Motorola Continues MOTOwi4(TM) Momentum; Advances WiMAX Adoption with Commitment to Ecosystem

Recent wi4 WiMAX 802.16e contract win, product announcements and shipments advance Motorola delivery of personal broadband solutions

ARLINGTON HEIGHTS., Ill., -- Following its recent announcement of the world's first nationwide 802.16e WiMAX network in Pakistan, Motorola, Inc. (NYSE: MOT) today continues its aggressive leadership in WiMAX technology with plans to develop a comprehensive ecosystem for personal broadband "on the go."

The commitment furthers the company's MOTOwi4 strategy and extends its recent product introductions -- including a carrier-class WiMAX access point -- by incorporating plans to work with multiple chipset suppliers to help ensure that a proliferation of WiMAX enabled devices are available at attractive prices to meet the anticipated global demand for WiMAX technology.

"Motorola recognizes the momentum a vibrant ecosystem will bring to advancing the widespread adoption of WiMAX," said Dan Coombes, senior vice president and chief technology officer, Motorola Networks and Enterprise. "Motorola would like to drive the ecosystem to widespread adoption and support for WiMAX chipsets, and by driving an end-to-end architecture for personal broadband, Motorola is poised to deliver all the solutions necessary to help operators meet growing needs for greater bandwidth, simpler networks and true mobility."

Motorola is building on its previously announced relationship with Intel to promote 802.16e WiMAX by working with other technology leaders to ensure there will be a complete ecosystem for delivering the benefits of WiMAX and for demonstrating its value proposition at every point-from WiMAX-enabled handsets and customer premise equipment to basestations, PC cards and chipsets.

WiMAX is a converged network solution capable of delivering everything from voice to video and broadcast within one architecture model. With WIMAX, carriers are able to deploy next-generation IP networks now that are cost effective and technically advanced for delivering multimedia services.

"There are really many different answers to the question of 'why WiMAX?'" Coombes said. "WiMAX provides a critical technology for enabling and ensuring seamless mobility among such technologies as cellular, broadband wireless, WiFi, and wireline, and can be used by many types of operators to meet their specific business case and needs."

For example, existing service providers can overlay 2G cellular networks with WiMAX, while 3G operators can leverage WiMAX to improve backhaul operations. New entrants, like Wateen in Pakistan, also can benefit by using WiMAX for greenfield installations of broadband networks.

Motorola, a key participant in the WiMAX industry, has been a principal member of the WiMAX Forum(TM) since 2004, and has been an active contributor to the IEEE 802.16 committees, especially those focused on mobility and internetworking.

Coombes will deliver a keynote address: "Creating an End-to-End Ecosystem for WiMAX Networks", at WiMAX Strategies 2006 on Thurs., June 8 at 9:00 a.m. CDT. His presentation will be available for replay beginning at 1:00 p.m. CDT at
