NEC Corp. and ArrayComm LLC will collaborate to develop new WiMAX products that include ArrayComm's A-MAS multi-antenna signal processing software. The joint effort will deliver WiMAX base station products beginning mid-2009. NEC's customers will maintain full profile and standards compliance, including WiMAX Forum IO-MIMO and upcoming IO-Beamforming at an economical cost.

NEC's flexible PasoWings base station allows WiMAX users to connect across wide area wireless networks, delivering full mobility and high QoS. With the PasoWings platform, NEC brings development, manufacturing, system integration and field installation expertise into the joint effort.

ArrayComm's multi-antenna signal processing software, A-MAS, provides a combination of MIMO and adaptive interference cancellation that enhances WiMAX economics with significant range, capacity and throughput improvement. ArrayComm will contribute by jointly developing the PHY; software with integrated A-MAS.

"The collaboration with ArrayComm is essential in enhancing NEC's WiMAX base station products, which offer improved radio network economics to mobile operators around the world," said K. Jay Miyahara, chief engineer of NEC's mobile network operations unit.

"NEC's clear leadership, experience and PasoWings product line create a significant opportunity for both companies," said Bruce Duysen, president of ArrayComm.
