Motorola Now Shipping MOTOTRBO(TM) Capacity Plus Single Site Digital Trunking to Help Users Maximize Capacity and Efficiency

Single-site digital trunking system cost-effectively expands communication systems and provides reliable digital technology

SCHAUMBURG, Ill., July 27 -- Motorola, Inc. (NYSE: MOT) today announced shipment in North America, Europe, the Middle East and Africa of Capacity Plus, a single-site digital trunking solution that efficiently expands the capacity of the MOTOTRBO Professional Digital Two-way Radio System for users who need to communicate a large amount of business-critical information.

MOTOTRBO Capacity Plus is a scalable, cost-effective solution for MOTOTRBO conventional systems that provides reliable digital technology combined with the many benefits of traditional trunking systems to enable MOTOTRBO radio users to share both voice and data communications on the same digital system without having to add new frequencies. This intelligent software solution enables users to maximize the full capacity of a MOTOTRBO system and quickly transmit business-critical information while eliminating the need to purchase additional infrastructure, which means lower equipment costs for users.

Capacity Plus delivers five times the capacity of an analog conventional system and up to three times the capacity of an analog trunking system. It also delivers twice the capacity of a MOTOTRBO digital conventional system. Designed to be flexible to meet a user's communication needs, Capacity Plus supports voice communication, data communication or a combination of both. The solution also features the Repeater Diagnostic and Control application, enabling users to monitor and mange their system remotely. In addition, it offers system-wide calling capability so users can communicate with all personnel at once.

As a single-site trunking communication solution, Capacity Plus is ideal for resorts, hotels, hospitals, warehouses, manufacturing plants and other medium to large single-site facilities. It allows users to quickly and efficiently share a large amount of business-critical voice and data communication, resulting in increased productivity for businesses.

"This MOTOTRBO Capacity Plus system is very impressive and encouraging," said Paul Hyde of Leading Edge Wireless of Memphis, Tenn., which conducted extensive end-user testing of the Motorola trunking solution. "Even with a large number of radios using the system at the same time, we were blown away with the quick system access times. In addition, we are excited by the opportunity to offer this solution to users who require the ability to communicate a high volume of voice and data information critical to their daily business operations while benefiting from the extended capabilities of digital technology."

"Capacity Plus is an ideal solution for many businesses using an analog trunking solution and wanting to take advantage of the increased capacity offered in Motorola's MOTOTRBO solution," said Jeff Spaeth, Motorola vice president and general manager, Professional/Commercial Radio and Accessories. "Furthermore, its Time-Division Multiple Access (TDMA) digital technology provides additional benefits such as lower infrastructure costs, longer battery life and advanced voice and data features, which is why TDMA is the digital technology choice of the future."

David Hosie of Audiolink Limited of London, United Kingdom added, "During tests, it was immediately obvious that Motorola had achieved something special with Capacity Plus. The advanced functionality, ease of programming, and an upgrade path for existing MOTOTRBO users means everybody is a winner."

MOTOTRBO is a standards-based, digital two-way radio communications platform that combines exceptional two-way radios with digital technology to deliver increased capacity and spectral efficiency. MOTOTRBO delivers twice the calling capacity of analog systems as well as integrated data communications, enhanced voice communications and longer battery life. The platform includes portable and mobile radios, a repeater and accessories. It also supports enhanced voice communications and data applications such as text messaging, global positioning system (GPS)-based location services and much more through Motorola's strong Application Developer Program. MOTOTRBO conforms to the multi-vendor ETSI Digital Mobile Radio (DMR) standard.
