The test results exceeded our expectations for delivering differentiable voice and data services in the 3.65 GHz band. This platform also gives us the flexibility to roll out services in the 5.8 GHz band and that is a powerful option that we may use in the future.”
In addition to supporting the 3.65 GHz and 5.8 GHz bands, PacketMAX also supports the 2.5 GHz, 3.3 GHz, 3.5 GHz, and 4.9 GHz bands. As a result, Aperto now offers WiMAX solutions for the widest range of licensed and licensed-exempt frequencies in the world.
The PacketMAX family of products delivers the critical elements required to extend wireless broadband services to a wide range of users—ranging from governments, large enterprises and public-sector organizations to multi-tenant buildings and residences—using a single, standards-based platform. The company’s flagship product, the PacketMAX 5000 base station, is also the only carrier-grade base station that can support and operate both the IEEE802.16-2004 and IEEE802.16-2005 WiMAX standards simultaneously.
