AT&T Wireless Group (NYSE: AWE) and Motorola (NYSE: MOT) announced they will collaborate on speeding the delivery of high-speed data and voice services to homes and small businesses around the world using fixed wireless technology.

An agreement signed recently by the two companies detailed plans to develop, trial and license AT&T Wireless' patented fixed wireless digital broadband technology ("Project Angel"). Under those plans, AT&T will provide Motorola with a temporary license to supply equipment to local service providers outside the United States. The equipment will eventually serve as a competitive local communications infrastructure in international markets. Trial locations for deployment of the services will be announced during the third quarter of this year.

A major strategic outcome of this technology alliance will be to develop products that meet global fixed wireless standards using the AT&T Wireless fixed wireless platform.
