Antenna maker SkyCross Inc. and WiMAX market pioneer Beceem Communications have partnered to provide complete, integrated WiMAX solutions for last-mile broadband connectivity.

The bundling of Beceem chipsets and Skycross antennas shortens and simplifies the design process to reduce time-to-market and associated costs. The one-stop RF solution is versatile, providing device manufacturers the freedom to enable WiMAX on a wide range of mobile platforms.

"The combined offering from Beceem and SkyCross sets an industry benchmark for high performance and low power consumption for WiMAX systems," said David Patterson, VP of marketing at Beceem. "We are pleased to offer an optimized solution with SkyCross, a fellow pioneer in the WiMAX market."

"This partnership is an important strategic step as SkyCross extends its position in the WiMAX arena," said Chris Morton, CEO of SkyCross.

Beceem offers a chipset solution suitable for mobile, portable, and fixed applications for the approved IEEE 802.16E standard. SkyCross designed and manufactured the first antennas for Samsung PC cards sold in South Korea for WiBro, a WiMAX-compliant offering.
