DigitalBridge Deploys Mobile WiMAX Network

DigitalBridge Communications, a telecommunications service provider, has launched a commercial Mobile WiMAX service in Jackson Hole, Wyoming using WiMAX Forum Certified 802.16e equipment. Selling under the BridgeMAXX brand, the new mobility service plan offers 3 Mbps download for under $40 per month. Current BridgeMAXX fixed-service users can add the mobility feature for a bundled price of less than $30 per month.

The DBC BridgeMAXX network is powered by Alvarion's 802.16e BreezeMAX 2.5 GHz base station, which incorporates SentieM technologies in the end-to-end Mobile WiMAX 4Motion solution.

Alvarion noted that it was one of the first few base station vendors to receive the recent WiMAX Forum certification for meeting the global standard for wireless broadband mobility. The company said this makes Jackson the first community in the US to be able to experience Mobile WiMAX.
