Green Packet Partners Beceem to Introduce New High-Performance WiMAX Dongles

Petaling Jaya, Malaysia (PressExposure) June 02, 2009 -- Green Packet, a leading developer of next generation mobile broadband and networking solutions and Beceem Communications, a leading developer of Mobile WiMAX chips, are forming a strategic partnership to introduce a portfolio of high-performance WiMAX USB dongles for the global WiMAX market.

Steadfast in its commitment to enhance its products and services while providing better end-user experiences, Green Packet has based its UM350 USB dongle on Beceem’s BCSM250 single chip solution. Beceem is a leading contributor to the rapid growth of the WiMAX ecosystem, and has set themselves as the enabler of high quality chipsets at very reasonable price points.

“We are committed to offering a USB modem portfolio that maximizes user performance at the most competitive price,” said Kelvin Lee, Senior General Manager of Green Packet Berhad. “Our partnership with Beceem will see us further enhancing our range of products to deliver ease of use, mobility and low power consumption.”

The collaboration will begin with Green Packet’s 3.5GHz USB dongles, extending into the development for the 2.3GHz and 2.5GHz spectrum to meet Green Packet’s client demand worldwide.

“Green Packet is fast emerging as one of the leading OEMs for wireless broadband products,” said Babu Mandava, CEO of Beceem. “Having been chosen by Green Packet underscores the fact that performance of the product is an important ingredient of success in WiMAX, and we look forward to our close collaboration with Green Packet which has the global reach to deliver products anywhere.”

In a show of strength, Green Packet will be demonstrating seamless mobility using its two top selling solutions; the UM350 USB dongle and Intouch Connection Management Platform (ICMP) on Worldmax’s commercial 3.5GHz network at the WiMAX Forum Global Congress in Amsterdam (WFGC-Amsterdam). This showcase will demonstrate session persistence as well as illustrate uninterrupted connection and application usage as the user moves between WiMAX and Wi-Fi. The WFGC-Amsterdam event takes place from 2 to 3 June 2009.

Green Packet’s ICMP is the industry’s leading intelligent connection management solution, offering operators an end-to-end solution designed to converge connection management, communication services and entertainment within a single client. It is designed to simplify and enrich the connectivity experience of users while giving operators the opportunity to increase ARPU (Average Revenue Per User).

Green Packet is uniquely differentiated in the international WiMAX space as the company not only innovates WiMAX products and solutions but has the capability to field test its innovation for customer relevance on one of the world largest LIVE network through Green Packet’s subsidiary and WiMAX operator arm Packet One Networks (Malaysia) Sdn Bhd or “P1”in Malaysia. It is this end-to-end business model that sees both established industry players and new operators in emerging markets turn to Green Packet to enable shorter time to market traction and enhanced services which translates to increased ARPU and faster returns on investments.

Green Packet is fully committed to advancing the WiMAX business and technology globally, and is well on its way with regional offices and R&D centres in USA, China, and Malaysia; as well as offices in Singapore, Thailand, Bahrain, Taiwan, and Australia.
