NeckarCom Selects Motorola for German WiMAX Network

Residents and small businesses in rural areas of Baden-Wurttemberg to benefit from new wireless broadband services

VIENNA, Austria, May 30 // -- WIMAX World Europe -
Innovative telecommunications provider, NeckarCom Telekommunikation, has
selected Motorola GmbH to plan, deploy and integrate a 3.5GHz WiMAX network in
the Ulm region in Baden-Wurttemberg, Germany's third largest state.
Motorola's WiMAX solution will enable NeckarCom to deliver broadband services
to homeowners and small businesses in areas currently underserved by
fixed-line broadband.

The first stage of the network roll-out, beginning immediately, will offer
subscribers broadband data services. Within the next weeks, access to Voice
over IP (VoIP) services will be added. The contract follows a successful
trial in selected communities in which NeckarCom was able to deploy the
Motorola equipment and deliver broadband services to homes within just three
weeks. NeckarCom plans to expand the service across the entire region upon
completion of the initial roll-out phase.

"New WiMAX technology offers us, especially in rural areas, the ability to
develop large potential markets with low cost broadband internet access.
Motorola convinced us both with respect to the quality of their product
portfolio as well as the best price and most economic operating costs. Based
on the long-term expertise of Motorola and the positive customer acceptance
during the pilot phase we are confident that we have an excellent partner with
whom we can work," said Mr Jurgen Herrmann, managing director NeckarCom
Telekommunikation GmbH.

In addition to the WiMAX solution, such as WiMAX Access Points (the WAP
400 series) and Customer Premise Equipment (CPEi 600 series), Motorola will
provide planning and integration services.

"This contract reflects the increasingly competitive nature of the
broadband market in Germany. WiMAX significantly disrupts traditional
broadband business models, allowing innovative organizations such as NeckarCom
to rapidly enter new markets and offer services to previously untouched
regions," said Jose Figueroa, corporate vice president, Motorola Inc. "We are
very pleased that NeckarCom recognizes the benefits that WiMAX offers and
Motorola's leadership in this market."
