WiNetworks Closed down January, 2014


WiNetworks, Inc. engages in the development and integration of WiMAX network technologies. The company provides Win-Max systems that offer a range of products, including compact base stations, customer premise equipment, and relay stations. It also offers multi-service gateways that integrate with home wiring, which include telephone and coax lines, power lines, and wireless. The company serves broadband wireless access providers, and residential and small office/home office end-users. WiNetworks, Inc. was founded in 2002 and is based in New York, New York with regional offices in the United States, Europe, and Asia.

WiNetworks designed its Win-Max products using a SoC based approach to achieve the smallest, best price Compact and Pico base station in the market today. These base stations are designed for quick and easy installations, using all outdoor fixtures for installations on walls, poles, and buildings.

WiN1010 Data Adapter

The WiN1010 is a combined data and power adapter that interfaces to the customer’s Outdoor Unit wireless modem. The WiN1010 unit provides RJ-45 input connectors that include 10/100Base-T transformers for connection to an IEEE802.3 (10/100Base-T) compatible device. The unit receives power from 100V to 240V AC using an industry standard connector. A single output RJ-45 connector provides 10/100 Base-T data and 55V to the outdoor unit.

WiN1010 is designed to complement Win-Max Broadband Wireless Access systems, allowing support of multiple customer types over the same infrastructure. The WiN1010 unit connects to WiNetworks IEEE802.16d and IEEE802.16e WiMAX-based outdoor units over a CAT5 cable. This cable serves the bi-directional transfer of data and signaling as well as a power feed to the outdoor equipment.

WiN3000 Wireless Backhauling system

The WiNetworks WiN3000 Wireless Backhauling system is a member of the Win-Max E family, a line of WiMAX Broadband Wireless Access systems based on the 802.16e mobile WiMAX standard. The WiN3000 is an integrated backhaul solution for WiMAX backhaul for the Compact and Pico Base Station (WiN7000, WiN7200) providing an affordable, cost effective alternative to wireline solutions.
The WiNetworks Wireless Backhauling systems, WiN3000 and WiN3200, are backhaul systems for the Win-Max E family, a product line of WiMAX Broadband Wireless Access systems based on the 802.16e mobile WiMAX standard. The WiN3000 and WiN3200 providing an affordable, cost effective alternative to wireline solutions by connecting to the Win-Max Compact and Pico Base Stations (WiN7000, WiN7200).
WiN3000 and WiN3200 provide WiMAX backhaul by connecting the base stations to the core network via a broadband wireless link. Both systems are equipped with an integrated antenna, and an option for external antennas for longer deployment ranges. Carrier grade performance ensures high reliability and robust performance for network operators requiring a wireless backhaul solution.

The WiN3000 provides high capacity connectivity of up to 36Mbps at ranges of tens of kilometers. The WiN3000 provides a multi point-to-point aggregation of base station traffic to a single point on the operator’s network. WiN3000 delivers all internet traffic, including voice, video and data, with over-the-air security ensuring data confidentiality. The WiN3200 extended range provides connectivity of up to 120km eliminating extra towers and links. This superior model employs MIMO technology for increased link robustness and resistance to interference. The WiN3200 delivers high output power of 25dBm with high performance 100Mbps throughput.

The Win-Max Backhaul systems are simple to install and use the same infrastructure (pole, tower or wall) as the Compact and Pico base station. The power is supplied with a PoE connection from the base station, eliminating additional cables and power lines. The complete integration of the system and the unified installation allows for a low cost, quick and effective WiMAX backhaul solution.
