Pipex Wireless Selects Nokia Siemens Networks for WiMAX

Pipex Wireless, a new venture formed in April 2006 by Pipex Communications and Intel Capital to develop and roll-out a WiMAX network into the UK market, has selected Nokia Siemens Networks as a key partner.

Pipex Wireless will use Nokia Siemens Networks' equipment, services and networking expertise to widen its roll-out of WiMAX powered broadband wireless services nationwide. Pipex Wireless and Nokia Siemens Networks are now working on equipment specification, network design and service definition in readiness for a pilot deployment during this year.

Pipex Wireless owns a national spectrum license in the 3.6 to 4.2 GHz frequency range allowing it to deploy new and innovative broadband wireless services.
