Yozan has set up a WiMAX feasibility test in the Hokuriku region in Japan building on their previously announced Tokyo network, valued at $16.7 million, to deliver high-speed IP connectivity capable of a wide array of data service offerings. Hokuriku is typical of Japan’s mountainous regions in which it will be more challenging to implement WiMAX infrastructure.
Yozan announced a trial with America’s Tropos Networks, and the Tropos WiFi mesh network, in July. Yozan uses WiMAX 4.9GHz as the backhaul and for nomadic front-end, they use Wi-Fi and mobile WiMAX on IEEE 802.16e, as is becoming popular worldwide. Via: Wireless Design
