WiMAX base stations to run Linux

Filed under
Linux

PureWave Networks is using Linux, a Freescale processor, and an off-the-shelf middleware package from Enea to create its next generation of WiMAX base stations. Due later this year, the base stations will aim to bridge the gap between macro and pico WiMAX stations, says the company.

The PureWave WiMAX/LTE base stations will combine the functionality of a traditional macro base station with the small footprint and lower pricing of pico base stations, claims PureWave. Designed for outdoor installations, the base stations will be mountable on towers, poles, or walls, says the company.

The base stations are said to incorporate adaptive beamforming technology that optimizes spectral efficiency, data throughput, and range. Beamforming is a signal processing technique used by sensor arrays to offer directional signal transmission or reception, and adaptive beamforming is said to better adapt to different transmission conditions.
