Chunghwa Telecom and Nortel to build WiMAX network in Taiwan

Chunghwa Telecom and Nortel are teaming up to build Taiwan's first integrated local government WiMAX network in Yilan, providing county-wide broadband wireless access.

By CBR Staff Writer

As part of the Mobile-Taiwan (M-Taiwan) project, the WiMAX infrastructure will

enable broadband wireless access to such services as M-Learning, M-Commerce, and M-Tour, as well as video surveillance and IPTV services.

Chunghwa Telecom said that it will work with Nortel to extend the same integrated wireless capabilities to other areas of Taiwan to help bolster the competitiveness of local economies.

The people of Yilan will now be able to take the internet with them wherever they go, and enjoy high-speed mobile access using virtually any wireless-enabled device, said Jackson Wu, president for Greater China at Nortel.

Nortel is providing Chunghwa Telecom with Mobile WiMAX base stations, based on the IEEE 802.16e standard, incorporating Nortel’s patented MIMO antenna technology. Nortel’s MIMO will enable the provision of real-time applications such as VoIP and voice over WiMAX.

Nortel will also provide an access service network gateway, customer premises equipment, and network management capabilities, as well as network integration and optimization services provided by Nortel Global Services.
