Motorola Adds WiMAX Clients  

Motorola today unveiled two new 802.16e Wave 2-ready WiMAX devices. The desktop CPEi 750(right) and PCCw 200 PC card are on display at Mobile World Congress in Barcelona Feb. 11-14, 2008.
Motorola’s new PCCw 200 PC card can support both 2.5GHz and 3.5GHz on one card, giving users access to nomadic and mobile connectivity with global roaming capabilities.

The PCCw 200 is expected to be available for commercial deployment in the second quarter of this year.

Motorola’s desktop CPEi 750 (right), is a second generation WiMAX 802.16e-compliant wireless broadband modem. It features one data and two VoIP/ATA ports and is available in both 2.5GHz and 3.5GHz. With its “plug-and-play” functionality, it acts as a compact communications center for advanced home communication. The CPEi 750 is slated for availability by mid-2008. Motorola’s Wave 2-ready WiMAX devices also includes the CPEi 850, a black box solution that includes both voice connections and Wi-Fi.

Motorola claims true “plug-and-play” capability, where users can be online in just a few minutes from the time they’ve unpacked the CPE from the box. The WiMAX network automatically detects the Motorola subscriber device upon power up and performs the necessary authentication processes.

These new Wave 2-ready devices are successors to Motorola’s currently available portfolio that includes the data-only CPEi 100 launched at CES 2008, the outdoor CPEo 400, and the PCCw 100 PC card. The portfolio also includes a data and VoIP product - the CPEi 300 Series Desktop - which was named Best of WiMAX World Europe 2007 in the devices category.

Motorola’s wi4 WiMAX solutions are designed for fixed, portable, nomadic and mobile applications.

Motorola will also be demonstrating Long Term Evolution (LTE) at the Mobile World Congress 2008. Motorola will demonstrate High definition (HD) video blogging streaming live over LTE to an IPTV set-top box back home for family or friends to view.
