Commercially available since mid 2004, deployed by over 150 operators in more than 30 countries, BreezeMAX is the most advanced, field proven commercial WiMAX solution and the first to offer CPE powered with Intel PRO/Wireless 5116 broadband interface WiMAX chip.


Built from the ground up based on the IEEE 802.16-2004 standard, BreezeMAX supports fixed, nomadic and portable services with a clear path for the emerging WiMAX mobile industry based on the IEEE 802.16e standard. BreezeMAX is designed for a variety of frequencies in both licensed and license-exempt bands from 2GHz to 6GHz spectrum, and operates in both FDD and TDD duplex modes.


The system, with excellent sensitivity and market leading OFDM radio technology, is robust to operate in adverse channel conditions and non-line-of-sight links. With high power radios that support diversity and smart antenna techniques, BreezeMAX enables the use of indoor self-install CPEs in both dense urban and suburban environments.


BreezeMAX CPEs are powered by Intel’s PRO/Wireless 5116 broadband interface chip and deliver broadband access services to a wide range of customers, including residential, SOHO, SME, large enterprise and multi-tenant customers.

BreezeMAX Macro Base Station_0606  

BreezeMAX Macro Base Station

The macro base station is an 8U high cPCI shelf that fits in standard 19” or ETSI racks. The base station contains a network and radio modules, power supply and power feeding modules. All the modules are hot swappable and high availability can be provided through multiple redundancy schemes. Support for smart antenna techniques, including space time coding (STC), polarization diversity and maximum ratio combining (MRC) together with high power radios enable the operation of indoor self-install CPEs in dense urban and suburban environments.
BreezeMAX Micro Base Station_0606  

BreezeMAX Micro Base Station

The micro base station is ideal for operators needing a cost effective, scalable WiMAX-ready base station solution for maximum return from their network deployment, especially targeted for low-density or rural areas.It is comprised of a stand-alone module (1U high 19”) that connects to the same outdoor radio unit as the macro base station radio.With this common connection, operators have the ability to mix and match base station types according to deployment needs while enjoying the same feature set, provisioning and management functionality in both base stations. 

Customer Premises Equipment:
