Motorola showcases Seamless Mobility solutions at CeBIT


New products for consumers, business, public safety and network providers

HANOVER/TAUNUSSTEIN – 9 March 2006 – At CeBIT in Hall 26, Stand E40, Motorola (NYSE:MOT) is presenting technologies which enable seamless communication in various fields of life. In addition to the first licence-free digital handsets for business two-way radio, Motorola’s digital public safety radio systems, based on TETRA (TErrestrial Trunked RAdio), are being demonstrated with biometrics applications.

Motorola’s Networks business is launching new applications for cellular network providers and a solution for mobile broadband Internet access. Bluetooth modules for cars and stylish designer mobiles are setting mobile phone trends. In addition, Motorola Networks will be presenting its solutions at the WiMAX Forum Pavilion in Hall 13, Stand D35.

“Today’s announcements show that, thanks to its pioneering innovations, Motorola has come considerably closer to its vision of seamless mobility. Seamless mobility any time anywhere is our top priority. We understand the need of the consumer to have constant access to inspiring information – whether music, films or the Internet – and to be able to communicate everywhere – whether by e-mail, text message or phone call”, explains Norbert Quinkert, Chairman of Motorola GmbH.

Multi-modal biometry solutions
Biometric 3D face recognition plays a decisive role in access controls and proof of identity. Motorola offers a complete package for biometry identity management, security in the personalisation of registrations and passports, proof of identity at border checks, mobile AFIS (Automatic Fingerprint Identification Systems) and access controls. Motorola’s leading multi-modal biometry solutions, which combine fingerprints with 2D and 3D face recognition and enable a seamless transmission of the results via TETRA, GSM and GPRS, are demonstrated at the stand.

Leading role in the expansion of WiMAX
As a founding member of the WiMAX Forum, which was launched in 2004, Motorola plays a leading role in the development of this new radio standard. With a data transfer rate of up to 108 Mbit/s and a wide range, the standard for regional radio networks surpasses the current WLAN technology. With a so-called “quality of service”, WiMAX is supposed to be more suitable for speech transmission than standard broadband networks. With the MOTOwi4 solution, Motorola is already carrying out a pilot project in Germany. The new technology will give the wide-scale distribution of broadband radio networks new momentum.

Mobile convenience in the car
Bluetooth car kits for frequent drivers, demanding callers and music lovers automatically connect to mobiles in the car. The speaker-independent voice control makes operating mobiles while driving easy – hands remain on the steering wheel and eyes on the road. MP3 files stored in the mobile can be listened to in premium quality via audio streaming on the car stereo system. If a call comes in, the music is interrupted and continued when the caller hangs up.

Stylish communication at all times
With the new ultra-flat designer mobile, SLVR, L6 and L2, Motorola is expanding its success concept of “Iconic Design” to the candybar segment. Even the cult clamshell, the RAZR V3, is jazzing up its style with two colourful new models – “pretty in pink” and “cool in blue”. Its successor, the V3i, stands out due to its extraordinary sound quality, a high-contrast interior display and improved photo quality. The new Bluetooth headsets, H5 Miniblue and H605, are very tasteful. At 7.4g and with a 33 x 41mm size, the H5 Miniblue is one of the smallest headsets worldwide. It records speech directly in the auditory canal, thus reducing interfering outside noises. Together with Vodafone, Motorola is presenting a transmission standard (Digital Video Broadcasting for Handhelds) with which multimedia services and, in particular, television can be received by mobile phone.

Europe’s first licence-free digital radio sets
The first licence-free digital radio sets by Motorola, DTR2430 and DTR2450, are a milestone in the technological development of radio sets. They offer similar functions to mobiles but with digital audio quality. From text messaging to call divert and call lists to calls with one or more subscribers. The new products are particularly suitable for use in the education sector, trade, the processing industry, property management, the hotel and catering industry and the building trade.
