The Networks business of Motorola has announced the expansion of its portfolio of WiMAX devices and customer premises equipment (CPE) with the addition of the CPEi 800 and the CPEi 885.
The CPEi 800 meets the diverse needs of operators and their subscribers for a high-performance, data-only modem while the CPEi 885 provides capability and functionality to support the increased demand for home-networking needs, including digital entertainment and high-speed broadband access.

Motorola’s CPEi 800, offered in all bands, is a basic, low-cost data-only wireless modem for fast market entry into low teledensity markets or markets where operators are otherwise challenged to deliver high-speed Internet access. The compact CPEi 800 requires no installation and connects the subscriber to high-speed access in seconds. Its fully internal antennas are optimized for high orientation gain, with easy-to-read signal strength indicators. Availability of the CPEi 800 is planned for August 2010.

The CPEi 885 is a step forward from the widely deployed CPEi 775 and is built on the fourth-generation common platform used throughout Motorola’s CPE portfolio. It is Motorola’s first fully-integrated CPE that supports WiMAX and WiFi b/g/n.
The CPEi 885, initially offered in the 3.5GHz band, is a multiple port data, voice over IP (VoIP) and high-end WiFi (b/g/n and 2x2n) device that incorporates a 2.4GHz WiFi 2x2n router. This model also supports WiFi protected setup which today is only available on high-end WiFi routers. It features one data and two ATA ports, making it possible for subscribers to enjoy an integrated 4G service experience. The CPEi 885 is scheduled for availability in Q4 2010.

The launch of the CPEi 800 (data only) and CPEi 885 (data, voice and WiFi) – together with the earlier launch of the CPEi 825 (data and VoiP) – complete Motorola’s new 800 Series family of WiMAX CPE products.
