NextWave Wireless Inc, a global provider of mobile multimedia and wireless broadband technologies, announced that it has clinched a strategic deal with Alcatel-Lucent to develop advanced WiMAX broadcast solutions for mobile operators worldwide.
According to the agreement, Alcatel Lucent will integrate NextWave’s recently announced MXtv technology into its WiMAX solutions portfolio. NextWave wants to offer WiMAX operators with the option to deliver mobile TV and audio over their network - much like MobiTV does with other carriers.
“We are thrilled by the opportunity to collaborate with Alcatel-Lucent to develop new and highly advanced mobile multimedia offerings on their advanced WiMAX platform,” said Allen Salmasi, CEO of NextWave Wireless.
“User demand for mobile broadcast services is rapidly expanding and we believe that the exciting new applications offered through this alliance will provide mobile operators a unique ability to deliver the key differentiating feature of 4G networks, rich media content such as live television, movies and music on-demand, real-time video streaming and conferencing, radio, multi-player gaming and many other interactive streaming applications to mobile devices - anywhere, anytime,” Salmasi added.
