Aeroflex, CETECOM Win WiMAX Forum Tender
March 06, 2006
Aeroflex has announced that its joint bid with Centro de Tecnología de las Comunicaciones (CETECOM Spain) has been successful in winning the contract from the WiMAX Forum to develop the protocol conformance test solution for the new WiMAX 802.16e technology standard. The contract win follows the recent open call for tenders initiated by the WiMAX Forum.
The first product Aeroflex and CETECOM will bring to market is a base station emulator for the protocol conformance testing of mobile stations that will execute ETSI approved TTCN-3 test cases. Early functionality will be available to support development efforts with a fully functional development system available later. A mobile emulator for base station testing will follow shortly after. Delivery of the WiMAX 802.16e protocol conformance test solution is planned for the second half of 2006.
“Protocol conformance test for WiMAX 802.16e devices is a critical requirement to support the dynamic growth of WiMAX during 2006,” said Andres Moreno, CETECOM Wireless Division Director. “As the world’s only WiMAX Forum approved certification laboratory, we will also be using the WiMAX 802.16e protocol conformance test solution to certify the first wave of WiMAX 802.16e devices expected late 2006.”
The success of the joint Aeroflex/CETECOM WiMAX 802.16e bid will result in an even closer collaboration between the two companies in what they both see as an important new market for them.
