Briefs: Korea, Canada team on WiBro mobile tech

Jan 10, 2006

South Korea Telecom and a Canadian firm have joined forces to develop technology that will be used in the next generation of mobile devices.

SK Telecom and Montreal's Wavesat will be working on WiFi and WiBro/OFDMA system tools and a development kit that will soon bring full wireless broadband service to motor vehicles.

WiBro 802.16e S-OFDMA (orthogonal frequency division multiple access) is the Korean WiMax profile compatible with the 802.16e profile WiMax standard.

"The resulting WiBro products will accelerate the delivery of WiMax full mobility infrastructure, in South Korea and worldwide," said Wavesat CEO Michel Guay.
