JRC and Runcom completed the development of Mobile WiMAX Base Station and User Terminal of FFT size (2K) and bandwidth (20MHz)

Orlando, March 27th, 2007 — Japan Radio Company (JRC) (Tokyo: TSE No.6751) and Runcom Technologies, Ltd, the leading OFDMA chipset manufacturer, completed recently the development of Mobile WiMAX Base Station equipment and User Terminals based on advanced version of IEEE802.16e-2005 Standard utilizing the highest FFT size (2K) and bandwidth (20MHz) defined in the Standard. The equipment operating at 2.5GHz achieved a record throughput of 30 megabits per second.

Runcom and JRC demonstrated today at the CTIA Conference (March 27-29, 2007 in Orlando) the highest throughput ever achieved over Mobile WiMAX networks.

The User Terminals and Base stations developed by JRC are based on Runcom's unique OFDMA silicon technology embedded into the RNA200 ASIC and RNF2000 FPGA solution respectively.

" By running a High Definition TV application over a Mobile WiMAX Network enabled us to demonstrate the fantastic potential of Mobile WiMAX as a Broadband Access Technology " said Israel Koffman, Runcom’s VP of Marketing; “The collaboration with a leading company in Radio technology such as JRC enabled the team to bring OFDMA technology to perform one of its highest records.”

Dr Fumio Murakami, General Manager of WiMAX Project at JRC noted: “Japan, as a Sophisticated Communications Markets is expecting superior performance from the WiMAX networks to compete with the existing broadband wireless networks in the country; The collaboration with a pioneer in OFDMA technology such as Runcom supported JRC in its plan to demonstrate such performance to the leading operators in Japan.”
