Motorola licenses WiMax chip set designs

Wireless apps maker Enfora is first licensee

Motorola announced Monday that it is licensing its reference design for mobile WiMax radio chip sets, and that Enfora is its first licensee.

The reference design, known as the WTM1000 (for WiMax Terminal Modem), is designed to deliver ultra-high-speed functionality through thin devices, Motorola said in a statement. Motorola will be offering intellectual property licenses.

The program is designed to accelerate the expansion of WiMax into a wider consumer base, Motorola said.

"We hope to foster the development of great new mobile Wimax devices and applications across the industry," said Gary Koerper, vice president of platform planning and systems architecture at Motorola.

Enfora, which is based in Dallas, supplies wireless network systems that support location-based monitoring and asset-management applications. The WTM1000 will be used in Enfora's eWide wireless networking systems.

Brother QL-820NWB Professional Label Printer

It’s easy to set up, it’s compact and quiet when printing and to top if off, the print quality is excellent. This is hands down the best printer I’ve used for printing labels.

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