Nortel Networks announced WiMAX portfolio enhancements powered by MIMO technology on Thursday afternoon, geared to support bandwidth-intensive services such as VoIP, videoconferencing and interactive gaming.
Nortel is developing a complete portfolio of MIMO-powered WiMAX systems to serve numerous global markets and customer scenarios. Nortel’s WiMAX products are designed to allow wireless and wireline carriers, cable providers, media companies and other ISPs to deliver broadband connectivity to consumer and enterprise users by leveraging existing networks and ‘last mile’ wireless links. The portfolio also provides greenfield service providers with newly acquired spectrum to deliver the high-bandwidth promise of WiMAX.
Nortel will deliver mobile MIMO-enabled WiMAX/WiBro products in the 1.5, 2.3, 2.5 and 3.5 GHz spectrum bands, designed with a flexible architecture that allows for quick re-banding for emerging markets.
