WiMAX System Integrator - AlanDick

First systems integrator joins WiMAX Forum

Turtle Consulting Group
March 28, 2006

AlanDick, the broadcast, cellular, radar, enterprise and communications infrastructure specialist, has joined the WiMAX Forum™, an industry-led organisation that promotes the interoperability and certification of broadband wireless products based on the IEEE 802.16 standard.

The company is honoured to be the first systems and services integrator to join the ranks of the dozens of vendors, operators and other developers that go to make up the membership of the Forum. It’s a measure of the maturity that WiMAX is now reaching in the marketplace that has encouraged integrators like AlanDick to join the Forum.

The move is an important one for AlanDick, which is globally renowned integrator of broadband wireless access technology, since it allows the group to add its considerable knowledge of WiFi technology and real-world planning and deployment to the forum’s resource pool.

“WiMAX is increasingly high on the discussion menu at the various shows and conferences at which AlanDick exhibits During February we had stands at no less than five key events around the world, ranging from Expo Comms in Mexico right through to BSE Expo in New Delhi. At all of these events, including, of course, 3GSM in Barcelona, WiMAX was on the agenda of most attendees,” said John Oliver, AlanDick’s Group Product Manager.

“We will be exhibiting at the CTIA Wireless event due to be held in Las Vegas in April, as well as CommunicAsia 2006 due to be held in Singapore in June, and we fully expect to be actively discussing the future of WiMAX at both of these shows. Joining the WIMAX Forum will allow us to use the knowledge we glean at the global key events we regularly exhibit at – together with our vast experience of WiFi planning and deployment around the globe - to further the WiMAX standards as they continue to evolve,” he added.

According to Oliver, the WiMAX Forum seeks to stimulate the development of new products based on the IEEE 802.16 standard and so create new revenue opportunities for fixed, mobile and start up operators.

This is particularly necessary, he says, with the ongoing development of next-generation networks, as well as completely new markets, such as Internet telephony services, that are springing up around the world.

“These new revenue opportunities are crucial to the wireless industry’s continued investment in the development of new standards, as well as the evolution of existing standards,“ he said.

“With more than three decades of experience in the communications space, AlanDick has a wide range of skill sets and knowledge in integrating wireless technologies for a large number of carriers and private companies. WiMAX Forum certification is the next logical step in our ongoing commitment to provide our customers with the latest wireless services and solutions for today’s marketplace,” he added.

“The WiMAX Forum is striving to create economies of scale made possible by standards-based, interoperable products that drive price and performance to levels not achievable by proprietary approaches. WiMAX technology is designed to help service providers across global markets deliver economical broadband data, voice and video services to both residential and business customers,” he said.
