INTERNET BUSINESS NEWS-(C)1995-2007 M2 COMMUNICATIONS LTD

US wireless system operator Horizon Wi-Com has revealed it is trialling its high-speed wireless broadband service in US cities in the northeast region, using 802.16e compatible equipment from Navini Networks, a broadband wireless access solutions provider.

Horizon Wi-Com, which bought the WCS A Block spectrum owned previously by Verizon, said phase 1 of the deployment will introduce service in Washington DC, Boston, New York, Philadelphia, Pittsburgh, Buffalo, Baltimore, Richmond, and Cincinnati. It confirmed it is trialling subscribers and will provide high-speed Internet access to residential and business users in markets which incorporate around 70m POPs.

According to Navini Networks, its software upgrade to Mobile WiMAX will enable Horizon Wi-Com to introduce the first network deployment in cities in the US. The deployment includes the Ripwave MX8 platform from Navini Networks, which is being certified for 802.16e mobile WiMAX with the company's Smart WiMAX solution, which combines beamformed MIMO and Smart Beamforming technology.

Networks are live and serving customers in the cities covered by the licences, with full commercial launch to commence once Navini Networks has completed WiMAX Forum Wave 2 certification.
