WiMAX Forum announces North American certification lab

The WiMAX Forum said last week that the first North America-based certification test lab would come online in October.

Established and operated by AT4 wireless, the lab will be located in Virginia. It will become one of five test labs for WiMAX Forum Certified products worldwide.

The lab will initially be staffed by up to 30 employees and conduct WiMAX Forum certification testing and radiated performance testing (RPT). AT4 wireless has the responsibility to develop and replicate the certification test beds to match other test beds globally so interoperability for all WiMAX Forum Certified devices is assured. WiMAX Forum members in the Americas may submit devices for certification at the Virginia facility in October.

WiMAX may one day be used regularly in the field to supplement existing ENG transmission of video news files to local newsrooms.

The WiMAX Forum plans to have five certification test labs located in the U.S., Europe, China, Korea and Taiwan by the end of this year.
