Motorola has launched a new point-to-multipoint (PMP) wireless broadband service designed to offer businesses fast and affordable connectivity.
The Motorola PMP 320 (PDF) offers service providers and enterprises a wireless broadband solution that can be co-located within existing Motorola PMP networks. This also allows network operators and service providers to keep infrastructure costs down, the firm said.
Motorola claimed that the PMP 320 had been designed to provide reliable and secure residential access, cost-effective enterprise connectivity or support for e-government applications.
The solution is available on frequency ranges 3.3GHz-3.4GHz, 3.4GHz-3.6GHz and 3.6GHz-3.8GHz to allow customers to use existing licences for fixed wireless broadband connectivity.
It also has an all-outdoor integrated radio and standards-based server that does not require specialised gateways, routers or servers, which Motorola said enables a quick and simple installation that yields a fast time to market and lower costs.
Tony Cecchin, senior director of global product operations for Motorola, explained that the solution would let network operators protect existing infrastructure investments while allowing them to extend services to different areas or offer new services to customers.
"PMP wireless broadband connectivity technologies continue to deliver innovative solutions that help businesses grow," he added.
The PMP 320 supports standard WiMax quality of service profiles, is interoperable with WiMax 802.16e CPEs, and uses AAA/RADIUS servers for authentication.
