AeroMACS in Demand with Presence at Aviation Events around the Globe


The WiMAX Forum to Host and Participate in Key Events in the Aviation Industry to Expand the Market


CLACKAMAS, OR - June 30, 2016 - The WiMAX Forum® is proud to announce an exciting line-up of four aviation-related events for the second half of the year that will expand the Aeronautical Mobile Airport Communication System (AeroMACS) market. Along with its member companies, the WiMAX Forum will present to broad yet targeted audiences to raise awareness about AeroMACS and share the latest developments for the technology, which include new deployments at airports, certification, security with PKI, and more.

AeroMACS, a Critical Wireless Technology in China
AeroMACS Track at Wireless China Industry Summit: The WiMAX Forum along with ADCC and Siemens will host a half-day seminar on September 8 collocated with Wireless China Industry Summit at JW Marriott Beijing Central, P.R. China. Additionally, Declan Byrne, WiMAX Forum President, will deliver a keynote address to the plenary on September 7. This is the third consecutive AeroMACS Track held by the WiMAX Forum, which has resulted in ADCC joining the Forum and deploying AeroMACS first at Chengdu Airport and now at Beijing Capital Airport. China remains an important market with us continuing to support ADCC and meet with the radio regulatory authorities to keep the market moving forward.

AeroMACS is a wireless broadband communications system for the airport surface based on the IEEE 802.16e standard, and the International Civil Aviation Organization (ICAO) has identified AeroMACS as a central technology for future aviation requirements in the Global Air Navigation Plan (GANP). Additionally, the Federal Aviation Administration (FAA) and EUROCONTROL have selected it as necessary to support air traffic control and management and increase the safety and regularity of flight. AeroMACS operates in the 5091-5150 MHz band for airport applications allocated by the ITU.
