The metro-scale, multi-radio-node equipment maker gets an investment from a Mobile WiMax pioneer: Interesting news. All the companies that make gear for metro-scale markets like to talk about being radio agnostic, but the radios are generally 802.11a (5 GHz) and b/g (2.4 GHz). Strix is no exception. But they (and BelAir) have always talked about how they have room in their chassis to slip in wireless cards using other technology.
The investment amount by Samsung Ventures isn't disclosed; their portfolio is $400m strong. The company's venture arm is putting money into Wi-Fi and WiMax firms. The VC site doesn't have a link on its Portfolio Companies text, however.
