The contract was originally announced last November and the launch was expected to have occurred by the end of last year.
"This is about empowering our customers to experience a nationwide 4G broadband network that is designed to offer higher speeds, lower cost and greater convenience", said Charles Hage Managing Director and co-founder of Mada Communications.
Motorola supplied WiMAX access points (WAP 400 and WAP 800) as well as indoor and outdoor customer premises equipment and portable plug-in devices such as the indoor CPEi 750, WiFi-enabled CPEi775, outdoor CPEo 400, and a USB plug-in device - the USBw 100.
Motorola also integrated its WiMAX Access Service Network (ASN) Gateway to provide a critical piece of the end-to-end WiMAX network architecture. The gateway connects the WiMAX radio access network to a common IP core, offering a reduced cost and quicker time to market.
A survey of Jordan's Internet users by the Arab Advisors Group last December revealed that the newly launched WiMAX operators had already secured an 8.3% share of residential broadband Internet accounts in the country.
Commenting on this finding, Jawad J. Abbassi Arab Advisors Founder and General Manager, said: "Clearly, WiMAX services - a year after their launch in Jordan - have gained good traction. The sales and marketing efforts of the two WiMAX operators, as well as the enhanced market awareness for broadband Internet in general, are factors in this growth."
