“Wireless broadband is the utility of the 21st century, and Motorola has the solutions in both WiMAX
Motorola’s 4G progress in 2009 was marked with accomplishments in both LTE and WiMAX that have positioned it well for further momentum in 2010. In addition, Motorola has stated its commitment to WiMAX 802.16m as it expands its product portfolio and customer base to maintain its leadership position in WiMAX. The company also continues its active participation in numerous standards bodies as they refine specifications for various technologies that will enable faster broadband access.
According to Motorola’s 2009 Media Engagement Barometer
Motorola’s early commitment to WiMAX has given it vast experience and expertise in designing, planning, optimizing and managing Orthogonal Frequency Division Multiplexing (OFDM) mobile broadband networks. It also has yielded tremendous insight into perfecting the 4G network scheduler, the master controller of the radio access network that prioritizes voice and data traffic.
Motorola is leveraging this extensive OFDM, multiple-in/multiple out (MIMO), all-IP wireless broadband experience, and expertise in the 4G scheduler to deliver a complete award-winning LTE solution that will support both FDD and TD-LTE. Its first commercial LTE deployments will be based on third-generation WiMAX products that have been proven and field-hardened and for which algorithms have been optimized to deliver best performance in a real-world environment.
”With our experience from WiMAX we can get our LTE customers to market faster and with less risk,” Brda said. “Our deployment, management and optimization of many large-scale commercial WiMAX networks around the world gives us operations-level experience which our research and development teams use to make better and more stable LTE solutions.”
