Wavesat is partnering with Japan's Willcom to develop mobile solutions running on the latter's XG-PHS broadband network.
XG-PHS is an OFDMA standard providing advanced network services and enhanced data speeds. It will be initially deployed in Japan by Willcom.
The partnership leverages on Wavesat's Odyssey 8500 multimode 4G chipset, which supports multiple protocols XG-PHS, Wimax Wave2, WiFi and LTE.
Wavesat said it will work closely with Willcom and selected solution partners to adapt its chipset to support XG-PHS-based applications in end-users devices for the Japanese market.
