AB-MAX consists of fixed broadband wireless access equipment (Access Point and CPE) for Internet, data, multimedia, video, voice, and other emerging IP based applications. Combining WiMAX with higher level network features, AB-MAX provides a robust, cost-effective alternative to wired alternatives such as T1/E1, DSL and cable modems.

Reasons to Buy AB-MAX

AB-MAX offers service providers a true, standards based NLOS platform that helps improved cell range and penetration compared with proprietary single carrier solutions. It also supports Quality of Service (QoS) features like CIR and PIR along with advanced scheduling services like best efforts service, real time polling and UGS services. This allows a service provider to offer different classes of service to different end customers. AB-MAX supports numerous topologies including Ethernet routing and bridging. Deployments may use frequencies from the entire U-NII 5GHz ISM and ETSI spectrum. Select from various modulation options and antenna polarizations, all in an extremely low cost, easy to deploy product.

Key Features

  • WiMAX Compliant (802.16d), NLOS, Point-to-Multipoint system
  • FCC and CE approved for U-NII and ISM bands
  • Supports 5.47 - 5.85 GHz operation on a single platform
  • QoS Support (CIR, PIR)
  • Programmable dual-polarity Access Point antennas
  • Dynamic Frequency Selection (DFS)
  • Integrated GPS synchronization


  • Improved cell penetration and range
  • Improved cell throughput (Up to 64QAM modulation)
