The WiMAX Forum®
June 18, 2007

Portland, OR -- The WiMAX Forum®, an industry-led non-profit organization comprising more than 460 companies committed to promoting and certifying interoperable WiMAX® products, today announced establishment of the WiMAX Forum Japan Office in conjunction with appointment of Japan Director and Vice Directors by the WiMAX Forum.
Japan plays a key role in mobile communication technologies and services and is also expected to lead next-generation mobile broadband services. The Ministry of Internal Affairs and Communications (MIC) has completed the regulatory work for the 2.5 GHz broadband wireless access and also announced the draft license policy on May 15.

Given this regulatory situation and the high demands from the Japanese member companies of the WiMAX Forum, the WiMAX Forum decided to establish the Japan Office and also appointed its director and vice directors for managing all of the WiMAX Forum activities in Japan, particularly for addressing regulatory and marketing challenges.

“I will act as local representative for the WiMAX Forum to help make mobile broadband a reality in Japan by working with equipment vendors and operators to develop interoperable telecommunication services," said Dr. Tadao Saito, WiMAX Forum Japan Director.

The WiMAX Forum Japan Office is the fourth office of the WiMAX Forum after its offices in US, China and India. The Japan Director and Vice Directors appointed by the WiMAX Forum are as follows:
  • Japan Director – Dr. Tadao Saito, Professor Emeritus at the University of Tokyo
  • Vice Director of Technology – Dr. Kenji Kohiyama, Professor at Keio University
  • Vice Director of Operations – Dr. Takashi Shono, Executive Researcher of Intel K.K.
