Deutsche Telekom subsidiary T-Com will deploy a fixed broadband wireless network in the middle of the year: The first pilots will take place in Siegburg and Rheinbach. T-Com has already tested the WiMax-like technology in its lab and will be deploying the network as part of a €250 million investment in its network. The vendor has not been revealed, although speculation surrounds Alvarion.
Deutsche Telekom appears to be quite aggressive in trying out new technologies. In addition to this trial, it is trialing equipment from Flarion, in which it also invests, in the Netherlands. Deutsche Telekom also has licenses in the 450 MHz band in Germany and speculation has it that the operator may deploy Flarion’s equipment there. It’s quite a variety of networks for the operator and it’s not entirely clear how they all may ultimately work together.
