WIMAX : WIMAX Forum selects testing lab

The WiMAX Forum™ has selected its standardization test lab and announces a certification roadmap that marks July 2005 for the launch of the WiMAX Forum Certified™ program.


The selection of Cetecom is the culmination of a rigorous 12-month review process by the WiMAX Forum. Cetecom was chosen for its extensive range of testing and compliance services, which includes experience in wireless technologies such as GSM/GPRS, EDGE, W-CDMA, Wi-Fi® and Bluetooth®. Headquartered in Spain, Cetecom has affiliate regional labs which will allow WiMAX Forum members worldwide to easily access the testing facilities.

“Cetecom Spain is proud to have been selected by the WiMAX Forum as the official certification lab for WiMAX products," said Fernando Hardasmal, Cetecom Spain’s deputy general manager. “We are working diligently with the WiMAX Forum to implement the test profiles for IEEE 802.16-2004 so that we can begin accepting vendor equipment in July."
