Siemens Communications and Belarusian state mobile operator BeST have signed a memorandum of understanding (MoU) for the delivery of the Wimax communications solution.
The broadband radio network is part of a new initiative in Belarus designed to provide large parts of the population with internet access. In addition, the Belarusian government wants to use the Wimax network for an innovative telemetering solution with which all household consumption data for electricity, gas and water will be transmitted over the air to a central billing system. The network and the remote wireless meter reading system are scheduled to go live at the end of 2005.
In addition to the network infrastructure on the basis of its SkyMAX products, Siemens will deliver equipment capable of recording and transmitting the necessary measurement data.
