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.

The print quality also does not disappoint, it’s clear, bold, doesn’t smudge and the text is perfectly sized.

It’s perfect for mobile workers. Just take it out — it’s small enough to sit anywhere — turn it on, load a sheet of paper, and start printing.
