre-mobile WiMAX network. The real-time demonstration will showcase the MobiTV service running over Navini's Ripwave MX equipment to both fixed and mobile customer premises equipment.
