Cambridge Broadband announces an addition to its VectaStar product family, by adding WiMAX support to its multi-service platform together with an expansion into new frequency bands. Cambridge Broadband has partnered with SEQUANS Communications to develop a product called VectaMAX. VectaMAX will integrate Sequans’ WiMAX System-on-a-Chip (SoC) into VectaStar customer premise equipment to produce a WiMAX pico-base station with integrated backhaul. VectaMAX will offer local coverage in a range of licensed and unlicensed bands, supporting connectivity with Intel’s Rosedale and other WiMAX chipset vendor enabled CPEs. The backhaul traffic will be carried on the core VectaStar network together with a mix of traffic types such as E1/T1, ATM, and IP as part of a complete alternate access network. VectaMAX pico-base stations can be incorporated in any new or currently deployed VectaStar networks.
