NEC said in a statement that it would bring development, manufacturing, system integration, and field installation expertise into the joint effort, primarily from its existing PasoWings base stations.
ArrayComm will contribute by jointly developing the PHY2 software with integrated A-MASTM, the company said.
The first jointly developed base station products are anticipated to be ready in mid-2009.
“The collaboration with ArrayComm is essential in enhancing NEC’s WiMAX base station products,” said K. Jay Miyahara, chief engineer at NEC’s mobile network operations unit.
“NEC is committed to continuously enhancing our base station performance by adopting ArrayComm's leading-edge MAS solutions in order to deliver differentiated wireless broadband experience through gains in coverage and data rates."
