New products support current and future technologies
ORLANDO, Fla., March 27 // -- CTIA WIRELESS 2007 --
Motorola, Inc. (NYSE: MOT) today announced its next-generation universal base
station (UBS) and Picocell M810 at CTIA Wireless 2007. Both products will be
deployed in mobile communications service provider networks with various
frequencies and configurations (CDMA 1x and EVDO-Rev A) beginning this year.
The Motorola UBS is built on a highly integrated product architecture that
offers enhanced reliability and integrated functionality. It is a
cost-effective solution for both emerging and mature markets with a broad
range of capacity-growth capabilities and configurations.
For example, the Motorola UBS is available today for CDMA markets
supporting dual mode voice/data applications. However with its highly
scaleable, all-IP architecture, the UBS is also capable of supporting future
technologies like Long-Term Evolution (LTE) and Ultra Mobile Broadband(TM)
(UMB(TM)). This makes it an ideal platform to support future broadband
migration strategies for individual carriers.
The Picocell M810 is a low-power product that offers broad capacity -- up
to eight carriers. The product's flexibility allows for deployment in hot
spot and indoor applications. It can also be connected to an external remote
amplifier for rural, outdoor configurations.
"These product launches are a demonstration of Motorola's continued
commitment to CDMA technology," said Darren McQueen, vice president of IMS,
CDMA and LTE Broadband Access Technologies, Motorola Networks & Enterprise.
Offering a wide range of configuration and deployment options for global
market applications, the Motorola UBS uses significantly less power and has a
much smaller footprint than previous generations of the product. The more
compact unit has the capacity to address cellular operators' future needs
including the ability to add carriers from remote locations. It can be
deployed in both indoor and outdoor locations.
