Samsung WiMAX 2 hits 330 Mbps, devices to launch in 2011
A new report says that Samsung Electronics will reveal its progress in shaping the future of Mobile WiMAX at CEATEC JAPAN 2010, in Tokyo, Japan. With Samsung’s developed WiMAX 2 trial system, UQ Communications is demonstrating WiMAX 2 based on IEEE 802.16m with a speed of 330Mbps. UQ Communications and Samsung are showing Full-HD 3D videos and 16 Full-HD videos on 4 LFD (Large Format Display) TVs at the same time using its WiMAX 2 trial systems and device. To do this, Samsung’s commercial Mobile WiMAX base station is used which is currently deployed and operated by major Mobile WiMAX operators around the world.

WiMAX 2 based on IEEE 802.16m standard enables more efficient, faster, and more converged data communications. WiMAX 2 provides strong integration compatibility with deployed Mobile WiMAX solutions. It also allows current Mobile WiMAX operators to migrate their solutions to WiMAX 2 by upgrading channel cards or their system software. In addition, the subscribers who currently use Mobile WiMAX devices can communicate with new WiMAX 2 systems without difficulty.

WiMAX 2 standards are expected to be finalized by November 2010. Samsung is seeking to take the lead in its rapid commercialization and deployment and show itself to be a leading system and device provider for Mobile WiMAX. Samsung plans to introduce the first commercial solutions of WiMAX 2 in the end of 2011.
