Germany recently awarded 450 MHz spectrum to Deutsche Telekom and Inquam: Any country that opens up or awards new 450 MHz spectrum presents an opportunity for Flarion, Ronny Harldsvik, a Flarion spokesman, said via email. The spectrum is ideal for CDMA DO or Flarion’s FLASH-OFDM, he said. Flarion is working with Siemens on developing the 450 MHz gear.
T-Mobile’s venture arm is a Flarion shareholder and T-Mobile is trialing Flarion’s technology in the Netherlands.
It’s quite interesting that Flarion and other proprietary technology vendors are getting attention in Europe, because European operators, historically, have been very adamant about only supporting worldwide standards, such as GSM. But in competitive markets where the demand for broadband is real, perhaps operators are beginning to open up to other ideas.
