Motorola Expands Low Teledensity WiMAX Deployment Options for Small Operators.
The Networks business of Motorola, Inc. announced today its selection of Eden Rock Communications, LLC (“Eden Rock”) to serve as a system integrator for delivering Motorola’s WiMAX end-to-end (E2E) low teledensity solutions. In this capacity, Eden Rock will provide system engineering services for the E2E network, integrate and test the E2E network and develop tools along with methods and procedures for the E2E WiMAX network. Eden Rock will host a fully integrated testing site for the E2E network – open to current and potential customers at its labs in Saltillo, Mexico.
The Motorola low teledensity WiMAX solution is well-suited for deployments by small operators servicing smaller demographic areas of coverage or lower ARPU options. By leveraging technology that can help drive down the cost per subscriber, operators can achieve greater cost savings and higher margins per subscriber.
“Motorola continues to be a leader in WiMAX infrastructure solutions. Motorola’s WiMAX low teledensity solution offers small operators the opportunity to take advantage of the same benefits that larger WiMAX operators have realized for quite some time,” said Chaz Immendorf, president and CEO of Eden Rock Communications. Immendorf added, “The services offered by Eden Rock enable smaller operators to create their own ‘virtual 4G technology team,’ leveraging the same support resources as some of Motorola’s largest WiMAX customers.”
“This initiative between Motorola and Eden Rock can save small WiMAX operators OPEX and CAPEX costs by defining a complete reference network that may be replicated into a fully-integrated, turnkey E2E WiMAX system,” said Fred Gabbard, vice president of product management, Motorola Networks. “With Eden Rock’s E2E and technology expertise and Motorola’s product leadership, we have created a powerful combination that is ready to deliver WiMAX networks to this important community of smaller operators, many of whom are pursuing challenging business cases.”
