Russia based, Comstar has announced that its Armenian subsidiary,
Cornet-AM, an Internet services provider has built the first mobile
WiMAX network in the Republic of Armenia. The wireless broadband
network, based on the 802.16e standard, consists of 24 base stations
which are connected to each other via radio relay lines and rented
telecommunications channels. Airspan Networks has provided network
equipment.

The 3.6-3.8 GHz frequency range was allocated for the network on the
territory of 9 regions of the Republic of Armenia.

Comstar has also installed two Cisco supplied data transmission
nodes which will connect the network in Armenia to the main internet
channels.

Victor Koresh, Vice President of Comstar for Regional Development,
commented: "We have implemented the first part of our strategic project
aimed at expanding our presence in Armenia. The next step involves
the development of the voice services in the Republic. Earlier this
year, Cornet-AM applied to the Public Service Regulation Committee
of the Republic of Armenia to obtain the numbering capacity of 60,000
telephone numbers".
