BelAir said that later this year it will start offering its mesh platform that includes backhaul radios based on WiMax: The system will use Wi-Fi to distribute coverage and WiMax to backhaul the access. If WiMax does become built into mobile clients, BelAir will develop its system to accommodate for WiMax access radios. The press release also says that the platform will also support cellular, but there isn’t much detail about which cellular technologies exactly it would support.
I spoke with an executive from Alcatel recently for a story I wrote for Wireless Week about HSDPA and learned that Alcatel will sell base stations that can support GSM, EDGE, UMTS, HSDPA, and WiMax.
BelAir also said that it joined the WiMax Forum. The company has hinted historically that it would integrate WiMax into its platform if it seemed to make sense.
