usbw200The CPEi 725 is a desktop unit that provides fixed and nomadic access and also supports Voice over IP (VoIP) capability. The USBw 200 adaptor (dongle) enables broadband on the go.

Both feature two antennas and switched transmitter diversity.

With this capability the WiMAX CPEi 725 and USBw 200 WiMAX devices will automatically transmit on the antenna that is receiving the stronger signal, providing subscribers with a better connection to the network while allowing operators to reduce base station infrastructure requirements.

The CPEi 725, available in the 2.5GHz band, and the USBw 200, available for the 2.3, 2.5 and 3.5GHz bands, can be updated over-the-air.

Motorola’s CPEi 725 features a balanced blend of integrated design, data and voice access ports, high gain antennas to offer the best possible signal strength and a highly sensitive receiver that exceeds the WiMAX Forum’s specified receiver sensitivity requirements across all modulation schemes.

In addition, the CPEi 725 features a single Analog Terminal Adaptor voice port to streamline the subscriber experience when connecting voice equipment.

Both products initially will be available in Q4 of 2009.
