Motorola with maxis Communications has announced a successful call from the first mobile WiMAX site from Malaysia's City Centre - Kuala Lumpur City Centre (KLCC). KLCC is amongst four maxis live trial sites using Motorola's WiMAX solution on 2.5GHz spectrum. This also marks Motorola's first mobile WiMAX live trial in Southeast Asia.
The live trial, consisting of four sites in downtown Kuala Lumpur, when completed in the second quarter of 2007, will provide full wireless connectivity and access to residential broadband users. All trial sites are being monitored by an EMS (Element Management System) Portal. This will enable maxis to assess WiMAX traffic channeling capabilities and further evaluate the full mobility and performance of Motorola's suite of mobile WiMAX solutions in the 2.3GHz, 2.5GHz and 3.5GHz frequency bands.

We see mobile WiMAX as an essential and complementary service to our ongoing HSDPA deployment due to its progressive capacity management capabilities for high broadband traffic. We are excited to work with Motorola on this trial as they are one of the first providers to offer the most advanced commercial 802.16e standard mobile WiMAX equipment on the market." said Dr Nikolai Dobberstein, senior general manager for Products & New Businesses, maxis Communications Berhad." more
