Motorola Announces Worldwide Distribution Agreement with Swisscom


A premier provider of advanced guest services to hotels selects Motorola’s Power Broadband system as core element for the delivery of its premium guest services

HORSHAM, PA – March 2008 -- Motorola, Inc. (NYSE: MOT) today announced that Swisscom, through its Hospitality Services subsidiary, has signed a distribution agreement to deploy mT2a PowerBroadband system in partner hotels across Europe and North America. The mT2a system is field-proven by Swisscom in more than 18,000 guestrooms across 10 countries. The mT2a product line was chosen for its ability to maximize the communications experience of hotel guests while minimizing the operation costs.

“Swisscom is committed to serving the ever changing needs of leisure and business travelers, and to provide them and our hotel partners with the most advanced broadband services, stated Leo Brand, CEO of Swisscom’s Hospitality Services, “a cutting-edge network infrastructure is vital for the delivery of both our premium information and entertainment services and our extensive meeting room services. Motorola’s mT2a product forms a critical building block that assists us in our continued efforts to keep our infrastructure future-proof and to control the complete service delivery from the server to the to the hotel guest.”

“Motorola’s new mT2a system is now being deployed across European and North American hotels for advanced guest services,” said Greg Ioffe, General Manager of Motorola’s Private Broadband Networks group, “and we are glad to be working closely with Swisscom. Together, we look forward to bringing innovative broadband solutions to hotels. This will enable IPTV, HDTV, downloadable movies, targeted advertising, personalized and localized information to enrich the traveler’s away from home experience.”

The mT2a PowerBroadband system is distinguished by the m2 Wallplate which is integrated into the existing telephone jacks in hotel guestrooms. No additional wiring or rewiring is required. All power and broadband modules are contained within the small Wallplate eliminating the requirement for separate broadband modems and power supplies. Hotels especially like the reduced clutter and clean appearance of the “no box” solution.

The mT2a Master Switch provides unprecedented performance to each endpoint. Delivering over 50 Mbps of bandwidth to each Wallplate with support for application-level QoS and VLANs, the system has been specifically designed to handle a “quad play” of converged services such as high-speed Internet access, high definition IPTV streams, voice-over-IP phones, and Wi-Fi access points – all over a single in-building telephone line.
