Motorola, Sprint Team Up For WiMax Test

Motorola and Sprint have entered into an agreement to deploy WiMax mobile (802.16e) test networks in 2005 and 2006. The companies expect this partnership to serve as test bed, to work the kinks out of WiMax mobile deployments for themselves as well as other companies once the standard is ratified later this year. Sprint has been making a major commitment to WiMax mobile, recently announcing an equipment partnership with Intel as well. One reason for the interest could be that when Sprint and Nextel merge, they will have 2.5 GHz spectrum (the band WiMax works in) covering 80% of the US population. Nextel recently announced they will be testing a competing wireless broadband technology, UMTS-TDD, in the same 2.5 GHz spectrum in Washington, DC.
