NEC Corp. has received an order from Taiwan's Tatung InfoComm for Mobile WiMAX systems for commercial service.

NEC will deliver total mobile WiMAX systems consisting of approximately 200 base stations along with peripheral equipment to Tatung.

In August 2007, WiMAX commercial licenses were issued to six operators in Taiwan, including Tatung. Both companies jointly carried out WiMAX-based government medical service trials in Hualien City earlier this year. The trials were followed by demonstrations at the Taiwan WiMAX Forum in October 2008, which were based on the transportation of a patient by ambulance to the hospital. The demonstrations were a part of the M-Taiwan Project being undertaken by the Taiwanese government to promote the construction of an advanced information society and encourage the growth of domestic industry.

NEC believes its contribution to the implementation of the trials and the demonstrations held at the forum clearly proved the technological superiority of its WiMAX systems, which lead to the order from Tatung.
