WiMAX World: Alcatel-Lucent partners with Kyocera

Alcatel-Lucent announced a joint venture partnership with Kyocera at WiMAX World USA in Chicago this week. The companies will work together to make an end-to-end system using Alcatel-Lucent's Universal WiMAX platform and Kyocera multi-mode mobile phones, PC cards and USB devices. The end-to-end system will be ready during the first half of next year.

"We don't want to be a CPE vendor, but we want to strengthen the ecosystem for devices," said Michael Seymour, vice president of partnerships at Alcatel-Lucent's WiMAX Business Unit.
