Proxim Wins German WiMax Deal
Proxim will provide base stations and user units for an area covering 12,400 square miles.Telecommunications provider Televersa Online selected Proxim Wireless equipment June 1 to build a WiMax network covering an area of 12,400 square miles with a population of 2.5 million people. Televersa aims to reach 95 percent of the Bavarian region's households and businesses, while wired DSL connections are available to only 60 percent. Televersa has already deployed Proxim's Tsunami MP.11 base stations and subscriber units as the core communications platform for its wireless service. Following the deployment of a WiMax network, Televersa will be able to offer either wireless DSL or WiMax depending upon the customer's location.
The company's portfolio of services includes Internet access, VOIP telephony and video streaming. Proxim's license-free MP.11 technology allows Televersa to offer service in regions outside of Televersa's WiMax license as well as offer Internet connections to areas with fewer than 50 customers.
