While it hasn't come quick nor easy, it looks like more and more vendors are jumping on
the WiMAX train, and just a day after Horizon chose Navini
to get its WiMAX on, Texas Instruments
, ORZA Networks, and Sun Create Electronics are becoming some of the first to receive shipments of Fujitsu
's chip. The 5.8GHz WiMAX baseband system-on-chip (SoC) is dubbed the "industry's first" to become commercially available, and while it supports frequencies ranging from 2GHz to 11GHz in both licensed and unlicensed bands, its also "being used in the industry's first commercially available fixed WiMAX CPE supporting the 5.8GHz band." Of course, these all-in-one chips are being marketed and sold specifically to ODMs, but chances are it'll have something to do with your connection to WiMAX
if Fujitsu has anything to do with it.
