Newport Digital Technologies, Inc. announced earlier today that it has launched the installation of the Worldwide Interoperability for Microwave Access (WiMax) base station and long range subscriber stations, encompassing four buildings for Newport Center Medical Plaza in Newport Beach, California. Newport Center Medical Plaza is one of the largest medical complexes in California with more than 300 doctors and dentists.

This project is a result of the current Phase I installation project with the Orange County Department of Education’s (OCDE) Learning Resources Center (LRDC) in Costa Mesa, California. It has been designed to confirm NPDT’s WiMax solution as a leading edge product for the commercial vertical market. NPDT will also use this installation to validate the potential of a recurring revenue model based on private business subscriptions for a high-speed, secure wireless solution.

Once finished with the first phase, NDPT will install WiMax subscriber stations into the three remaining high rise buildings within the medical complex, demonstrating WiMax’s wireless Internet service coverage in a commercial subscriber application. These installation projects will enable the company to strategically focus on deploying its WiMax solution into the U.S. market, and later worldwide.

“We are pleased to deploy this technology in Newport Center, a community universally recognized as a premier business, shopping and entertainment district and home to The Irvine Company, Allianz owned Pimco and Fashion Island, where NPDT’s WiMax solution can demonstrate its wireless Internet capabilities and offer a realistic solution for potential customers, ranging from medical and office tenants to retail customers,” stated Michael Lutton, NPDT CEO.

Weiling Tsao, NPDT President, commented, “NPDT is focused on delivering a viable solution for communities and businesses with our next generation WiMax product offering. Coupled with the OCDE project, we believe Newport Center Medical Plaza will illustrate a viable commercial business model that is sustainable, yields recurring revenue and is profitable.”
