WiMAX spreads through Europe, care of Airspan, Alvarion
Last Mile Broadband of Ireland began buying Airspan's WipLL and 802.16a-based AS4030 products in 2004. The latest purchase is for 35 of Airspan's AS.MAX base stations and more than 1,000 ProST CPE devices, which Last Mile Broadband will use to launch new higher speed data and VoIP services.
Separately, competitive Polish telecommunications provider Netia selected Alvarion's BreezeMAX 3600 for a 20-city WiMAX deployment in Poland. An extension of Alvarion's market-leading BreezeMAX solution operating from 3.6 to 3.8 GHz, the BreezeMAX 3600 is targeted at WiMAX operators in Europe and other countries where that frequency is available, and enables carriers to offer broadband data, voice, and multimedia services.
