Motorola’s Award-Winning WiMAX CPEi 300 Marks Debut with Live Performance at WiMAX World USA
Stylish, compact and easy to install CPEi 300 brings WiMAX coverage inside for home and small office use; provides both VoIP and data access
WIMAX WORLD USA – CHICAGO.-Motorola, Inc. (NYSE: MOT), a leading provider of end-to-end WiMAX solutions, will showcase its award-winning CPEi 300 as part of the live WiMAX experience at the Motorola booth (#501) at WiMAX World USA in Chicago Sept. 26-27.
The new, sleek CPEi 300 Series is a desktop consumer device that provides wireless broadband connectivity to the unserved or underserved. This customer premises equipment (CPE) features one data port for basic, data-centric operations and two analog terminal adaptors (ATAs) so end users can plug in their existing analog phones for VoIP service. The WiMAX CPEi 300 is scheduled to be available to operators in Q4 2007.
“As a global vendor of WiMAX solutions, Motorola has designed a versatile portfolio of access points, customer premises equipment, chipsets, services and devices that addresses the varying wants and needs from operators around the world with economics that make sense for any given market,” said Fred Wright, senior vice president responsible for Motorola’s Home & Networks Mobility WiMAX business. “The CPEi 300 is an entry-level, reduced cost device that provides fixed, wireless broadband connections to bandwidth intensive, rich media applications, voice, data, and video services.”
Motorola’s WiMAX CPEi 300 Series desktop CPE is fully compliant to the IEEE 802.16e-2005 technology standard and will be delivered for WiMAX Forum™ certification to ensure interoperability among the global WiMAX ecosystem. While the 802.16e technology standard often is termed “mobile WiMAX” and is capable of delivering cellular-like mobility with broadband data speeds, Motorola recognizes that mobile WiMAX is an excellent choice for operators because it can deliver higher throughput, resulting in a better end user experience for fixed applications. Like all other Motorola CPE, the CPEi 300 employs multiple antenna technology which delivers increased range and higher throughput when compared to products with single antenna solutions.
From its exceptional ease of use, the plug-and-play Motorola CPEi 300 Series Desktop offers a WiMAX solution tailored to appeal to end-users. Featuring the Intel® WiMAX Connection 2250 chipset, it delivers fast, reliable, high-speed wireless broadband connectivity with no waiting for installation, no complex configuration and no operator intervention. The simple, low-profile and appealing form-factor manages to pack tremendous technology capabilities including multi-antenna operations and sophisticated signal processing, flexible and reprogrammable hardware for over-the-air updates, meaning potentially lower deployment costs and fewer support calls for operators.
The Motorola CPEi 300 received the WiMAX World Europe 2007 Award in the devices category in a competition sponsored by Xchange magazine.
Motorola’s end-to-end portfolio of WiMAX solutions includes access points, services, chipsets and devices including:
* - outdoor subscriber units with unobtrusive installation and significant advantages in coverage and capacity
* - self-install desktop subscriber units effectively receiving signals through the building walls
* - PC cards to bring the WiMAX connection directly to the laptop for a nomadic experience
* - handsets featuring multimode/multi-band operations with cellular-like mobile performance with broadband-like data throughput
* - chipsets uniquely designed to deliver ultra-high-speed functionality through thin devices
