Infrax Systems (IFXY) Announces the Availability of New 1.4-1.6 GHz Upgradeable WiMAX / LTE Base Station for Rural Broadband Networks

    Infrax Systems, Inc. (OTCBB: IFXY), a global provider of unified Smart Grid-related products and services for the Energy and Utility industries, today announced the availability of a new upgradeable WiMAX/LTE base station. This new base station option allows network operators and service providers to utilize the desirable 1.4-1.6 GHz frequencies. The addition of these new base stations will provide operators of rural broadband networks better range than the typical 2.5 or 3.5 GHz WiMAX. These new base stations also have the capability of being upgraded from WiMAX (802.16e) to Long Term Evolution (LTE) via firmware. These modular 4G base stations can even provide the ability to change to a different frequency by changing radio modules to provide more longevity of the platform and protect network operator's investments.

   The American Reinvestment and Recovery Act appropriated $7.2 billion for the Department of Agriculture’s Rural Utilities Service (RUS) and the Department of Commerce’s National
Telecommunications Information Administration (NTIA) to expand broadband access and adoption in communities across the U.S., which will increase jobs, spur investments in technology and infrastructure, and provide long-term economic benefits.
