Agni to roll out Dhaka WiMAX network based on Motorola system

6 Dec 2006

ISP Agni Systems has begun a phased deployment of WiMAX technology, supplied by Motorola, to provide wireless broadband access in Bangladesh’s capital Dhaka, and plans to roll out the service gradually to other cities. Commercial services are expected to start in January 2007 and the entire network is expected to be completed by mid-2008. Phase one of the deployment will be a fixed outdoor solution using Motorola’s Access Point (AP) 100 series system. Phase two, expected to start in the third quarter of 2007, will involve an upgrade to an 802.16-2005 mobile WiMAX system using Motorola’s WiMAX Access Point (WAP) 400 series system.
