WiMAX World USA Industry Choice Award Goes to Motorola


Motorola (NYSE:MOT) has received the Industry Choice Best of WiMAX World USA 2007 Award for its WiMAX CPEi 800/850 Series Desktop CPE. Selected from a field of 16 finalists from among more than 80 submissions, this “people’s choice” award marks yet another honor for Motorola and its innovative WiMAX portfolio including customer premises equipment (CPE), access networking, network architecture and deployments.

“This award further recognizes that Motorola continues to lead the industry in wireless broadband technologies,” said Fred Wright, senior vice president, Motorola Home & Networks Mobility. “We are very pleased to win this award and to be recognized by the industry, customers and vendors alike as the industry’s choice for WiMAX.”

Motorola is involved in 40 WiMAX trial deployments with customers around the world and has contracts with 12 of them for commercial WiMAX systems. Motorola’s CPEi 800/850 Series Desktop CPE is the second generation, WiMAX 802.16e Wave 2 ready desktop wireless broadband modem portfolio. This CPE provides fixed, wireless broadband connections to bandwidth intensive, media rich applications leveraging voice, data, WiFi and video services. With its “plug-and-play” functionality, it acts as a compact communications center for advanced home communication.

Conference delegates voted for the Industry Choice Award at the event, and the WiMAX World USA awards presentation took place following the close of the first day’s convention sessions. Motorola will be featured with the other award winners in the November issue of xchange as well as on the WiMAX World and xchange Web sites.

Earlier this week at WiMAX World USA, Motorola presented a mobile WiMAX experience including live hand-offs during an exclusive cruise along the Chicago River. Attendees experienced uninterrupted mobile applications including web browsing, voice over IP (VoIP) calls, video streaming and MobiTV while moving past access point sites along the route of the cruise.

Motorola has also successfully demonstrated several of these applications on streets along the Chicago River while driving at speeds of more than 50 mph and while riding Chicago’s famed elevated train. These demonstrations are another step in achieving an all IP wireless mobile network that is capable of supporting VoIP, data and video.

Within the past 12 months, Motorola’s award-winning WiMAX portfolio has received numerous accolades for its end-to-end solution including customer deployments, CPE, access point technology and distributed network architecture. Some of most recent honors include the NXTcomm Eos Award in the Technology Innovation Access Networking category for Motorola’s WiMAX Flexible Access Point System; the WiMAX World Europe Awards Devices category for the next-generation CPEi 200/300 Series WiMAX desktop; and the third annual Network Middle East Innovation Awards Best Telco/Service Provider category for its wi4 WiMAX technology.
