Intel, PacNet Agree To Deploy Mobile WiMAX In Singapore

Intel and Pacific Internet Limited (PacNet), a large Asia-Pacific ISP, have teamed up to deploy a mobile WiMAX network in Singapore, PacNet said.

A memorandum of understanding (MOU) executed by the two companies, calls for them to initially test the technology to better understand market needs and behavior.

"This MOU represents a shift in the way PacNet will bring increased value to our customers," said Teck Moh Phey, PacNet's president and chief executive officer, in a statement. "Through strategic partnerships with leading technology companies such as Intel, PacNet will offer differentiated services by combining our strong regional knowledge and presence with next-generation products and solutions from these vendors. Such services will be offered to all applicable countries in the PacNet network."

PacNet said the trial with Intel will begin in mid-2006 and will test performance of both nomadic and mobile access.
