Continuing its leadership in broadband technologies that deliver personal media experiences in the home and beyond, Motorola introduced the Motorola wi4 WiMAX CPEi 775, an all-in-one access device that combines a high performing WiMAX 802.16e modem with an integrated Wi-Fi 802.11 b/g router, VoIP ATA ports for voice calling, and an Ethernet port. The CPEi 775 has a sleek, ultra-thin form factor that can be made available to service providers in a variety of eye-catching colors.
The second generation CPEi 775 follows the award winning CPEi 850, and once again raises the bar on performance for the rest of the industry. By incorporating adaptive switching techniques, the CPEi 775 does not need to be rotated for optimal signal strength, allowing easier installation. With some of the most advanced antenna designs available today, the CPEi 775 sets new standards for device transmit power and receive sensitivity — two factors that have a big impact on a network operator's bottom line, and the number of cells required to provide coverage.
“As mobile WiMAX networks proliferate globally service providers are looking for ways to leverage the speed and performance of WiMAX for more advanced services,” said Charles Riggle, senior director of strategy and business development, WiMAX devices, Motorola Home & Networks Mobility. “It takes considerable know-how to put two different radio technologies together in a single package with internal antennas and not suffer from interference or degraded throughput. With the CPEi 775, we are able to provide high performance in a very attractive form factor.”
Like all of Motorola's wireless broadband products, the CPEi 775 is the result of a rigorous design and manufacturing process that puts quality and reliability first. This, combined with the CPEi 775's simple plug-and-play installation and over-the-air software upgrade capabilities ultimately leads to reduced support costs and greater customer satisfaction.
“Multimedia-dependent consumers keep a close eye on the evolving capabilities of wireless broadband and increase their expectations at a rapid pace: not just more, faster data, but data wherever, however, and whenever they want it,” Riggle added. “Motorola's success in this industry comes from our ability to meet these demands, and this new product illustrates that by connecting Wi-Fi devices to a WiMAX network.”
The Motorola wi4 WiMAX CPEi 775 is WiMAX Forum(R) Wave 2 ready and is available today in the 3.5 GHz band with support for the 5MHz, 7MHz, and 10 MHz bandwidths.
