ADC Adds Aricent Access Service Node Software to Its WiMAX Ecosystem

Aricent will provide its WiMAX Access Service Node (ASN) software as part of the ADC WiMAX ecosystem. With the addition of Aricent's ASN, ADC can offer turnkey WiMAX systems based on its pico and micro-class WiMAX base stations and distributed antenna systems.

ADC said the addition of Aricent's software-based ASN as an option for WiMAX systems based on ADC's FlexWave MMX base stations enables enterprises, universities, and wireless Internet service providers (WISPs) to deploy WiMAX systems while saving up to 40 percent over the cost of a traditional hardware-based ASN.
