Motorola has launched the wi4 WiMAX CPEi 775 an all in one access device that combines a WiMAX 802.16e modem with an integrated Wi Fi 802.11 b g router VoIP ATA ports for voice calling and an Ethernet port.
The second generation CPEi 775 follows the award winning CPEi 850, and by incorporating adaptive switching techniques, the CPEi 775 does not need to be rotated for optimal signal strength, allowing easier installation.
"As mobile WiMAX networks proliferate globally service providers are looking for ways to leverage the speed and performance of WiMAX for more advanced services," said Charles Riggle, senior director of strategy and business development, WiMAX devices, Motorola Home & Networks Mobility. "It takes considerable know-how to put two different radio technologies together in a single package with internal antennas and not suffer from interference or degraded throughput. With the CPEi 775, we are able to provide high performance in a very attractive form factor."
The Motorola wi4 WiMAX CPEi 775 is WiMAX Forum Wave 2 ready and is available today in the 3.5 GHz band with support for the 5MHz, 7MHz, and 10 MHz bandwidths.
