Fujitsu and Taiwan's III Collaborate on WiMAX

Fujitsu and Taiwan's Institute for Information Industry (III), a non-governmental organization jointly sponsored by the Taiwan government and prominent private enterprises, agreed to establish a new company in Taiwan that will develop application platforms and provide engineering support based on WiMAX technology from Fujitsu and III.

The new joint venture, scheduled to be established in March 2008, will leverage Fujitsu's WiMAX SoC solutions and III's software technologies. It will develop WiMAX application platforms and provide them to ODM vendors in Taiwan. Since numerous global brand equipment vendors are using Taiwanese ODM vendors as manufacturing partners, it is expected that application platforms and localized engineering support provided by the new company will spur the rapid growth of the global WiMAX industry.

The new joint venture's initial target applications will include mobile WiMAX handsets, and femto/pico base stations.
