introduces a new Broadband Wireless solution that supports the frequency bands from 1.4 - 1.5 GHz. The solution includes base station equipment and a suite of subscriber devices including models with support for Voice over IP and WiFi.
A complete end-to-end solution, Airspan's new product offering includes the MicroMAX Base Station and EasyST, ProST, and ProST-WiFi subscriber units, all compliant with the IEEE802.16d standard. The solution also works with other band-independent Airspan products, including VoIP and WiFi extensions for EasyST and ProST, as well as VoiceMAX -- the company's unique solution for enabling VoIP QoS over a WiMAX network.
Legacy TDM radio relay systems in 1.5-GHz were often deployed for voice by operators with universal service obligations. Now, many countries are pursuing universal service obligations for broadband. With this solution, Airspan provides a broadband product in the same frequency and, with VoiceMAX, provides lifeline quality voice service that the users of these legacy systems have come to rely on.
