POSDATA to Employ Azimuth Systems' ACE™ 400WB Channel Emulator for Testing of Its FLYVO Mobile WiMAX Product Line

Leading Korean Telecommunications Technology Provider Partners With Wireless Channel Emulation Expert

ACTON, MA--(Marketwire - October 14, 2008) - Azimuth Systems, Inc., a leading provider of wireless broadband test equipment and channel emulators for Wi-Fi, WiMAX, LTE and 2G/3G cellular technologies, today announced that POSDATA has selected the ACE™ 400WB WiMAX channel emulator for testing of its FLYVO Mobile WiMAX brand. By accurately emulating multi-antenna multipath characteristics with channel correlation, the ACE 400WB determines the effect of real-world RF interactions to enable accurate testing of MIMO broadband wireless communications.

Based on its OFDMA and TDD source technologies, POSDATA's FLYVO Mobile WiMAX brand consists of three core products: a radio access station, access control station and element management system. By employing the ACE 400WB, POSDATA aims to dramatically streamline the testing process of the entire FLYVO product line in order to advance its goal of achieving free and unrestricted communications.

"As Korea was one of the first nations to pursue the commercialization of Mobile WiMAX, it's fitting that POSDATA has risen to become a major player in the space," said Jaehyeong Kim, director of POSDATA. "Azimuth's ACE 400WB provides us with the enhanced capabilities required to effectively test our FLYVO brand, helping us to deliver mobile WiMAX products that are enabling ubiquitous high-speed voice, video and data services without the limitations of time and space."

The ACE 400WB is a fully-featured channel emulator that performs real-time emulation of over-the-air conditions with the industry's highest RF fidelity for error free testing, ensuring that introduced channel fading is as close to the real world as possible. Azimuth's sophisticated family of channel emulators, including the world-class ACE 400WB, feature the advanced channel modeling capabilities required for MIMO broadband wireless communications testing.

"Highly-accurate channel emulation testing is essential in characterizing the effect of multi-channel RF interactions on the conformance, performance and interoperability of MIMO-based Mobile WiMAX systems," said George Reed, vice president of marketing and product management at Azimuth Systems. "Azimuth has leveraged its considerable experience in wireless test to create the industry's only MIMO-optimized channel emulator, providing customers like POSDATA who are on the cutting-edge of technology with a means to efficiently and reliably perform real-world testing of next-generation mobile WiMAX products in a convenient, controlled laboratory setting."
