Kyocera Wireless has started developing mobile WiMAX consumer electronic devices powered by Runcom Technologies Ltd's WiMAX chipset.

Kyocera Corp. and Runcom Technologies Ltd worked closely over the last several months in the early development of multiple classes of mobile WiMAX terminals, such as PC cards, customer-premises equipment, residential gateways and others.

Runcom already supplies chips for wireless broadband access hardware for Korea Telecom's mobile WiMAX service, which uses terminals from Samsung. These devices are based on Runcom's RNA200 chip, supporting the IEEE 802.16e OFDMA standard and the WiBro profile.

According to Runcom, when paired with MIMO technology, WiMAX can deliver mobile services three to five times faster than today's 3G standards at a lower cost. A growing number of wireless service providers around the world are planning to use WiMAX's multi-media capabilities to complement existing cellular networks and service offerings.
