Fujitsu Microelectronics and Cisco Systems Inc. are partnering for a multivendor presentation of interoperable video streaming using mobile WiMAX with beamforming and MIMO capabilities.

Fujitsu Microelectronics America has already showcased, late last year, multivendor interoperability with Navini Networks, when they introduced the beamforming technology that resulted in doubling the system capacity of mobile WiMAX.

The two interoperating systems were Navini's Ripwave MX8 base station running Mobile WiMAX software and customer premise equipment (CPE) reference design prototype based on the Fujitsu MB86K21 802.16e-2005 Mobile WiMAX chip.

The next release is expected for the WiMAX World Congress, which is scheduled Sept. 30 in Chicago.

It will present video streaming using the Cisco BWX300 WiMAX base station and the Fujitsu CPE. In the launch, multiple video streaming and ftp files will be wirelessly transferred between the Cisco WiMAX base station and the Fujitsu USB dongle.

Fujitsu will also highlight products produced by its ODM partner that are powered by the Fujitsu mobile WiMAX chipset. The chipset has the Fujitsu MB86K21, a one-chip MAC and PHY mixed signal baseband SoC, and the MB86K71 RF module, which integrates an RFIC, antenna switches, power amplifier, filters and an oscillator circuit.

Another demonstration will have a Fujitsu base station transmitting real-time video from a Web camera linking the base station and the CPE.
