Maxis Embarks on Mobile WiMAX trial with Motorola

06 марта 2007
Motorola and Maxis Communications Berhad announced a successful call from the first mobile WiMAX site in Malaysia’s City Centre - Kuala Lumpur City Centre. KLCC is among four Maxis live trial sites using Motorola’s WiMAX solution on 2.5GHz spectrum. This also marks Motorola’s first mobile WiMAX live trial in Southeast Asia.

The live trial, consisting of four sites in downtown Kuala Lumpur, when completed in the second quarter of 2007, will provide full wireless connectivity and access to residential broadband users. All trial sites are being monitored by an EMS ( Element Management System ) Portal. This will enable Maxis to assess WiMAX traffic channeling capabilities and further evaluate the full mobility and performance of Motorola’s suite of mobile WiMAX solutions in the 2.3GHz, 2.5GHz and 3.5GHz frequency bands.

“Mobile WiMAX plays a critical role in our wireless broadband strategy. We see mobile WiMAX as an essential and complementary service to our ongoing HSDPA deployment due to its progressive capacity management capabilities for high broadband traffic. We are excited to work with Motorola on this trial as they are one of the first providers to offer the most advanced commercial 802.16e standard mobile WiMAX equipment on the market.” said Dr Nikolai Dobberstein, senior general manager for Products & New Businesses, Maxis Communications Berhad.

“We are extremely delighted to be collaborating with Maxis, Malaysia’s leading mobile telecommunications provider, in this live trial. The mobile WiMAX will certainly give Maxis an edge in extending more innovative, prompt and value-added services to its subscribers,” said K.M Yee, senior director of sales, Networks & Enterprise, Motorola Electronics Sdn Bhd.

In Asia Pacific, Motorola has WiMAX deployments already underway. These include Wateen Telecom-Pakistan, part of Warid Telecom International, to roll out a nationwide WiMAX 802.16e network in Pakistan and Agni Systems Ltd, an Internet service provider ( ISP ) in Bangladesh. Agni has started a phased WiMAX deployment to provide wireless broadband access in Dhaka, the capital of Bangladesh.

“These ongoing deployments and trials across the region, including this trial with Maxis, demonstrate the potential of WiMAX to be a viable and crucial wireless technology in helping the local telecommunication community to roll out broadband services,” Yee said. “As a global leader in wireless communications, Motorola is well positioned to provide forward looking Malaysian telecommunication operators the assistance in making broadband connections available to more than 75 percent of households in Malaysia by 2010.”

Globally, Motorola has been driving the development of WiMAX through strong industry alliances and collaborative agreements with industry-leading companies. In the United States, Motorola was selected by Sprint Nextel as a vendor for its nationwide WiMAX network; while Clearwire selected Motorola’s WiMAX technology for its nationwide broadband network.
