Motorola’s wi4 Fixed Wireless Broadband Portfolio Creates Opportunities in Newly Available 5.4 GHz Spectrum

Innovative Canopy® PMP and PTP solutions support high-bandwidth data, video and voice applications

SCHAUMBURG, Ill. – 01 October, 2007 – Motorola, Inc. (NYSE: MOT) today announced the launch of its 5.4 GHz Canopy Point-to-Multipoint (PMP) and Point-to-Point (PTP) wireless broadband solutions in the United States and Canada. Part of the MOTOwi4™ portfolio, the new offerings will provide network operators, enterprises, government, and commercial customers with access to additional spectrum, enabling bandwidth-intensive data, voice and video communications.

The Federal Communication Commission (FCC) recently opened the 5.4 GHz radio frequency (RF) for commercial use, making more spectrum available to meet growing demands for bandwidth. The 5.4 GHz spectrum offers 255 MHz of bandwidth, double that available in the 5.8 GHz band. This allows for the co-location of multiple radios on one rooftop or location with minimal interference simplifying overall network design.

“Our network infrastructure currently consists of Canopy Point-to-Multipoint access modules and the Point-to-Point product for backhaul. The introduction of Motorola’s 5.4 GHz unlicensed solutions will provide us with additional opportunities to leverage this newly available spectrum,” said Brian Magnuson, president, Cascade Networks, Inc. “These products bring more opportunities and greater flexibility as more radios can co-locate on existing infrastructure.”

The 5.4 GHz PTP 400 and PTP 600 unlicensed products provide reliable, high-bandwidth and high-speed connectivity to support convergent, multimedia applications such as data transfer, Voice over IP (VoIP), video surveillance and audio downloads. It also provides a powerful backhaul solution for Canopy PMP and mesh networks and PTP links where wired access is not available or is cost-prohibitive.

The Canopy 5.4 GHz product provides a greenfield opportunity in the U.S. and Canada, for business and residential service providers that require additional bandwidth to support services such as data transfer, video streaming, VoIP and gaming while conserving tower costs.

Both the Canopy 5.4 GHz and the 5.4 GHz PTP 400 & 600 Series Integrated Systems comply with power restrictions in the U.S.and Canada. They also easily integrate with other wireless systems in the 5 GHz spectrum, including the MOTOwi4 portfolio of broadband wireless solutions that includes Fixed Broadband, WiMAX, Mesh, Broadband Over Powerline (BPL) and enterprise WLAN for public and private networks.

Motorola will be introducing the new 5.4 GHz product line at its annual channel conference for authorized channel partners in Palm Springs, CA October 1-4th.
