Devens, MA - Dec 16, 2008 - Comrex has completed preliminary testing of the new Xohm Wimax network using its Access stereo BRIC IP codec. The testing was conducted in the greater Boston area with Xohm hardware supplied by Sprint Nextel.
Tom Hartnett, Technical Director of Comrex, comments, "For quite some time, we had been aware of the potential benefits that Wimax technology would offer for our customers. The promise of 2 to 4Mb/s download and 0.5 to 1.5Mb/s uploads in a mobile format would give Access users a great data platform for transmission of live broadcast content."
Hartnett has chronicled his Xohm testing in a report posted at http://remotes.comrex.com.
Xohm is currently available in Baltimore, MD, and will be available in other select US markets.
