Motorola launches WiMAX ASN 1000 gateway, CPEi 090

Offers services in low teledensity or low average revenue per user (ARPU) markets

By CBR Staff Writer

The Home & Networks Mobility business of Motorola has unveiled a new tier of products that make it possible for operators to deliver service in less populated markets.

The company claims that the new WiMAX ASN 1000 gateway decreases the initial cost of deploying a smaller network or in low teledensity areas, while the indoor desktop CPEi 090 allows operators to pursue new market segments.

According to Motorola, the new WiMAX ASN 1000 Gateway delivers services in low teledensity or low average revenue per user (ARPU) markets, which serves up to 24,000 subscribers. It comes with a five-unit rack and can manage up to 200 access points and interoperates with the company’s larger capacity ASN gateway and can be upgraded to acommodate up to 200,000 subscribers.

Built on Motorola’s fourth release of commercial WiMAX software, the ASN 1000 offers a suite of offerings such as machine-to-machine, wholesale, VoIP, premium mobility and data that enables operators to customise services or bundle offerings for a potentially higher ARPU, Motorola said.

The company said that the CPEi 090 is a customer premises equipment (CPE) that enables operators to pursue price-sensitive consumers, and gain entry into markets that yield low ARPU. With the CPEi 090, the company is expected to offer various devices from basic data to multiple-port units that incorporate data, voice and WiFi at a variety of price points.

Bruce Brda, senior vice president of Motorola Home & Networks Mobility, said: “There are opportunities – and a great need – for wireless broadband in many markets currently unserved or underserved. But low teledensity deployments or price-sensitive customers make it tough for operators to close the business case. We are responding to that market need with another tier of WiMAX solutions that help operators profitably deploy service in even the most challenging markets.”

The CPEi 090 is expected to be available in 3.5GHz during Q2 2010, to be followed by a version for 2.5GHz bands.
