Alcatel-Lucent has been awarded the WiMAX Forum Certified seal of approval for its WiMAX 802.16e compact base station at 2.5GHz. The company's infrastructure portfolio is made up of products that comply with the 802.16e-2005 standard (also called Rev-e), which supports fixed, nomadic and mobile services. The company's "Open CPE Program" is helping to accelerate the availability of terminals by encompassing comprehensive interoperability testing programs with WiMAX chipset and end-user device suppliers.

The company also sees this milestone as the first step toward the certification of its entire portfolio of WiMAX solutions already available in other licensed frequency bands and deployed in several networks worldwide, including some in commercial service today in Europe, Asia and Latin America. Alcatel-Lucent expects its 3.5GHz equipment to be WiMAX Forum-certified by the end of the year.

"Alcatel-Lucent is proud to receive the WiMAX Forum Certified designation, which acknowledges the development efforts we have made over the last four years," said Karim El Naggar, VP and head of Alcatel-Lucent's WiMAX activities. "Customers can be confident that Alcatel-Lucent's WiMAX solution complies with the most stringent requirements of the standard and smoothly interoperates with any WiMAX Forum Certified device."
