Keithley Instruments Inc., Cleveland, OH, a developer of solutions for emerging measurement needs, announced that it has become a member of the WiMAX Forum. The WiMAX Forum is an industry-led, non-profit organization responsible for promoting and certifying interoperable WiMAX products. WiMAX technology enables wireless high-speed Internet access for laptops and other mobile devices over much longer distances than current wireless technologies such as Wi-Fi.
"Given our aggressive investments in expanding our RF measurement capabilities, our participation in this important industry forum is a natural extension of our commitment to the wireless communications test market," said Mark Hoersten, vice president, business management. "Wireless test in general and WiMAX technologies in particular are fast-moving platforms that require the very latest test solutions, so our participation in the Forum's activities will play a large role in ensuring our solutions are consistent with the very latest needs of the market."
