Runcom enabling products from Alcatel, Nortel

Runcom Technologies has made headlines this week. The Israeli-based OFDMA chip maker and Alcatel announced commercially ready products for early adopters of mobile WiMAX (IEEE 802.16e-2005) technology. Nortel earlier this week revealed that it struck a deal with Runcom for MIMO chipsets with the expectation that it will deliver MIMO-enabled mobile WiMAX gear by the middle of next year. While it appears Runcom came out of nowhere, it actually has a ton of OFDMA patents and has pioneered several OFDMA silicon solutions since 2000. We'll be seeing much more from Runcom in the future.
