Motorola's One Point Wireless Suite Delivers Optimal Network Performance and Control

New software suite provides design, deployment and on-going management solutions for Motorola's end-to-end wireless broadband ecosystem

SCHAUMBURG, Ill., June 17 /-- Motorola, Inc. (NYSE:MOT) today announced the North American availability of its new set of software products for designing, deploying and managing outdoor wireless networks: the Motorola One Point Wireless Suite. The suite features MeshPlanner, PTP LINKPlanner and introduces Motorola's new Wireless Manager which provides IT managers and network operators enhanced visibility and control of Motorola's wireless broadband products.

"The One Point Wireless Suite, combined with our high performance, high speed wireless network solutions, provides an unbeatable combination for customers," said Phil Bolt, vice president and general manager, Motorola Wireless Broadband Solutions. "Now, through a single suite of robust software applications, operators can control every detail about their network or series of networks -- from inception to deployment to full operational mode."

One Point Wireless offers planning software to take the guesswork out of designing networks for optimal coverage, capacity and performance. Template-based configuration automates and speeds device configuration. The visually enhanced management software allows operators to see every node in the network and enables the efficient management of the entire system -- including the access, backhaul and mesh layers. Automated device monitoring facilitates performance verification and accelerated problem detection and resolution.

The One Point Wireless Suite includes the following components.

-- MeshPlanner provides the ability to design and measure mesh networks and Point to Multi-Point backhaul. MeshPlanner replaces costly field-based or manual design and verification with software-based processes, reducing planning and labor costs while creating a network design with optimal coverage, capacity and performance.

-- PTP LINKPlanner maximizes link planning efficiency while optimizing coverage and minimizing interference for single or multiple PTP links. The software allows you to create "what if" scenarios while determining important performance measurements to include link reliability, throughput, and path loss. The tool integrates with Google(TM) Earth to provide a comprehensive overview of the entire PTP wireless network. Reports generated from the tool serve as valuable installation guidelines and validate overall link performance across the PTP portfolio of wireless Ethernet bridges.

-- Wireless Manager enables streamlined deployment and provisioning of networks which helps to reduce costs and enables faster network setup. Once the network is operational, the software enables full management capabilities including quick detection and resolution of problems that impact network performance and user satisfaction, activity scheduling, automated firmware upgrades and security provisioning and enforcement. Along with industry standard reporting capabilities, the software uniquely offers enhanced visibility and control through real-time, highly advanced images of network elements and connectivity via Google Earth. This graphical representation helps the operator quickly determine the network status, identify problems and determine the severity of impact on the network and end users.

Motorola recently launched an enhanced version of its MOTOMESH(TM) Duo solution, which fully leverages the capabilities of the One Point Wireless Suite. This flexible WiFi mesh solution combines enhanced throughput performance and end-to-end client security in a compact, lightweight form factor that can meet the demands of small to large networks.

Motorola's One Point Wireless Suite, including the new Wireless Manager, will be on display at Booth SU5016 at NXTComm08 June 17-19 at the Las Vegas Convention Center.
