Comstar to Use Nortel for Mobile WiMAX in Moscow

Russia's Comstar has selected Nortel equipment to develop its mobile WiMAX network in Moscow. A total of 160 base stations are expected to be built in Moscow by the end of 2008. The overall investments in the project are expected to amount to approximately US$ 20 million in 2008.

Comstar said construction of the IEEE 802.16e standard network (2.5-2.7 GHz range) has already started and is expected to be completed by the end of 2008, with Kvazar-Micro (now renamed as SITRONICS Information Technologies) acting as the equipment supplier and Intellect-Telecom as the project designer.http://www.nortel.comhttp://www.comstar-uts.com
