Motorola Introduces Its Most Dominant WiMAX Desktop Home Networking Device

New all-in-one indoor device simplifies home access to data, voice and Wi-Fi.

The Motorola Solutions business of Motorola, Inc. today at 4G World 2010 introduced the WiMAX indoor customer premises equipment (CPEi) 890, its most powerful desktop home networking device to-date. The sleek all-in-one device provides high-performance wireless broadband access, including data, voice and Wi-Fi to home subscribers in frequencies over 2.5 GHz frequencies.


  • The Motorola CPEi 890 for WiMAX (IEEE 802.16e) networks combines three solutions into one by providing an integrated data, voice and Wi-Fi device for home communications and networking.
  • The CPEi 890 offers integrated state-of-the-art, high-end 802.11 b/g/n router functionality, including 2×2 “n” support and advanced features such as Wi-Fi Protected Set-up (WPS)
  • The CPEi 890 can save scarce network resources in a fully loaded commercial network, resulting in increased overall capacity of the network.
  • Subscribers simply connect the device to their computer and voice handsets, set their personal Wi-Fi network, and the device is ready to offer a unique all-in-one Wide Area Network (WAN), Local Area Network (LAN) and Voice Over Internet Protocol (VoIP) residential communications network.
  • This compact, plug-and-play device includes a Wi-Fi router and a high-powered radio and antenna. This offers subscribers a strong signal with improved broadband throughput rates and quality of service in the home.
  • With its plug and play design and ease of upgrades via over-the-air (OTA) software, the CPEi 890 helps operators eliminate the need for costly truck rolls or operator intervention.
  • The CPEi 890 outperforms Motorola’s previous generation products with more than twice the power with its dual transmit paths, additional hybrid diversity gain and more.

“The high-powered radio design of the CPEi 890 offers end users the strongest possible signals and as a result, better broadband throughput rates and improved service. At the same time, it offers operators lower capital and operational expenditures and greater potential for network expansion.”
