Broadband: India - Motorola in talks to offer WiMax

Global communications giant Motorola is currently engaged in talks with all major telecom service providers (including the state owned units) in the country to offer its WiMAX platform.


“We are conducting trail runs with the six major telecom operators in India, both CDMA and GSM, to offer ‘Canopy’ broadband services. We expect service providers to extend this WiMAX to customers by October," Dennis Stipati, director, international sales, Motorola’s canopy, wireless broadband products, told Business Standard. Indian telecom operators are currently undertaking test runs of Canopy’s WiMAX product.

Motorola has placed India amongst the four ‘top target markets’ along with the United States, China and Western Europe for setting up wireless broadband infrastructure for telecom operators.
