PureWave accelerates WiMAX with Enea

PureWave Networks, a US-based WiMAX equipment manufacturer, has announced the purchase of Accelerator 2.0 software from Enea for its next-generation base stations. The deal was finalised during the fourth quarter of 2008.

Headquartered in Sweden, Enea is a supplier of carrier grade platform software and professional engineering services to the global telecom industry.

“Middleware development is one of the most complex, costly, and time-consuming aspects of deploying reliable, high-availability networked systems. Enea’s solution provides an off-the-shelf communications and network management solution that enables us to focus our development efforts on what makes PureWave’s WiMAX solutions unique, such as advanced beamforming and true spectrum re-use technology. Using Enea allows us to accelerate the launch of our next generation carrier grade base station which is scheduled for later this year,” says Dan Picker, CTO, PureWave.

“We’re pleased that PureWave has chosen to work strategically with Enea to accelerate deployment of their advanced WiMAX base station”, adds Asa Landen Ericsson, president and CEO, Enea. “Customers have increasingly unique requirements for solving industry problems and company-specific criteria make a one-size-fits-all software solution impractical. Enea is the one company that can provide custom solutions, standardised solutions, or any combination in between.”

PureWave’s goal is to transform the economics of WiMAX and LTE, through a combination of advanced technology, an innovative product offering and the most cost-effective products. PureWave is developing small form-factor WiMAX base stations, which combine the power, performance and sophisticated features of a traditional macro base station, with the small footprint and competitive pricing of pico base stations. The products will leverage advanced beamforming technology that optimizes spectral efficiency, data throughput and range. The small form-factor WiMAX base stations are designed for all outdoor installation, are tower, pole or wall mountable, and require no indoor shelter.
