Alvarion Selected for M-Taiwan WiMAX Application Lab

Alvarion will supply its Mobile WiMAX technology to the first WiMAX Forum M-Taiwan WiMAX Application Lab (MTWAL), managed by ITRI at the campus in Hsinchu, Taiwan. The new lab, also referred to as a Proof-of-Concept (PoC) lab, has just been opened by ITRI for the purpose of testing and developing innovative Mobile WiMAX applications. Expansion of network coverage throughout the Hsinchu Science Park, National Chiao Tung University, and National Tsing Hua University, is planned as part of the project's next phase.

Alvarion said its 802.16e end-to-end 4Motion solution will provide various applications over Mobile WiMAX, and promote multi-vendor interoperability performance of WiMAX equipment at the 2.5 GHz frequency band.
