Clearwire trials mobile WiMAX

Clearwire Corp. says it successfully completed the first phase of its mobile WiMAX field trial in Hillsboro, Oregon, a suburb of Portland. Intel and Motorola participated in the trial, which used Clearwire's 2.5 GHz spectrum and equipment based on the 802.16e standard.

The first phase of the trial focused on coverage, capacity and speed. "By demonstrating initial performance consistent with the WiMAX industry standards, we are making great progress in our ability to evolve our networks," says Scott Richardson, Clearwire chief strategy officer.

Hear more about Clearwire's mobile WiMAX trial and other developments at the FierceMarkets WiMAX Strategies conference June 21 in Chicago. Richardson will be a keynote speaker at the conference, along with Barry West, CTO and president of Sprint Nextel's 4G Mobile Broadband.
