Motorola Brings Ultra-Broadband and IP Video Service Delivery Together to Drive Rich Personalized Consumer Experiences


End-to-end solution across wireline broadband, wireless broadband, IP video delivery and home networking addresses consumer demand for seamless entertainment experiences

LAS VEGAS, Nev. – 20 March 2006 – Driving more personalized communications experiences for consumers, Motorola (NYSE: MOT) today unveiled converged technology solutions at TelecomNEXT that are able to seamlessly deliver data rich services, such as high-definition video, on-demand services, and unified cellular-landline voice communications. The wireline and wireless technology demonstrations—including complete Gigabit Passive Optical Network (GPON) and IP video over Wireless Broadband Solutions—showcase Motorola’s ability to deliver ultra-broadband capacity to more people in more places.

These developments are evidence of Motorola’s commitment to aggressively pursue the multi-billion dollar IP solutions market[1] with a full range of ultra-broadband next-generation technologies designed to empower an ever-eager consumer population with bandwidth intensive, peer-to-peer, broadcast, and everything-on-demand entertainment services.

“The IP video market will yield explosive growth as consumers move digital content not only in the home but to multiple devices,” said Matt Davis, director, consumer multiplay services, IDC. “Ultra broadband (UBB) solutions can provide the answer in helping providers go beyond the 20 megabits of broadband capacity that is being allocated today for most homes to supplying the 50+ megabit capacity necessary for emerging lifestyle innovations.”

Motorola is helping wireline service providers cost-effectively close the gap on the bandwidth requirements they need today and into the future with a portfolio of end-to-end broadband and ultra-broadband (UBB) solutions. The benefits of using Motorola wireline and wireless solutions are on display at the Motorola booth #1227 and the Motorola Lounge booth #2604 at TelecomNEXT in Las Vegas, March 21-22, 2006.

Motorola will share its strategy for IP Video Services over WiMAX, along with solution demonstrations to include symmetrical service delivery over GPON, IP video over MOTOwi4™ Canopy® Access Point, and IP-based set-tops that support a wide range of advanced entertainment features, including high-definition TV (HDTV), video-on-demand (VOD), digital video recording (DVR), single- and multi-stream whole-home video, and advanced IPTV services. The set-top platform supports the MPEG-4 AVC (Advanced Video Coding), VC1, and MPEG-2 video coders.

In addition to demonstrating viable solutions for UBB on multiple network types, Motorola is sharing its leadership in driving the convergence necessary for digital lifestyles through multiple panels at TelecomNEXT including:
