Taiwan based telecommunications Device maker Gemtek has announced that it has a new and cost-effective Mobile WiMAX CPE to be deployed by India’s state-owned telecom Bharat Sanchar Nigam Limited’s (BSNL (News - Alert)) on its WiMAX network in India. Gemtek’s Mobile WiMAX CPE is based on Sequans’ WiMAX chip. BSNL’s WiMAX network is slated to be the most extensive in the world, comprising 7000 base stations and covering several states across India.
Gemtek’s (News - Alert) WIXS-181 outdoor CP delivers high speed internet access and operates at 2.5 GHz and gives users best-in-class coverage and throughput in a sleek form factor. It will be exhibited at WiMAX Taipei 2010, June 1-5, at the Taipei World Trade Center, Taiwan in Gemtek’s booth, A523, and Sequans’ booth, A418A.
Sequans’ new generation Mobile WiMAX semiconductor solutions deliver baseband and triple band RF in a single, 65 nm die ensuring low power consumption and high performance. The chips also deliver two transmit channels and adaptive closed loop diversity (2T-CLD) on the uplink, technology pioneered by Sequans that can nearly double cell coverage.
“Gemtek’s new CPE is a powerful solution that will eventually serve millions in India with Mobile WiMAX service,” said Georges Karam (News - Alert), Sequans CEO. “Our technology contributes to the high performance of the device and the efficiency of the entire BSNL network, and we are pleased to collaborate with Gemtek on this important project.”
