Is anyone looking for Axxcelera WiMAX 3.65GHz equipment?

Is anyone looking for Axxcelera WiMAX 3.65GHz equipment?

I have access to 12 ExcelMAX Base Station and AP Antennas and over 300 WiMAX CPE all in 100% working condition.

This is a "feeler" and not a hard sell. This network is currently up and fully operational. It will be getting a complete change out to an LTE RAN so the 300+ business' currently on Axxcelera will be migrated over a 30-day period.

Talk to me Goose!

Many times when a new technology emerges a rather heated debate arises. Not too long ago in the wireless broadband industry, the camps representing WiMAX and LTE did not miss the opportunity to advocate for their respective views and sharing potential benefits of their standpoints against the other. Over time, when arguments and feelings calm down a bit, a more sensible discussion can emerge and I think we’ve entered this now.

Making the “right” technology choices is always high on…

Carrier-Grade Service using Wi-Fi Over WiMAX

At the end of my previous post, I touched on the opportunity for existing WiMAX operators to take a role in the current quest to provide high-capacity network services for 3G and Wi-Fi-enabled mobile devices like smartphones and tablets.

Consider this: a residential suburb close to a large metropolitan area with limited broadband options today. This is typically one of the locations where the cellular networks providing 3G services are running into capacity congestions, particularly…

The Future of WiMAX

Close to six years have passed since Aptilo Networks decided to put a serious effort into the WiMAX market as a provider of back-office support systems. Back in those days, WiMAX was very much touted in media and by analysts as the technology to challenge the cellular industry dominance/hegemony. With hindsight, most of us in the business realized that this was never the real beauty and purpose of this new technology but of course happily tagged along for various reasons.
