Alcatel-Lucent wins Croatian WiMAX contract
|25 марта 2008|
Alcatel-Lucent has been selected by WiMAX Telecom to supply the first WiMAX 802.16e-2005 (Rev-e) network in Croatia. The deployment will start in the area of Split and Osijek followed by other regions, and will operate in WiMAX Telecom's 3.5GHz spectrum.
Under the terms of the agreement, Alcatel-Lucent will supply its end-to-end WiMAX solution including almost 400 base stations, wireless access controllers, operation and maintenance center (OMC) as well as customer premise equipment (CPE).
With the ability to support the simultaneous delivery of multiple video and audio streaming channels the network will become fully operational in 2008.
"It is exciting to see that our cooperation with WiMAX Telecom - having started with the initial deployment of a WiMAX network in 2005 - now leads to this next big project in Croatia. We are looking forward to entering new markets with this true pioneer in wireless broadband access," said Frederic Rose, President of Alcatel-Lucent's Europe, Asia and Africa activities. "Alcatel-Lucent is committed to boosting WiMAX deployments in South-East Europe, leveraging our regional support capabilities and local presence - particularly in terms of our ability to support mobile operators. In Croatia, for instance, Alcatel-Lucent is present with a dedicated affiliate handling and supporting major contracts in the country. Our innovative WiMAX solution will benefit WiMAX Telecom and its customers in Croatia, who will have access to leading-edge, high-speed, wireless broadband solutions."
Founded in 2004, WiMAX Telecom is a cross-border broadband wireless access (BWA) operator in Europe and holds 3.5 GHz frequency licenses in Austria, Croatia, Germany, Slovakia and Switzerland. WiMAX Telecom intends to build-out and operate wireless broadband networks in its licensed countries but will offer its wireless broadband services to end-users exclusively through partnerships with wireless service providers.
