Airspan Networks and picoChip completed WiMAX Forum certification of Airspan's MacroMAX basestation for the 3.5GHz FDD profile. The MacroMAX is powered by picoChip's software-upgradable architecture, as are Airspan's HiperMAX and MicroMAX-SDR basestation models. The latter two are expected to achieve certified status during 2006. All three products can support both 256 OFDM and SOFDMA PHYs. According to Airspan, it's the first vendor to complete certification of an end-to-end WiMAX system for the mainstream 3.5GHz FDD market.
