Fujitsu Microelectronics America Inc. (FMA) and Air Broadband Communications Inc. announced that Air Broadband has selected Fujitsu's WiMAX SoC for its new wireless IP switch-router implementations for WiMAX Access Control Routers (ACR) and base stations.

Air Broadband's wireless IP switch-routers, which are based on IEEE 802.11 WLAN and IEEE 802.16 WiMAX, provide fast layer 2 and layer 3 roaming and scalability in multi-cell networks, enabling real-time applications and management capabilities. According to the press release, the implementations for PiMAX ACR and base station provide the IP mobility, multi-vendor base-stations compatibility, wide scalability and per-flow QoS (MCSQ ) improvements needed for WiMAX deployment.

Introduced in April 2005, the MB87M3400 WiMAX SoC from FMA has already been designed into a wide range of WiMAX base station and subscriber-station products.

"The Fujitsu WiMAX SoC is an excellent design choice for our PiMAX ACR and base station," said Kenneth Kang, president of Air Broadband. "This versatile, flexible device provides all the performance and capabilities required for our PiMAX series products, which are positioned as IP networks equipment rather than CDMA-like equipment in areas of both price and interoperability."
