Motorola Demonstrates Key Driver of Broadband Wireless Access in Asia Pacific: WiMAX


Operators to Experience Latest 802.16e wi4 WiMAX Solutions at CommunicAsia 2006

SINGAPORE, June 20 / Having secured the world's first nationwide WiMAX network deployment in Pakistan and with its full portfolio of wireless broadband solutions available to operators, Motorola, Inc. (NYSE:MOT) strongly reaffirms its commitment to deliver cost-effective broadband wireless access (BWA) across Asia Pacific. At CommunicAsia 2006, Motorola is showcasing the strength and breadth of its MOTOwi4(TM) wireless broadband portfolio, including the latest addition -- its carrier-class wi4 WiMAX solution.

WiMAX is a converged network solution capable of IP services within one architecture model. With WiMAX, as well as other MOTOwi4 solutions, operators are able to deploy next-generation IP networks now that are cost effective and technically advanced for delivering multimedia services.

"The ability to deliver WiMAX at the end-user level as well as the network infrastructure level will determine the true value of WiMAX and its widespread adoption in Asia Pacific," said Dr. Simon Leung, regional president, Asia Pacific, Motorola Inc. "Our end-to-end architecture for broadband wireless access and our comprehensive MOTOwi4 portfolio will enable operators to do so, and effectively help them to meet the increasing demands for greater bandwidth, simpler networks and ultimately true seamless mobility."

New analysis from global growth consulting company Frost & Sullivan, WiMAX Growth Opportunities in Asia Pacific(1), reveals that revenue in the WiMAX services market -- covering 12 major Asia Pacific economies -- is forecasted to total US$165.3 million by end-2006, and could reach US$5.4 billion in 2010.

MOTOwi4 is a portfolio of wireless broadband solutions and services that creates, complements and completes IP networks. Delivering coverage to virtually all spaces, MOTOwi4 also includes wi4 fixed broadband, wi4 Mesh, and wi4 Broadband over Powerline, in addition to wi4 WiMAX solutions for private and public networks.

WiMAX solutions demonstrations at CommunicAsia 2006 include:

o Motorola's new carrier-class wi4 WiMAX network, an 802.16e solution that uses advanced antenna techniques to provide greater coverage range and building penetration, which will perform rich media downloads and video streaming through a laptop. Based on Motorola's Carrier Access Point architecture, this is an all-IP fully distributed peer-to-peer architecture solution that reduces the amount of equipment needed.
o IP video telephony and rich media downloads over Motorola's 802.16e- based wi4 WiMAX Ultra Light Access Point and wi4 Canopy solutions.
o MOTOwi4 networks powered by Motorola's next-generation converged core network -- IP Multimedia Subsystem (IMS).
o A comprehensive portfolio of wi4 WiMAX related professional services, from network planning to design and implementation.

These demonstrations can be experienced at Booth 4B3-01, Hall 4, Singapore Expo.
