Sprint joins the WiMax Forum
Posted on 1-Feb-2005 08:32 | Tags Filed under: News



Sprint has joined the WiMAX Forum as a Principal Member. The WiMax Forum is an industry-led, nonprofit corporation formed to promote and certify compatibility and interoperability of broadband wireless products based on the IEEE 802.16 standard.

The company says that ubiquitous wireless broadband access will help meet demand for rapid Internet connection and integrated data, voice and video services among businesses and consumers.

"We support the forum's infrastructure goals," explained Oliver Valente, vice president - Technology Development, Sprint. "Standardization and certification will unlock significant opportunities for service providers and equipment makers while bringing new high-speed connectivity benefits for users. We are anxious to conduct technical trials as test equipment becomes available, as WiMAX is complementary to Sprint's high-speed communications portfolio, and we are looking at WiMAX solutions for a number of future applications."
