NeckarCom Launches Commercial VoIP Service on Motorola WiMAX Network


First WiMAX 802.16e standard integrated voice and data service in Germany

Motorola, Inc. (NYSE: MOT) today announced that NeckarCom Telekommunikation GmbH, an innovative German telecommunications provider, has launched its commercial Voice over Internet Protocol (VoIP) service following the successful implementation earlier this year of a WiMAX network in the Ulm region of Germany by Motorola. The flexibility of the Motorola WiMAX solution has enabled NeckarCom to easily integrate all of its current standard voice services across the WiMAX network and offer a new combined voice and data solution, quickly and effectively.

“We completed the roll-out of the WiMAX network in the Ulm region in October, which enabled us to offer wireless broadband data services in an area where fixed-line broadband services were not possible,” said Mr Juergen Herrmann, managing director, NeckarCom Telekommunikation GmbH. “We are now extending our services to offer VoIP, transforming communications in the region. The breadth and quality of Motorola’s WiMAX product portfolio will support NeckarCom as we expand and bring further next-generation communications tools and services to our customers.”

“WiMAX is significantly disrupting traditional broadband business models and challenging providers to think about how they roll-out new communications networks and services in both metro and rural areas,” said Joe Cozzolino, corporate vice president & general manager, Motorola Home and Networks Mobility EMEA. “The Motorola WiMAX network that NeckarCom chose to deploy a few months ago is already transforming its communication capabilities in the Ulm region. We are thrilled to be working with such a forward-looking provider as NeckarCom. Together, we are demonstrating the key benefits that WiMAX offers for voice and data communications today and in the future.”

Customers in the Ulm region now benefit from a high-quality, low-cost, complete communications package from a single provider. NeckarCom’s integrated voice and data service was the first 802.16e WiMAX-based offering in Germany and is based on Motorola’s WiMAX technology. WiMAX 802.16e is a future-proof standard which can support fixed, nomadic, and mobile voice and data services and will allow NeckarCom to build a next-generation portfolio of communication offerings on its current WiMAX network.
