Motorola Announces Wireless Products for CTIA  

Today Motorola announced several new media solutions for consumers. Six new products - ranging from a CDMA-based femtocell to a plug-and-play desktop for indoor fixed WiMAX deployments - will debut at next week’s CTIA, April 1-3, 2008 in Las Vegas.

  • Motorola’s Mobile TV DH02. A touch screen device for multimedia entertainment, TV and navigation on the go. It is said to feature Live DVB-H TV with PVR capabilities – timeshift, live pause, frame grabbing. Of course finding a live DVB-H transmitter in the USofA might be tricky.
  • Motorola Long Term Evolution (LTE) Demos. Motorola will demonstrate its Long Term Evolution (LTE) solutions at CTIA Wireless 2008.
  • CDMA Femtocell. Motorola will demonstrate its expanded femtocell portfolio, including its CDMA solution. It’s an expansion of its current line of 3G UMTS femtocell CPE announced at Mobile World Congress last month.
  • A Common Wireless Broadband Platform to Support Both WiMAX and LTE. The new common wireless broadband platform will be used to support both WiMAX 802.16e access points and the Long Term Evolution (LTE) evolved Node-B (eNodeB). The new common platform is physically smaller than the first generation WiMAX product and can be software configurable to support either WiMAX or LTE.
  • The WiMAX Wave-2 Ready CPEi 150. The plug-and-play desktop CPEi 150 for indoor fixed WiMAX deployments, is 802.16e-compliant Wave-2 ready.
  • CDMA/EV-DO Rev-A to LTE Network Handoffs. Motorola today announced the first successful packet-switched network handoff between CDMA EV-DO Rev-A and Long Term Evolution (LTE) technologies. Motorola says it illustrates how service providers using CDMA-based networks today can smoothly integrate LTE into their network.

Motorola, with partners Intel, Clearwire and XOHM, will offer mobile WiMAX “test drives” around the Las Vegas Convention Center to demonstrate WiMAX from an end user’s perspective, as they did at CES earlier this year and more recently at the Mobile World Congress in Barcelona.
