MWC - Fujitsu launches global WiMax business

Fujitsu entered the WiMax business on Wednesday with the launch of three new base stations and the unveiling of the BroadOne brand name.

Fujitsu entered the WiMax market on Wednesday with the global launch of its BroadOne brand and three base stations.

The company, which has a sizable telecommunications infrastructure division, has also tied up with Airspan Networks under a deal that will see both companies resell the other's products.

The first base station to hit the market is the BroadOne WX300. The WX300 is a macrocell base station that can cover a radius of several kilometers and will be available worldwide from April. The unit weighs about 20 kilograms and with a volume of 20 liters is the smallest outdoor macrocell base station available, according to Fujitsu.

The second unit is a microcell base station that will cover several hundred meters and is intended to be used in rural areas or those with a small number of people. Completing the range is a picocell base station that covers an area of tens of meters and can be used in buildings or offices.

All three base stations cover the 2.3GHz and 2.5GHz frequency bands. The base stations will be on show at the Mobile World Congress expo that runs from Feb. 11 to 14 in Barcelona.

This small mobile printer is exactly what I need for invoicing and other jobs such as sending fellow tradesman details or step-by-step instructions that I can easily print off from my phone or the Web.

Microsoft Office 365/Dell XPS 15 2-in-1

I’d recommend a Dell XPS 15 2-in-1 and the new Windows 10 to anyone who needs to get serious work done (before you kick back on your couch with your favourite Netflix show.)

Brother PT-P750W

It’s useful for office tasks as well as pragmatic labelling of equipment and storage – just don’t get too excited and label everything in sight!

Brother MFC-L8900CDW

The Brother MFC-L8900CDW is an absolute stand out. I struggle to fault it.

MSI GT75 TITAN

I need power and lots of it. As a Front End Web developer anything less just won’t cut it which is why the MSI GT75 is an outstanding laptop for me. It’s a sleek and futuristic looking, high quality, beast that has a touch of sci-fi flare about it.
