Quanta Computer, one of Taiwan’s leading ODMs, said Monday that it would bring to market several mobile WiMAX cards and dongles this quarter.
The PC Cards, ExpressCards, and dongles will use the Beceem BCS200 chipset, the companies announced. Specific pricing and product information was not disclosed.
What is significant, however, is the fact that Taiwan’s ODM community is now apparently jumping on the WiMAX bandwagon. The addition of Taiwan’s ODMs to a market is seen by manufacturers as both a positive and negative influence; while the ODMs undoubtedly mainstream a technology, they also tend to drive down margins. Both trends benefit consumers, however.
“Beceem is one of the Mobile WiMAX chipset leaders,” said Frank Jiang, President at Quanta Microsystems, Inc. (QMI), which is a subsidiary of Quanta Computer focusing on the development of wireless communications devices, in a statement. “Beceem’s products excel at field-proven performance and provide the level of maturity and functionality that QMI and its customers expect when entering a new market like Mobile WiMAX. In addition, working with Beceem ensures that our products can be launched in most WiMAX networks around the world, since Beceem is collaborating with all major WiMAX infrastructure OEMs to assure the interoperability of their chipset.”
