WiMAX Backhaul for Wi-Fi: the New Motorola CPEi 775

motorola-cpei-775-wimax-wi-fi-modemIn another pre-CES release out early this morning, Motorola announced the new CPEi 775, a combination WiMAX modem and Wi-Fi router. It’s not designed for jumping back and forth between WiMAX and Wi-Fi (my first, and erroneous, assumption). It’s for using WiMAX as the backhaul for a Wi-Fi connection. Bottom line: this device acts as a regular Wi-Fi router for consumers, but doesn’t require a wired broadband connection. Plug it into an outlet in an area where WiMAX is available, and it starts working. Given that very few consumer devices have embedded WiMAX yet, the new modem creates an extremely useful interface with commonly available, Wi-Fi-enabled CE.

More details:

  • The Motorola CPEi 775 combines a “high performing WiMAX 802.16e modem with an integrated Wi-Fi 802.11 b/g router, VoIP ATA ports for voice calling, and an Ethernet port.”
  • It needs no external antennas
  • It’s “ultra thin” and comes in several colors (I’ll try to get pics in Vegas)
  • The Motorola CPEi 775 works on the 3.5 Ghz frequency (i.e. not in the US)
