Introduction of WiMAX Gateway and USB card by OKI
Based on newly introduced WiMAX mobile broadband services by UQ Communications Inc. in Japan, OKI has introduced a newly developed WiMAX gateway with routing functionality. The newly developed gateway set will satisfy the UQ’s gateway based services allowing customers to use the UQ WiMAX services at the convenience of their home through WiFi by connecting to WiMAX network and at the same time use the WiMAX USB type UD01OK dongle for outside of home use. The WiMAX WiFi Gateway UG010K which OKI refers to it by WiWiGW has WiFi conversion functionality allowing PCs and other WiFi enabled devices such as mobile gaming devices to be connected to WiMAX network. The newly developed set will be sold through the newly WiMAX MVNO partners such as NEC’s Biglobe as of July 1st, 2009.
