WiMAX routers for Xohm

A new batch of routers is enroute for Sprint's WiMAX network, reports say. The routers were designed exclusively for Sprint's Xohm service by ZyXEL, and are now said to be shipping out of the latter's home country of Taiwan. The initial number of routers will be limited, say sources for DigiTimes, as Xohm is still very much in a trial period. It is currently available in Baltimore, Chicago and Washington, with broader release only being scheduled for April.

The routers themselves appear to be designed for the home, with an aesthetically-appealing barrel shape. They would thus be used to enhance indoor Xohm reception, making it more suitable as a replacement for cable or DSL Internet access. WiMAX is not strictly tethered to celullar networks.
