Icosnet launches WiMAX

11 Jun 2008

WiMAX equipment supplier Aperto Networks has announced that it has deployed a wireless broadband network for the Algerian ISP Icosnet. The network incorporates Aperto’s PacketMAX 5000 WiMAX base stations, with the vendor also supplying its PacketMAX 100 subscriber unit. Icosnet is targeting its new WiMAX service at corporate customers, with an emphasis on the financial and energy sectors. ‘Speed of deployment was crucial to our success,’ said Andrew Kinnear, CEO of Icosnet. ‘We were upgrading an older wireless network to WiMAX and wanted to avoid having to reapply for spectrum.’
