Sprint and Samsung have declared that mobile WiMAX technology is now ready for commercial service. Sprint says that Samsung’s Mobile WiMAX infrastructure has passed the rigorous commercial acceptance criteria Sprint uses.

The performance criteria qualifies equipment on the overall performance, handoff procedure and handoff delay. Sprint says that the testing was conducted in its Xohm lab environment and with the commercial service network in the Baltimore and Washington D.C. area.

"This is a major step towards launch readiness and Sprint is extremely pleased with the performance of the mobile WiMAX network and access devices from Samsung," said Barry West, XOHM president. "The collaboration with Samsung and our other partners has created a WiMAX ecosystem that has now proven that it can deliver this new technology to the marketplace well ahead of any feasible alternative."
