Gemtek has developed a new and cost-effective Mobile WiMAX CPE, based on Sequansâ€™ WiMAX chip, that will deploy on Bharat Sanchar Nigam Limitedâ€™s (BSNL) WiMAX network in India. Once fully deployed, BSNLâ€™s WiMAX network will be the largest in the world, comprising 7000 base stations and covering several states across India.
Gemtekâ€™s new device, the WIXS-181 outdoor CPE, delivers high speed internet access, operates at 2.5 GHz and gives users best-in-class coverage and throughput in a sleek form factor. The new Gemtek CPE will be on display at WiMAX Taipei 2010, June 1-5, at the Taipei World Trade Center, Taiwan in Gemtekâ€™s booth, A523, and Sequansâ€™ booth, A418A.
Sequansâ€™ new generation Mobile WiMAX semiconductor solutions are the most highly integrated and most powerful WiMAX chips in the industry. They deliver baseband and triple band RF in a single, 65 nm die, delivering ultra low power consumption and ultra high performance at a very low cost. The chips also deliver two transmit channels and adaptive closed loop diversity (2T-CLD) on the uplink, technology pioneered by Sequans that can nearly double cell coverage.
â€œGemtekâ€™s new CPE is a powerful solution that will eventually serve millions in India with Mobile WiMAX service,â€ said Georges Karam, Sequans CEO. â€œOur technology contributes to the high performance of the device and the efficiency of the entire BSNL network, and we are pleased to collaborate with Gemtek on this important project.â€
Sequans Communications is a 4G chipmaker, supplying WiMAX and LTE chips to equipment manufacturers and mobile operators worldwide.
