WiMAX devices show signs of maturity

The WiMAX devices ecosystem received a boost on Wednesday with both Fujitsu and Motorola lifting the curtain on their latest end user devices.

At the WIMAX Global Congress in Amsterdam, Fujitsu was demonstrating WiMAX terminals based on its triple-band chipset supporting 2.3GHz, 2.5GHz and 3.5GHz bands in a single small form factor.

The chipset caters to low cost WiMAX netbooks, wifi – WiMAX desktop and mobile routers, and WiMAX desktop phones.

Meanwhile, Motorola expanded its portfolio with the addition of the CPEi 800 and the CPEi 885 plug-and-play CPEs.

The CPEi 800 data-only modem, offered in all bands, is a basic, low-cost wireless modem for fast market entry into low teledensity markets and will be available in August.

The CPEi 885, initially offered in the 3.5GHz band, is a multiple port data, VoIP and wifi (b/g/n and 2x2n) device that incorporates a 2.4GHz wifi 2x2n router.
