Motorola secures major WiMAX contract in Ireland

Motorola has been selected by Imagine to design and deploy an end-to-end WiMAX network to replace Imagine's existing wireless infrastructure nationwide across Ireland. Motorola will provide deployment, integration and support services to Imagine in addition to WiMAX equipment. This will include WiMAX Access Points, such as the WAP 450 for increased coverage and capacity in a compact design and the WAP 800 with beamforming antenna techniques for enhanced performance. For customer premises equipment Imagine will offer the USBw 100 dongle for high speed mobile connectivity; the CPEi 775 which includes a built-in Wi-Fi router and ports for VoIP; and the CPEo 450 which extends the coverage of critical broadband and VoIP services, while reducing infrastructure and support costs. A portion of purchase price will be financed by Motorola.
