Hitachi Com and Alvarion to Cooperate in Developing Mobile WIMAX System
August 08, 2007
Hitachi Com and Alvarion have agreed to develop Broadband Mobile Wireless Access System using Mobile WiMAX technology jointly in Japan and overseas market.
The Ministry of Internal Affairs and Communications has developed the license policy of 2.5 GHz band. WiMAX is considered as the most likely candidate for Broadband Mobile Wireless Access Systems. To establish WiMAX technology, the base station, which can transmit broadband data stably, and the mobile management technology, which can realize seamless handover between base stations, are needed.
The main goal of this agreement is that Hitachi Com and Alvarion will develop total system solutions, combined with the base station technology of Alvarion, which is globally a leading company in WiMAX and broadband wireless systems, with the mobile gateway technology, construction and maintenance technology of Hitachi Com, which has the rich experience of 3G Mobile Radio Network System.
Hitachi Com is in charge of developing ASN-GW, while Alvarion is in charge of developing high performance macro/micro base stations.
Ultimately Hitachi Com, which has proven itself in the 3G mobile communication market, and Alvarion, hope to realize a new WiMAX system in Japan, that has high quality of career grade signal while still maintaining WiFi systems and deployment.
