Motorola Awarded Key GPON Fiber-to-the-Home Customer Wins by D&P Communications and PBT Communications


Telecom operators to deploy fiber-to-the-home for triple play, ultra-fast Internet speeds and high-quality RF video

NXTcomm – LAS VEGAS – June 2008 – Motorola, Inc. (NYSE: MOT) announced today that two telecom operators, D&P Communications and PBT Communications, have selected Motorola’s fiber-to-the-home (FTTH) solution to build out all fiber networks to support the delivery of “triple play” (RF video, IP data and digital telephony) entertainment and broadband services. These new gigabit passive optical network (GPON) deployments will enable faster broadband Internet speeds and offer the ability to deliver the highest quality high-definition TV (HDTV), video-on-demand (VOD) and standard definition television programming available to consumers today.

Both D&P Communications and PBT Communications will deploy the field proven Motorola AXS2200 Optical Line Terminal and new ONT1400GT optical network terminal that are optimized for the delivery of IP and RF video entertainment and broadband services.

The combination of Motorola’s AXS2200 and ONT1400 provides a solution that allows service providers to take advantage of the ultra-broadband nature of GPON to offer new tiers of residential and commercial broadband services, while leveraging the full capabilities of GPON to deliver trusted RF video services via existing RF headend and set-top boxes. This approach allows service providers like D&P and PBT to achieve the cost benefits associated with the reuse of existing video networking and RF set-top boxes, including Motorola’s line of market-leading headends and set-tops, while at the same time gaining the flexibility of a very-high throughput IP service delivery platform.

“The opportunities to scale are tremendous,” said Dr. George Simmons, corporate vice president and general manager, Access Networks Solutions, Motorola, Inc. “We’re showing operators that whatever size and type of network they have in place, we can provide a cost efficient migration path to FTTH and GPON. The goal is to continue increasing the value of broadband services for subscribers while approaching network upgrades with a realistic notion of what operators have to spend. We believe that GPON carries extraordinary upside, and we’re pleased to be working with both D&P and PBT to make their deployments possible.”

Based on open standards and leveraging a highly flexible design, the Motorola
ONT1400GT addresses the demand for ultra broadband services. It can be configured to seamlessly deliver TDM voice, quality VoIP, multi-port high speed Internet access and IPTV via a single fiber optic connection to the home. The ONT1400GT also supports interactive services by integrating upstream signals from Motorola’s widely deployed family of RF headends, RF set-tops and combination RF/IP set-top box solutions.

Optimized for the delivery of video, the Motorola AXS2200 Optical Line Terminal features unparalleled density, scalability and flexibility and provides superior capacity for growth in services such as IPTV, high definition VOD and time-shifted television. Proven to be reliable in tier one service provider networks across the globe, the AXS2200 helps service providers stay ahead of consumer demand for high-quality, rich, personalized communications and entertainment experiences.

Motorola will have a live demonstration of the proven Motorola AXS2200 Optical Line Terminal and new ONT1400GT optical network terminals at NXTcomm, June 17-19, 2008, at the Las Vegas Convention Center, Booth #SU5016.
