Taiwan-based network equipment maker Gemtek Technology has begun shipping its in-house developed portable WiMAX/Wi-Fi routers to the US market, according to the company.
Shipments of Gemtek's portable WiMAX/Wi-Fi devices came coincidentally with the launch of the 3G/4G Overdrive wireless router by US-based Sprint Nextel, the sources pointed out. The Overdrive router is made by Sierra Wireless.
The availability of the Overdrive routers and Gemtek's WiMAX/Wi-Fi routers will help global WiMAX network operators to expand their services, the sources commented.
