Flarion deals with Nortel, Motorola

With Sprint’s decision to buy Nextel, at first blush it seemed that Flarion has received a major setback. However that doesn’t seem to be the case and the company is close to annoucing OEM deals with both Nortel and Motorola. The company already has a pre-existing relationship with Siemens for the European markets. Unstrung is reporting that the company might be very close to signing these big partnerships. Flarion has a properitary technology that is based on OFDM modulation which allows an average data rate of around 1.5 megabits per second per user in a standard cell site currently used by mobile carriers. Unstrung says it is “four or five times more spectrally efficient than comparable 3G technologies, such as CDMA2000 or UMTS — and cheaper to implement.”
