High-Performance 4G-WiMAX Modem Products Launched Based on Beceem’s BCSx350 Chip

Gemtek, a leading provider of Telecommunications Devices, and Beceem, a leading provider of 4G chips, announced the launch of Gemtek’s new CPE and USB WiMAX modem product line, based on Beceem’s BCSx350 4G-WiMAX chip.

The new modems are developed specifically to improve the device performance in the uplink, thereby significantly enhancing the coverage of an operator’s network. The advanced uplink is based on Beceem’s unique “Twin Turbo,” a patented dual transmit uplink technology that provides up to 6 dB of performance gain compared to traditional Wave 2 uplink technology.

The BCSx350 also supports more than 40 Mb/s peak downlink throughput, more than 10 Mb/s faster than most existing 4G-WiMAX devices.

“Our Twin Turbo solution offers significant uplink performance improvements over traditional WiMAX modems. Operators are very sensitive to the uplink capabilities of the devices in their network, since the uplink has direct impact on network spending and quality,” said James Chen, senior director of marketing for Beceem Communications.

“The up to 6dB of extra gain provided by the Twin Turbo will make Gemtek’s new CPE and USB modems the clear performance Benchmark in the industry.”

Sampling since Q1, the BCSx350 comes in two models: the BCSM350 for mobile/embedded devices and BCS5350 for high-performance, low-cost CPE (customer premise equipment) that simultaneously support Data, Voice and WiFi on a single chip.
