According to Alcatel-Lucent, the network will enable services such as VoIP, high speed internet access and advanced multimedia broadband services for nomadic users, supported by computer-embedded end user devices.

Alcatel-Lucent will provide Neo-Sky with a complete WiMAX 802.16e-2005 (Rev-e) solution, including base stations and WiMAX access controllers, and IP multimedia subsystem (IMS) core networking equipment, software and application platforms and end-user terminals. The IMS architecture enables the delivery of advanced and personalized telephony and multimedia services from fixed and mobile access. Alcatel-Lucent also will provide design and planning for integration of Neo-Sky’s network along with maintenance and provisioning services.

Cesar Arranz, executive president of Neo-Sky, said: With this WiMAX field trial we are laying the foundations to know the performances that the future commercial networks will be able to support to meet our corporate customer’s requirements for easy-to-use wireless broadband services offering nomadic capabilities, including voice, data, and multimedia, and best-in-class quality of service.
