KUALA LUMPUR, Malaysia, Oct. 29 /PRNewswire/ -- Innovation leader shares technology and experience to assist students and faculties in their study of advanced wireless broadband technologies

KUALA LUMPUR, Malaysia, Oct. 29 /PRNewswire-FirstCall/ -- Motorola Inc. (NYSE: MOT) today announced that Motorola Technology Sdn Bhd ("Motorola Penang") has set up a new MMU-Motorola Wireless Broadband Technology Lab at Multimedia University ("MMU"), Cyberjaya, providing a conducive wireless network environment for students and faculty members to conduct applied research on the latest wireless broadband technologies. The Wireless Broadband Technology Lab is the first of its kind in Malaysia and supports MMU's goal to "Enable the Knowledge Society through WiMAX".

The lab at MMU is Motorola's latest contribution to the education community, strengthening the company's support to human capital development at universities around the world. The Wireless Broadband Technology Lab provides academics and researchers with an opportunity to gain hands-on experience with various fixed, nomadic and mobile MOTOwi4(TM) wireless broadband technologies and applications, keeping them up-to-date with the latest developments.

Mr. Yew Tian Tek, managing director of Motorola Penang said, "Motorola always looks for opportunities to collaborate with universities in innovative technology areas in which MMU has distinct competencies. Motorola decided to join force with MMU as the two parties have enjoyed a long-term and constructive working relationship over the past 10 years. We also share a mutual appreciation of the advantages and benefits of Wireless Broadband Access technology including WIMAX. The Lab strategically aligns with MMU's plans to further expand its WiMAX research interests."

"As an innovation leader in wireless and broadband technologies, we believe we have a corporate responsibility to share our knowledge and expertise in Wireless Broadband Access technology with local universities as part of the industry-university technology collaboration program. Transferring Motorola's know-how and technical expertise to MMU is a crucial step toward achieving our objectives," Yew added. "Through this Lab, we hope to share Motorola's experience in developing various innovative wireless broadband technologies such as WiMAX with students and faculty members."

Dr. Lee Sze Wei, Dean, Faculty of Engineering, Multimedia University said, "MMU's vision is to be a premier university that propagates the generation and dissemination of knowledge in cutting edge technologies. In order to support our strong research culture and deliver quality academic programmes based on state-of-the-art R&D, we need support from industry leaders like Motorola who not only supply us with equipment but also knowledge and experience. We are glad to work with Motorola on this project, and we look forward to collaborating and forging even stronger ties with Motorola in the future."

Motorola is sponsoring MOTOwi4 wireless broadband equipment including Canopy(R), MOTOMESH(TM) Duo, wi4 WiMAX access points and customer premises equipments (CPEs) for the Lab. The infrastructure provides an opportunity for faculty members and students to explore new frontiers in state-of-the-art wireless technologies, such as discovering new applications and developing new software.

Motorola's systems serve multiple purposes for MMU. The MOTOMESH Duo system enables a WiFi service which covers indoor and outdoor areas of MMU's Cyberjaya campus. It is a full community based service as the installation and maintenance of the system is carried out by a team formed by MMU students and staff. Motorola's WiMAX system will allow MMU to conduct various wireless broadband related training and research activities.

In addition, Motorola is establishing a seamless campus-wide wireless broadband network by using its MOTOMESH Duo and Canopy network solutions, allowing more than 10,000 MMU students and faculty members to access the Internet anywhere in the MMU campus.

MMU began the set up of the Wireless Broadband Technology Lab and deployment of the MOTOMESH Duo network in June 2008. Motorola is also training MMU staff and students to maintain and manage the Canopy, MOTOMESH Duo and WiMAX equipment. By working closely with Motorola's engineering team, MMU's team has an opportunity to learn first-hand from technical experts in setting up state-of-the-art wireless broadband networks.

Motorola is a global leader in mobile WiMAX. It now has 23 contracts for commercial WiMAX networks in 18 countries around the world. For more information about Motorola wi4 WiMAX solutions, please visit:
