NextWave’s plans

13 июня 2007
NextWave Broadband, the chip subsidiary of NextWave Wireless, announced plans for a family of WiMAX baseband and multi-band RFIC chipset platforms. The chipsets, designed by the company's Advanced Technology Group, incorporate several differentiating elements, says NextWave. Namely, the chipsets are designed to reduce power consumption, enable a variety of advanced multimedia applications such as video and allow seamless operation and roaming across worldwide WiMAX frequencies and profiles. In addition, the chipsets incorporate key features to accelerate the convergence of mobile wireless devices with consumer electronics products across WAN and LAN environments.

The ability to switch between different frequencies is particularly important to NextWave Wireless' strategy in general. It is in a unique position of owning a rather substantial swathe of spectrum in the 2.3 GHz, 2.5 GHz and Advanced Wireless System bands (1710-1755 MHz and 2110-2155 MHz), while amassing pieces to make it a provider of broadband products and technology. In addition to developing WiMAX chipsets, NextWave has gotten into the deployment of WiFi networks through the $13.3-million acquisition of Go Networks. The company is also involved in mobile video to cell phones through the acquisition of PacketVideo.

Samples of the company's first generation WiMAX baseband system-on-a-chip (SOC) and matched multi-band RFIC will be available this quarter. Initial availability of the company's second generation chips, designed for high-volume commercial production, is planned for the first half of 2008.
