Motorola has announced that its WiMAX WAP 25400 base station has achieved the WiMAX Forum Certified seal of approval by passing required interoperability and conformance tests as outlined by the WiMAX Forum. This milestone achievement places Motorola among the first companies to have its 2.5GHz WiMAX products earn this new stamp of approval for completing tests necessary to insure operational and feature compliance for 2.5 GHz certification.
Through its certification program, the WiMAX Forum provides operators with the assurance the products that have passed rigorous testing will have the ability to interoperate with other vendors’ WiMAX access points and devices that have passed the same certification process. This is an important step by the WiMAX Forum toward enhancing the ecosystem and advancing the widespread adoption of the WiMAX 802.16e standard around the world.
“Motorola was one of the early advocates for WiMAX 802.16e because we knew the technology has the bandwidth to cost effectively deliver the multimedia experiences people want, when, where and how they want it, at a fraction of the cost of 3G technologies,” said Fred Wright, senior vice president, cellular networks and WiMAX, Motorola Home & Networks Mobility. “Today, we have a leadership position in the number of contracts for commercial systems worldwide and in being among the first to have an access point for 2.5 GHz designated as WiMAX Forum Certified.”
