Cambodia to deploy its first WiMAX Rev-e network

Telco Chuan Wei (Cambodia) has chosen French communications giant Alcatel-Lucent to deploy Cambodia's first nationwide WiMAX Rev-e network by mid-2009.

Chuan Wei president Alan Khov said, "We are counting on the Alcatel-Lucent solution to meet its target of serving one million subscribers, roughly 80 per cent of the country's business and enterprise population, within two years of launch. Alcatel-Lucent is providing a complete turnkey solution for WiMAX (Worldwide Interoperability for Microwave Access), including integration, design, installation, commissioning, and maintenance services."

"As the first provider to deploy a nation-wide WiMAX Rev-e network in Cambodia, Chuan Wei is helping shape the future of communications in the region" said Khov. "The network will provide significant infrastructural support to Cambodia's economic growth, improving communications for local businesses and multinationals."

"It will support high-quality voice telephony in addition to broadband access, thanks to the end-to-end quality of service features built into the Alcatel-Lucent solution," he said.

Part of the Thai Boon Roong conglomerate, Chuan Wei was awarded the sole license to operate the only nationwide WiMAX mobility network in Cambodia. The company is focused on delivering state-of-the-art WiMAX wireless broadband infrastructure for Cambodian society.

High growth economies want WiMAX

Alcatel-Lucent wireless networks activities president, Mike Iandolo said that in December 2008, Alcatel-Lucent said that it was refocusing its WiMAX R&D efforts on the technology's dominant market opportunity, enhanced wireless DSL (digital subscriber line)--which includes data-centric mobility usage on netbooks and Mobile Internet Devices (MIDs) as well as residential and nomadic PC use.

"This large-scale contract win with Chuan Wei highlights Alcatel-Lucent's refocused strategy to WiMAX as the wireless-broadband solution for fixed, nomadic and data-centric mobility needs," said Iandolo. "Driven to a large degree by demand in high-growth economies like Cambodia, we see the 'enhanced wireless DSL' market growing strongly over the next five-plus years worldwide with close to 90 per cent of WiMAX Rev-e subscribers by 2013, and we are focused on building on our leadership in this space."
