Motorola wins WiMax deal in France

Motorola has been selected by TDF a leading European provider of network services to broadcasters and telecom operators, to design and deploy 802.16e WiMax networks for several regions in France where HDRR, a TDF subsidiary, holds WiMax frequency licenses.

The three-year frame agreement with TDF follows an initial pilot at the end of 2006 and successful deployments in Loiret, Sarthe and Limousin regions which enabled the roll-out of innovative networks enabling the delivery of high speed broadband access to end users.

TDF and its partners, including local governments, deliver a wholesale broadband service to retail ISPs which in turn provide broadband data as well voice over IP services to businesses and consumers.

By selecting Motorola's 802.16e WiMax solution, TDF customers will enjoy advantages of the new WiMax services in the future.

Motorola provides deployment, integration and support services to TDF in addition to WiMAX equipment such as WiMAX Access Points (the WAP 400 series), and outdoor and indoor customer premises equipment such as the CPEo 400 series and CPEi 200 series.
