LAS VEGAS -- The Networks business of Motorola, Inc. (NYSE: MOT), the worldwide leader in developing and deploying WiMAX 802.16e networks and consumer devices, today announced that CaribServe, a wireless broadband service provider based on the island of St. Maarten / St. Martin in the Northeastern Caribbean, has signed a two-year agreement with Motorola for WiMAX infrastructure, devices and services. The island-based operator plans to launch WiMAX service later this year to deliver higher throughput via fixed, portable and nomadic data services to its subscribers.

CaribServe is a long-time Motorola customer that has been providing fixed wireless broadband service in St. Maarten / St. Martin using Motorola's point-to-multipoint wireless broadband access network solutions since 2004. CaribServe is also Motorola's first customer to select the recently-announced Motorola ASN 1000 WiMAX gateway.

CaribServe also selected Motorola's NBBS remote device management software platform to manage the customer premises equipment (CPE) that its customers will use with the new WiMAX service. NBBS is a solution that allows service providers to expand broadband service revenues while reducing operational and support costs through automated service provisioning and comprehensive device management.

"When Motorola developed its ASN 1000 WiMAX gateway, it gave us the opportunity to offer faster WiMAX-based services to our customers at a low-cost entry point to build-out the new network and provide an even greater broadband experience to our island's residents and tourists," said Roy Richardson, CaribServe's co-founder and general manager.
