Alvarion announced the commercial availability of its BreezeMAX Si, a self-installable, all indoor WiMAX customer premises equipment (CPE) based on the WiMAX standard. Opening the door for mass-market deployment of WiMAX services everywhere, this new compact CPE from the BreezeMAX 3500 family uses advanced radio technology for improved indoor penetration and NLOS operation, enables simple end user plug and play installation, and paves the way for nomadic and portable services. Following trials with ten different operators, commercial units of the Si CPE—which use the Intel® PRO/Wireless 5116 broadband interface chip—are now available for order.
