Airspan Unveils ''Self-Installable'' WiMax Products

Airspan Networks Inc. has unveiled what the company said are the world's first self-installable indoor WiMax products that link desktop PCs, laptops, Internet-ready telephone sets and other broadband devices directly to operator networks.

MANHASSET, N.Y. — Airspan Networks Inc. has unveiled what the company said are the world's first self-installable indoor WiMax products that link desktop PCs, laptops, Internet-ready telephone sets and other broadband devices directly to operator networks.

The AS.MAX family of WiMax base stations and end-user devices from Airspan (Boca Raton, Fla.) include support for residential and nomadic internet access, corporate data networks, and Voice-over-IP.

The AS.MAX family comprises two customer premises equipment (CPE) devices: the EasyST and ProST. The EasyST, which uses Intel's "Rosedale" wireless broadband system-on-chip, connects IP-enabled devices directly to WiMax networks and can be installed indoors by end users.

The ProST CPE will serve larger enterprises and is designed for outdoor professional deployment. Both CPEs are designed to work on any WiMax-certified base station.

The AS.MAX family also includes point-to-multipoint base stations called HiperMAX, MacroMAX and MicroMAX, as well as an integrated point-to-point backhaul solution, PrimeMAX. The Software Defined Radio (SDR) in the base stations allows high-capacity AS.MAX base stations to be upgraded from the fixed to the mobile WiMax standard, thereby enabling connections to laptops, PDAs and other portable devices supported by the emerging IEEE 802.16e mobile WiMax standard. Airspan will commence trials of AS.MAX products with service providers the second quarter of 2005, and expects commercial WiMax network rollouts to begin in the third quarter.
