MoqiZone, a digital entertainment delivery platform company that delivers last mile connectivity to internet cafes across China via its proprietary MoqiZone WiMAX network, has announced the installation of its first 802.16d base station using the 3.5GHz frequency band, in Suzhou. The new installation is the first step in the build-out of a private network for internet cafes to access MoqiZone games on its flagship B2C online game portal www.53mq.com. The MoqiZone network provides content delivery to the viral online gaming market and connects game players to online content providers utilising a national WiMAX network.
For MoqiZone’s initial roll-out of 700 internet cafes in Beijing, Chengdu, Tangshan, Shenzhen and Suzhou, the company has selected Axxcelera to provide the WiMAX equipment. MoqiZone plans to deploy the network in Shangdong, Yunnan, Hubei, Hunan, Guizhou and Guangxi over the next twelve months and the company expects to have a presence in a dozen cities, via approximately 12,000 internet cafes, within two years.
