Lucent said it is working with InMotion to make sure InMotion's gear interoperates with Lucent's CDMA networks: InMotion supplies Wi-Fi networks on trains and can use the wide area networks for backhaul. Now Lucent has made sure that InMotion's gear will work with Lucent-built CDMA networks in North America.
Last week Lucent made a similar deal with Top Global. Looks like Lucent is trying to take the lead promoting wide area networks as good options for backhaul for Wi-Fi networks. It will take some time before the mobile Wi-Fi networks will be able to offer a broadband service using a wide area network for backhaul given how slow the wide area networks are to date in most areas.
