Navini shows pre-mobile WiMAX in 2.3 GHz

Navini Networks' debut of the pre-mobile WiMAX Ripwave MX platform in the 2.3 GHz band positions the company as the only vendor to offer commercial deployment of the frequency in the U.S. The frequency is heavily regulated by the FCC due to the proximity of neighboring satellite radio repeaters, including XM satellite radio. These repeaters may also limit the effectiveness of WiMAX due to the shared "S" band. The company is also the only vendor with access to C and D WCS blocks.
