NextWave teams with Taiwan carrier for WiMAX TV

Taiwanese WiMAX operator Global Mobile Corp. and NextWave Wireless announced a joint technology agreement to make end-to-end mobile WiMAX solutions.

The two plan to set up a WiMAX field trial and demonstration network to leverage the solutions, which will include mobile TV powered by NextWave's MXtv technology. The trial network will be deployed in Taipei. As part of the field trial, Global Mobile will deploy an end-to-end system of NextWave's new V5 base transceiver station and ASN gateway platform.

NextWave introduced MXtv in March. The company says the technology will enable operators to deliver a range of multimedia services, including mobile TV, interactive media and digital audio without having to invest in new spectrum or extra radio access network equipment. MXtv is a similar proposition to NextWave's UMTS MBMS-based TDtv.
