Harris Stratex Networks Targets End-to-End WiMAX, Partners with Telsima

Harris Stratex Networks introduced its end-to-end network solution for WiMAX networks, including a set of services and integrated network management solutions designed to give service providers a single source for all their WiMAX network requirements. The company also announced a new partnership with Telsima to provide a full portfolio of WiMAX 802.16e products.

Harris Stratex Networks is targeting mobile operators in developing countries in Africa, Asia and Latin America that need to augment their mobile cellular services with fixed, nomadic and mobile broadband services, and have the opportunity to use WiMAX today while other standards remain in development. A key demographic is Tier 2 and 3 service providers that are starting to plan and build out networks targeting residential and business users with data, voice over IP and video-on-demand services.

The cornerstone is the new 7000 Series WiMAX platform, which supports IEEE 802.16e-2005 WiMAX standards for both mobile and fixed subscriber applications respectively. The 7000 Series supports flexible base station architectures and a large range of subscriber units, and also supports 450/700MHz for cost effective deployments in sparsely populated rural areas. The solution also includes Harris Stratex's Eclipse platform for wireless IP backhaul and best-in-class core network services elements (ASN and CSN), all encompassed under an integrated umbrella network management system provided by the company's NetBoss Service Assurance platform. Service providers will also benefit from the range of turnkey services provided by Harris Stratex, which includes everything from business planning, network design and optimization, IP transmission network design, installation and maintenance through to a complete managed network service.

Also, under a new partnership, Telsima will provide Harris Stratex with base station, CPE, and management/provisioning systems featuring Wave II-certified multi-sector base stations, high power base station radios and CPE products including outdoor, indoor and PC client adapters. http://www.HarrisStratex.com
