Huawei Gains WiMAX Wave 2 Certifications

Huawei Technologies has obtained three Wave 2 certifications from the WiMAX Forum for its newest WiMAX base station, the WiMAX DBS3900, and two of its terminal products, the BM325 and BM625, which are all based on the WiMAX 802.16e standard. The Wave2 certification testing was conducted in AT4 wireless laboratory, the WiMAX Forum Lead Laboratory.

Huawei's latest generation WiMAX DBS3900 base station supports multi-mode functionality, such as WiMAX and GSM. It has passed the testing in both 5M and 10M channel bandwidth according to the latest Wave2 testing version, CRS2.5.0. In addition, it also fully supports Interoperability-Multi Input Multi Output (IO-MIMO) which can increase coverage, data-rates and reliability by simultaneously sending and receiving data by multiple antennas.

The BM325 is a WiMAX USB data card, and the BM625, a WiMAX Customer Premise Equipment (CPE).
