Motorola Touts Report

TEMPE, Ariz. -- New research from the Yankee Group reports that leading Tier 1 telecommunications equipment manufacturers (TEMs) estimate that they can realize significant improvements in project development costs as well as an estimated 30 percent time-to-market improvement from using standards-based communications servers. Yankee Group's analysis estimated a 31.5 percent total cost reduction when using the example of adopting a standards-based communications server to build a typical piece of mobile core infrastructure equipment.

The TEMs interviewed for the survey ranked Motorola's Embedded Communications Computing business (NYSE: MOT - News) highest for ability to deliver fully-integrated communications servers. The report analyzes the adoption of communications servers based on industry standards such as AdvancedTCA®, Carrier Grade Linux and Service Availability(TM) Forum and uses TEMs developing mobile core infrastructure and IP Multimedia Subsystem (IMS) equipment as an example. Yankee Group's research consisted of primary research with leading Tier 1 TEMs and computing vendors and in-house intelligence.

"The adoption of open, standards-based computing platforms within Tier 1 TEMs is poised to hit an inflection point during the next business cycle of 12 to 24 months," said Brian Partridge, senior analyst of the Yankee Group. "As our report shows, the time is now for TEMs to modify their product roadmaps and business processes to make room for standards-based communications servers. Motorola's ranking in this study reflects its holistic approach, which includes a comprehensive communications server line of products, an extensive portfolio of professional services, leadership within industry consortia and commitment to a strong ecosystem."
