Fujitsu Network Communications introduces the BroadOne WX series of mobile WiMAX base stations. The company has designed its new base stations with many features to meet the global requirements for mobile WiMAX networks. The base stations consume low levels of power, deliver desirable performance, and are easy to install. As a result, mobile WiMAX service providers will be able to build their wireless broadband infrastructure at a lower cost and offer end-users service at more reasonable rates. Fujitsu plans to provide three base station models designed for the 2.5 GHz and 2.3 GHz frequency bands. The first model is the BroadOne WX300 outdoor macrocell base station which is configured as a single, lightweight unit and is designed for wide-area transmission over a radius of almost two miles. The second model, a compact outdoor microcell base station, is designed for transmission over a nearly 1,000 foot radius to fill in areas with a lower concentration of users and remote areas with poor coverage. The third model is an indoor, ultra-compact picocell base station. All base stations will support Multiple Input Multiple Output (MIMO) technology operating in both Matrix A and B to improve system performance.
