The Mongolian WiMAX network, Ulusnet has been expanded by Airspan Networks. The Ulusnet network consists of a combination of Airspan micro and macro cell equipment operating in the 2.5 GHz frequency.
The majority of the network is located in the city of Ulaanbaatar, the capital and largest city in Mongolia and home to about 38% of the nation's population. The new expansion will continue to serve the city as well as target some of the more rural countryside.
Ulusnet launched its WiMAX network in 2007.
"Airspan has served us well for several years," commented Ulusnet CEO Byambatseren Davaakhuu. "We have a strong partnership that supports our rapidly growing network. Mongolia is one of the fastest growing economies in Asia and with a growing economy comes a higher demand for high-speed connectivity. Ulusnet is well positioned to continue to serve Mongolian resident and commercial customers with 4G data and voice services."
