AirWalk Communications Debuts the Most Compact and Versatile CDMA Radio Access Networks

AW100 from AirWalk CommunicationsAirWalk Communications Debuts the Most Compact and Versatile CDMA Radio Access Networks

RICHARDSON, Texas, September 10, 2009 – AirWalk Communications, the innovator in IP-based CDMA cellular radio network equipment, today introduced the most compact, high-performance, single-sector radio access networks available, the AW100 series.

The new AW100 series is an integrated radio and controller which offers full 3GPP2 performance in a compact 1RU form factor. This affordable, omni directional solution extends cellular service to new market segments with advanced applications.

The AW100’s market focus ranges from low RF coverage and high traffic density locations to wide-open rural environments. In addition, the AW100 can be rapidly deployed in developing nations as a wireless local loop (WLL) service at nominal cost.

“The driving force behind the development of the AW100 family of products was to expand on the concept of bringing broadband to under-developed wireless towns and villages,” said Serge Pequeux, President and CEO of AirWalk Communications. “At the same time these products offer wireless operators an affordable access point to complement macro networks with in-building coverage.”

Specifically, the standards-based product line is available as an individual 200mW picocell, a 4W minicell, or 20W macrocell with an external amplifier. The AW100 product offerings include either 32 or 64 channel elements in 1xRTT or 192 channel elements in 1xEV-DO Rev. A configuration.

The AW100 series complements the existing AirWalk product lines. AirWalk will continue to offer the OneRAN industrial-grade three-sector products, as well as the EdgePoint and EdgePoint PRO for consumer and enterprise femtocell solutions.

AirWalk has already received orders for the AW100 product family from U.S.-based service provider customers, Pequeux noted. The products will begin shipping in October 2009.
