Motorola Showcases Seamless Mobility Capability Using CDMA 1xEV-DO Rev. A Solution at 3G World Congress & Exhibition 2005

HONG KONG, Nov. 15 -- 3G World Congress -- Motorola Inc. (NYSE:MOT) unveiled its prototype CDMA 1xEV-DO Rev. A solution at 3G World Congress and Exhibition 2005, demonstrating some of the advanced multimedia wireless broadband services that will be possible with this next generation technology. With downlink speeds of up to 3.1 Mbps and uplink speeds of up to 1.8 Mbps, CDMA 1xEV-DO Rev. A provides new capability for operators to offer enhanced services such as simultaneous video, voice and data applications. These new services can help wireless operators earn incremental revenue, reach new user segments and compete with those services offered by other broadband providers.

At its booth (# 1721), Motorola is featuring live Voice over IP (VoIP) and video telephony calls, two applications that are optimized for commercial service on a CDMA 1xEV-DO Rev. A network due to the higher bandwidth, lower data latency, and improved quality of service inherent with the technology. The demonstration uses Motorola's prototype CDMA 1xEV-DO Rev. A solution and Motorola's IP Multimedia Subsystem (IMS), (referred to as Multimedia Domain (MMD) by the 3GPP2), to demonstrate simultaneous video telephony calls using Motorola's Ojo(TM) Personal Video Phone, VoIP, and video downloads from a media server. Test modems from Qualcomm provide the CDMA 1xEV-DO Rev. A link to a Motorola base station equipped with a CDMA 1xEV-DO Rev. A channel card.

"Motorola's all-IP CDMA architecture is ready to support Rev. A, and our integrated radio access network solution lets operators leverage their existing investment as they make the migration to this new technology," said Bruce Stone, senior vice president, Cellular Networks, Motorola. "Our CDMA 1xEV-DO Rev. A solution is another addition to Motorola's growing portfolio of broadband access and core solutions, mobile devices, and services that will enable converged services and seamless mobility."

CDMA 1xEV-DO Rev. A is an enhancement to CDMA 1xEV-DO mobile broadband access that combines voice and data on a single carrier, decreasing the burden of operating separate networks for circuit voice and packet data. This not only increases voice capacity, but also enables multiple concurrent data links. Motorola's 1xEV-DO system, in service with operators in Brazil, Thailand, and the United States, can be migrated to Rev. A with hardware and software upgrades. Motorola's CDMA 1xEV-DO Rev. A solution is planned for commercial availability in 2006.
