Airspan WiMAX Plugfest

"With 33 companies participating in this latest WiMAX Forum PlugFest, we are seeing strong growth in the number of interoperable products and increased success during testing," said Ron Resnick, president and chairman of the WiMAX Forum. "Thanks to our member companies and PlugFest attendees, including Airspan, we are on track to begin certifying Mobile WiMAX products later this year. WiMAX Forum Certified mobile products will be interoperable, which is key in order to enhance the user experience while decreasing operator investment and consumer costs for broadband anywhere, anytime."Airspan has attended all of the WiMAX Forum public fixed and mobile PlugFests to date. Airspan has previously announced its intention to seek certification for its Mobile WiMAX versions of HiperMAX, MicroMAX and unique Quad-Band 16eUSB Mobile Station.
