Pace Unveils WiMAX Bridging 802.16e and 802.11n

Pace Micro Technology demonstrated a home networking solution that combines 802.16 WAN delivery with 802.11n distribution in the home.
The demonstration consists of a server unit in the home, which connects wirelessly to an external WiMAX base station using Pace's "Connections Suite software" -- which has been entirely developed at Pace. This server unit then delivers broadband content -- either video or data or both -- to clients around the home, including set-top boxes, mobile phones and PCs, using WiFi.

Pace is teaming up with Metalink and Runcom Technologies, the pioneer in OFDMA enabling technologies for Mobile WiMAX to enable this demonstration.
