Airnet Deploys WIMAX Networks

Airnet NZ Ltd, Hawke’s Bay leading wireless Internet Service Provider yesterday began deploying WiMAX technology throughout its local network.

Airnet breaks new ground in the New Zealand communications industry as they work with Intel to deploy one of the country’s first WiMAX networks.

WiMAX is a standards-based wireless technology that provides high-throughput broadband connections over long distances. WiMAX doesn’t require line-of-sight to provide broadband wireless Internet access.

Airnet is one of around twenty carriers worldwide who are collaborating with Intel to deploy the WiMAX technology.

“The industry momentum behind WiMAX is remarkable and to have innovators like Airnet working to bring its benefits to rural New Zealand is very encouraging” said Philip Cronin, general manager, Intel Australia and New Zealand. “Standards-based wireless broadband helps enable technologies which facilitate better education, healthcare, agricultural productivity and incomes while improving small businesses and eGovernment access”.

Airnet’s CEO Cecil Averill said “WiMAX will enable us to provide a communication service that requires less infrastructure to reach more customers. As the world goes wireless, WiMAX provides the best technology to offer customers greater access and innovative services. For example, Airnet will be able to provide customers with added value by combining Voice and more robust Internet services in attractively priced packages.”
