Motorola, Inc. has announced it is expanding its MOTOwi4(TM) solutions to provide and extend wireless and networking coverage to indoor spaces.

With the new wi4 Indoor solution, Enterprise wireless LAN (WLAN), service providers, governments and enterprises now have their choice of connectivity solutions to meet their wireless coverage needs both indoors and outdoors.

    "Now, only Motorola can provide the expertise to deliver mobility both indoor and outdoors, providing people with access to required information wherever they may be -- even when they are moving. That's true enterprise mobility," said Kathy Paladino, president of Motorola Enterprise Mobility business.

    Motorola understands that one size does not fit all, and offers the MOTOwi4 solutions to provide a choice for broadband access needs. MOTOwi4 is a broad portfolio of complementary solutions that allows for the delivery and management of wireless broadband connectivity virtually everywhere and all the time, and across all of the necessary Internet Protocol (IP) access technologies.

    Bring Wireless Networks to the Great Indoors with Wi-Fi

    Motorola's Enterprise WLAN solutions enable seamless mobility within buildings and across campuses. Products in the Enterprise WLAN portfolio include thin, full-function and mesh access points, wireless switches and radio frequency (RF) switches that can manage up to 3,000 access points. In addition to Wi-Fi hardware, Enterprise WLAN offers a comprehensive mobility and network management solution and wireless network security suite that includes wireless intrusion protection to help ensure and enforce regulatory compliance.

    Based on industry standards, the Enterprise WLAN portfolio consists of high-performance and scalable enterprise-class products that consolidate management of multiple RF technologies, offer deployment flexibility, and provide enhanced mobility services such as asset tracking and "toll quality" voice.

    "The breadth and depth of the Enterprise WLAN portfolio provides indoor mobility solutions and opportunities across all market segments -- carpeted offices, healthcare, warehousing and distribution, manufacturing, education, retail and government. With the sky literally the limit for outdoor, Motorola's comprehensive wireless solutions makes end-to-end now end-to-endless," said Paladino.

    The Great Indoors Meets the Great Outdoors

    The wi4 Indoor portfolio, including Enterprise WLAN and Broadband over Powerline (BPL) solutions, complement the existing MOTOwi4 portfolio -- comprised of wi4 WiMAX, wi4 Fixed and wi4 Mesh. Wi4 BPL uses the widespread access of the power grid to deliver IP connectivity through electrical lines, transforming a building's internal electrical system into a powerful communications network. Wi4 WiMAX solutions enable service providers to enter new markets or blend their traditional lines of business and position themselves to deliver full suites of voice, video, data, and wireless broadband service to fixed, portable and mobile users. Wi4 Fixed point-to-point solutions provide broadband connectivity across virtually any environment. Wi4 Fixed point-to-multipoint solutions deliver high-speed wireless connectivity for every environment from rural to dense urban. Motorola's wi4 Mesh family of products creates fixed and mobile metro-wide and community-wide coverage for offering public, private, and dedicated public safety connectivity.
