Alcatel WiMAX Test Center Opens

Alcatel and India’s state-run Center for Development of Telematics (C-Dot) have opened a research center for the development of ready-to-industrialize products and reference designs that are based on WiMax Forum standards. The facility seeks to show the advantages of WiMAX IEEE 802.16e- 2005 and the residential and business uses of VoIP, high-speed Internet connection, as well as multimedia applications like IPTV, mobile TV, and video streaming.

Research firms Tonse Telecom and Maravedis projected that WiMax subscribers in India will number 13 million by 2012. Several companies are currently undertaking a trial of the technology in the country, including Intel, which has launched a pilot project in a Maharashtra hospital.
