Certification lab to open in October

Tuesday, 17 July, 2007


The WiMAX Forum has announced plans to open a North America-based certification test lab.

The lab will be established and operated by the WiMAX Forum's lead certification testing partner, AT4 wireless, Inc. It will be located in Virginia and is due to open this October.

The North America-based lab will become one of five test labs for WiMAX Forum Certified products worldwide.

The lab will initially be staffed by up to 25-30 employees and will conduct WiMAX Forum certification testing and radiated performance testing (RPT).

AT4 wireless has the responsibility to develop and replicate the certification test beds to match other test beds globally so that interoperability for all WiMAX Forum Certified devices is assured. WiMAX Forum members in the Americas may submit devices for certification at the Virginia facility in October.

In the future, the North America lab may provide capabilities to support the convergence of emerging wireless technologies such as Wi-Fi with WiMAX and Bluetooth with WiMAX.
