Daiwabo Information System (hereafter referred to as DIS, Head office: Chuo-ku, Osaka, President: Yoshihiro Nogami) has decided to engage in the next-generation high-speed wireless communication business, using Mobile WiMAX on the mobile virtual network operator (MVNO) system, in collaboration with UQ Communications Inc. (hereafter referred to as UQ Communications, Head office: Minato-ku, Tokyo, President: Takashi Tanaka).

Mobile WiMAX is a communication service that uses a broadband wireless access system (*1), which offers easy high-speed Internet connection provided via the MVNO system. (*2) The following page on the DIS website provides information about Mobile WiMAX:
Marketing strategy of DIS for Mobile WiMAX

(1) We will sell Mobile WiMAX communication cards to end users (users of the Mobile WiMAX service) through our approximately 17,000 sales partners nationwide.
(2) We will establish a system that allows users to receive the application screen automatically by connecting a Mobile WiMAX communication card to their PCs, and to complete the procedures required for Internet access easily. (Available only to users inside the WiMAX area *3)
(3) For corporate users, we will offer a one-year-contract "Mobile WiMAX Service" (Internet-Access Service) and a Mobile WiMAX communication card as a set.
Our sales partners and customers alike will benefit from simple application procedures for the WiMAX service using "iDATEN" (URL:, which is a BtoBtoB system we provide to our sales partners.
Future business development
We will set up a website to provide SaaS type applications, which are extremely suitable for a mobile environment. At the same time, we will assist our customers in constructing a broadband environment inside and outside the company by providing products via a kitting service. This service includes preparing a PC that is ready for "Mobile WiMAX" use, and installing applications before delivery that meet the customer's requirements.
