HDTV Over Mobile WiMax
Japan Radio Company and Runcom Technologies have completed the development of WiMAX base station equipment and user terminals and jointly demonstrated the highest throughput ever achieved over Mobile WiMAX networks at the recent CTIA Conference. Based on an advanced version of the IEEE802.16e-2005 standard, operating at 2.5GHz, they achieved a record throughput of 30 megabits per second. A better solution than Google’s TISP, which apparently is not ‘so’ far fetched after-all.
According to the company press release:
“By running a High Definition TV application over a Mobile WiMAX Network enabled us to demonstrate the fantastic potential of Mobile WiMAX as a Broadband Access Technology ” said Israel Koffman, Runcom’s VP of Marketing; “The collaboration with a leading company in Radio technology such as JRC enabled the team to bring OFDMA technology to perform one of its highest records.”
Dr Fumio Murakami, General Manager of WiMAX Project at JRC noted: “Japan, as a Sophisticated Communications Markets is expecting superior performance from the WiMAX networks to compete with the existing broadband wireless networks in the country; The collaboration with a pioneer in OFDMA technology such as Runcom supported JRC in its plan to demonstrate such performance to the leading operators in Japan.”
