Wimax Getting Closer in Beijing! Boxes Sighted!

Wednesday, January 9th, 2008

I was making a surprise visit to our data centre today to see if the mice were at play while yours truly, the big cat was away.

Out the front I saw all these boxes being unloaded by the truckload. I asked what they were all for and was told that this is for the Wimax deployment.

Our data centre has already been running trials for the past 2 years and I have peeked at their equipment with much excitement.

It turns out that the trials were a success and the stuff is being fully deployed now!
