Motorola Launches G24 EDGE, a Versatile Wireless Module for the M2M Market


G24 versatility, robustness and support of multiple wireless technologies to enhance machine-to-machine seamless mobility

Schaumburg, Ill. – 17 July 2006 – Motorola, Inc. (NYSE: MOT), a global leader in mission critical wireless communication solutions and a pioneer in the M2M (machine-to-machine) industry, today announced the launch of the G24 module with EDGE technology. The G24 is a RoHS-compliant, quad-band (850/ 900/ 1800/ 1900 MHz) GSM wireless module and is one of the smallest of its class. The module’s size and flexibility enable the enhancement of seamless mobility in various M2M applications.

The availability of the G24 expands Motorola’s portfolio of GSM, iDEN™ and CDMA modules for the M2M market. M2M, a term widely used to describe the Machine-to-Machine, Man-to-Machine and Machine-to-Man Communications markets, is a pillar of Motorola’s seamless mobility vision.

Motorola wireless modules are used around the world in a wide range of industries, including automotive, telemetry, security and EPOS (Electronic Point of Sale). Wireless modules are at the core of innovative M2M solutions, enabling the transfer of information and commands between automobiles, meters, vending machines, handheld devices and other machines in a potentially endless range of applications, increasing productivity for enterprises of all sizes.

“We are proud to leverage Motorola’s seamless mobility vision and technological expertise to advance the M2M market,” said Aviad Gefen, manager of Motorola’s wireless module unit. “The G24 is the most versatile product in our portfolio. It enables our customers to choose multiple configurations, such as EDGE today and JAVA, voice recognition, and Bluetooth SAP in the future. The module is, in essence, a flexible platform that enables our customers to develop cost-effective custom-made solutions.”

The product’s ruggedness and small size allow it to work in a wide range of environments. The module boasts exceptional RX sensitivity - 4dBm better than standard - enabling stable connectivity even in locations with low coverage for applications such as home security systems installed in basements.

Motorola’s proprietary developer kit enables resellers and manufacturers of electronic equipment to rapidly prototype and develop innovative applications and services with a relatively short time-to-market.

The G24 is fully compatible with the G20, enabling Motorola’s customers, vendors and suppliers to migrate seamlessly to the next generation.
