Huawei says the mobile WiMAX network it supplied to Perth based vividwireless is the world's first to use four transmit and receive antennas and beamforming and is able to deliver bandwidths of 36Mbps downstream and 4Mbps upstream 3kms from the base station.
vividwireless has extended its mobile WiMAX network to areas around the Australian National University and universities of Queensland and Adelaide and says an announcement of funding for large scale rollouts in these cities and in Melbourne and Sydney could be "imminent".
Vividwireless says it is sufficiently impressed with the price and performance of TD-LTE technology that it could use if for the deployment of planned network expansions in major East Coast capital cities.
The mobile WiMAX base station supplied by Huawei for the vividwireless networks has become one of the first WiMAX products to receive the WiMAX Forum seal of approval for operation with multiple antennas (MIMO) in the 2.3GHz band.
Last week at CES, Netflix announced that a number of ISPs had adopted its Open Connect technology, which provides a more direct connection between it and a cable operator, lowering the cost of delivery and increasing the quality of its streaming video.
