WiMAX System Tuned For Use In 5.8GHz Unlicensed Band

Wavesat and Texas Instruments are teaming up to create a mini-PCI module and reference design to allow the use of WiMAX in the unlicensed 5.8GHz frequency band. The plan is to employ Wavesat’s Evolutive WiMAX DM256 chip and TI’s RF silicon for the platform. “Because 5.8GHz is an unlicensed frequency band, it can be rapidly deployed by wireless Internet service providers around the world and especially in North America, where it is the only WiMAX Forum profile currently deployable,” Vijay Dube, Wavesat’s vice president for marketing and business development, said.
