Airspan Networks, Inc. (AIRN) Chosen to Establish WiMAX Network in Okinawa, Japan

Airspan Networks announced today that Okinawa Telemessage Co. Ltd., a leading broadband access service provider in Okinawa, Japan, launched a WiMAX Network using their solutions to capitalize on the fast-growing demand for high-quality broadband services. According to the press release, Airspan’s solution was chosen for its flexibility, frequency band availability and the inherent cost-savings offered by wireless-based broadband infrastructure.

Okinawa Telemessage plans on providing more than a half a million households in Okinawa Prefecture with high-speed broadband access. The WiMAX network deployment is well underway and once completed will consist of over two hundred Airspan base stations placed throughout Okinawa Island. Nanjo City provided Okinawa Telemessage with roof-top property for placement of base stations, as well as city-owned fiber optic backhauling.

Fumikatu Miyagi, President and CEO of Okinawa Telemessage Co. commented, “A robust and reliable infrastructure solution is needed in an island-wide deployment such as this. Airspan solutions have exceeded our expectations and will help us meet our goals in expanding broadband services to the entire Okinawa Prefecture.”

“As we expand our presence in Asia Pacific, we welcome this opportunity in Okinawa,” said Henrik Smith-Petersen, Airspan’s President of Asia Pacific. “Our WiMAX solutions provide top-quality data services and we are happy to play a part in bringing broadband to the residents of the island.”
