Motorola debuts new WiMax kit


Motorola has announced the latest addition to its portfolio of WiMax customer premises equipment (CPE) – the CPEi 100.  The CPEi 100 is a single data port, 2.5 GHz “plug-and-play” WiMax solution that delivers reliable, wireless broadband Internet connectivity.

It is designed to sit on a desktop and serve as the interface between a computer and the WiMax network.
The CPEi 100 joins Motorola’s award-winning portfolio of WiMax 802.16e CPEs and is part of the MOTOwi4 family of broadband wireless access products.  It is expected to be available in 2008 for WiMax operators who have systems in the 2.5 GHz band.
“Performance and ease-of-use are essential to motivate consumers to upgrade to higher performance wireless broadband technologies,“ says Fred Wright, Motorola senior vice president, Cellular Networks & Broadband.  
“The CPEi 100 provides that experience and enables WiMAX operators to offer a home device that consumers can install and setup in only a matter of minutes.”
Motorola’s wi4 WiMAX solutions are designed to support fixed, portable, nomadic and mobile applications. The WiMax access points, CPEs and mobile WiMax chipsets under development for use in Motorola’s devices are part of the MOTOwi4 portfolio of solutions that complement and complete wireless broadband networks.
