Intel finds partner to build WiMAX carrier-grade infrastructure
Posted on 21-May-2005 12:14 | Tags Filed under: News



Huawei Technologies and Intel will cooperate in building carrier-grade wireless broadband networks supporting the new WiMAX / IEEE 802.16 standards and specifications.

According to the press information released the two companies will work to develop a broad range of new high-speed broadband wireless technologies and lead subsequent developments in the broadband wireless industries.

"Cooperation between Intel and top-tier, global leading telecommunications equipment companies like Huawei will drive the development of the WiMAX ecosystem and rollout of the next generation of wireless broadband networks. We look forward to working with Huawei to help make the potential of WiMAX a reality in China, and around the world," said Michael W. Chen, Director, Communications Marketing & Sales for Intel Asia-Pacific.

Huawei researches and develops carrier-grade wireless broadband networks. Huawei has also deployed end-to-end WCDMA, CDMA 2000 and GSM solutions in more than 70 countries throughout the world. In the first quarter of 2005, the company successfully developed an HSDPA communications network processor.

On the other hand, Intel has been leading the advancement of the IEEE 802.16 "WiMAX" standard for wireless broadband and has developed chipsets and processors to support WiMAX networks. Intel also announced the launch of its first commercial WiMAX chipset, Intel PRO/Wireless 5116 during the same event.

Huawei plans to integrate Intel's 802.16-2004 chipsets into carrier-grade broadband network solutions, and roll out the commercial network in the fourth quarter of 2005.
