Greenpacket sees momentum with WiMAX

Greenpacket announced its momentum in the European WiMAX market, highlighting device deals with Italy's Aira and Bulgaria's Max Telecom.

The vendor said that its WiMAX devices are now deployed in one in three European Union countries with growth occurring in countries such as Hungary, Italy, Portugal, Romania and Spain.

"Our consecutive wins in the region prove that operators have confidence in our products. We see 4G WiMAX playing a significant role especially in Eastern Europe," Kelvin Lee, senior general manager of Greenpacket, said in a release. "The technology is well-suited as the most cost effective fixed-DSL replacement for rural connectivity; serving areas where wireline broadband is unavailable and 3G wireless broadband is limited and of low-quality."

Greenpacket is currently deploying to operators such as Clearwire, Zapp, MVM and 2K Telecom.
