Alvarion said it is making a micro base station for its BreezeMax platform: These base stations are designed essentially to deliver less capacity because they serve areas that are sparsely populated. The base stations will operate in the 3.5 GHz band and are designed to be WiMax compliant.
In January, Cambridge Broadband introduced a pico-base station, also based on WiMax. The pico base stations are designed for areas with a dense user base. They cover a smaller area, thus allowing a smaller number of people to share the available bandwidth.
It is encouraging to see these different types of base stations hitting the market. Operators will have a range of products that they can use in order to build a network optimized to their users.
