Unwired Fiji selects Motorola to design and deploy WiMAX network

Expects to offer advanced broadband services supported by Motorola's carrier-grade communications equipment and services

By CBR Staff Writer

Wireless broadband internet services provider Unwired Fiji has selected Motorola to design and deploy an 802.16e-based WiMAX network to upgrade and provide increased capacity to its existing network for expansion of network coverage and capacity.

The deployment allows Unwired Fiji to offer advanced broadband services supported by Motorola’s carrier-grade communications equipment and services, strengthening the operator’s position in the region, said Motorola.

The WiMAX network deployment is expected to be completed in 2009, and the operator plans to launch services progressively in 2009.

William Parkinson, CEO of Unwired Fiji, said: Motorola’s scalable WiMAX solution provides us with a network upgrade path that should meet our growing demands while achieving outstanding service quality at a lower cost. After the deployment, our most advanced network in the market will allow us to offer cutting-edge services to customers.

Eric Starnes, vice president of sales and operations for home and networks mobility at Motorola Asia, said: With our leading end-to-end WiMAX solutions and expertise, we are able to design, supply and deploy a world-class network for Unwired Fiji to enable its future growth. Our carrier-grade WiMAX solutions are flexible and scalable enough for mobile networks of various size and layout. They are also affordable for operators with smaller operations, allowing them to reserve head room for further business growth.
