Tokyo, Japan & London, England -- NEC Corporation announced today they
performed successful testing at the third Mobile WiMAX Plugfest held
last week in Sophia Antipolis, France. NEC was one of 32 WiMAX equipment
and test equipment manufacturers to perform interoperability of Mobile
WiMAX equipment. The actual testing was conducted between May 13 and 19.
|NEC has joined with its
mobile WiMAX flexible basestation platform and mobile WiMAX card. Both
these platforms allow users to connect seamlessly across wide area
wireless networks delivering full mobility
and a high quality of service.
The work NEC has undertaken at the Plugfest builds on the experience of
recent wins in Taiwan and commitment to the technology’s development.
The signing of agreements with the service provider Tatung and the
Taiwanese government announced recently cement NEC’s leadership in the
field of mobile networking. The establishment of the WiMAX R&D centre in
Taiwan will allow interoperability testing to continue apace and to
drive the global adoption of Mobile WiMAX as the next generation
wireless networking technology.
NEC Europe Ltd., a NEC Corp’s wholly owned subsidiary, will represent at
5th Annual Mobile Broadband Congress at Olympia, London on May 23 - 24.
Stephen Lightley will present on “The Transition from Fixed to Mobile
WiMAX Today” on May 23, 15:00-15:20. NEC’s booth will be located at
