Motorola introduces 2.5 GHz WiMAX CPE

Motorola unveiled WiMAX customer premise equipment (CPE) before the Consumer Electronics Show kicked off this week in Las Vegas. Motorola's new CEPi 100 is a single data port WiMAX modem that operates in the 2.5 GHz band. The modem is designed to sit on a desktop and is the smallest CPE WiMAX-based CPE device the vendor has launched to date. The CPE unit will be available later this year and of course will be compatible with Sprint's and Clearwire's WiMAX networks.

Motorola is planning a drive demo of WiMAX around Las Vegas. Motorola has already demonstrated hand-offs between WiMAX base stations at 50 miles per hour in Chicago.
