MUNICH: Siemens today said in a statement that it is the first major telecommunications supplier whose products have been certified by the WiMAX Forum.


“The certification ensures the interoperability of systems from different vendors, thus reducing the investment risks for operators. The WiMAX Forum's goal is to establish WiMAX technology in the market,” the statement said.

The WayMAX@vantage solution from Siemens, which consists of a base station, modems and routers, has passed the interoperability tests in the WiMAX Forum's international standardization laboratory.

It is certified for the WiMAX FDD 3.5 GHz system and thus ready for the future IEEE 802.16e-2005 OFDM profile and the ETSI HiperMAN standard. The IEEE 802.16 standard used today allows data transmission at rates as high as high as 10.5 megabits per second in 3.5 MHz bandwidth.

“Siemens has been a member of WiMAX Forum from the very beginning and is one of the key contributors to IEEE 802.16 standard definition. WiMAX Forum certification confirms the leadership of Siemens' WiMAX technology," said Christoph Caselitz, president of Mobile Networks at Siemens Communications.
