MOSCOW -- R.M. Telecom, a Russian broadband wireless Internet service provider, has begun deploying Motorola’s Canopy wireless broadband equipment to provide high-speed data and voice to businesses, enterprises and residences in the Moscow region. Motorola customized the frequency range of its Canopy system for the 5.15-5.25 GigaHertz spectrum in order to meet the needs of its customers in Russia.

Motorola supplies Canopy access points and subscriber modules to R.M. Telecom through its Russian distributor, Trialink Group. This equipment is being used to build the first part of R.M. Telecom's new data network in Moscow and the surrounding region. Commercial launch of the first part of this network is expected in early 2005.

R.M. Telecom said it chose a Canopy-based solution because of its anti-interference capability, high performance, ability to support voice over Internet protocol (VoIP) and data services, compact size, and easy installation and maintenance. Today R.M. Telecom's pilot network includes 15 Canopy access points serving several hundred customers delivering both data and VoIP services.

"R.M. Telecom is the first company in Russia to use Motorola’s Canopy systems to provide Internet access, following extensive customization and testing together with Motorola engineers. The equipment has performed well and has proven its high reliability in the tough environmental conditions of a Russian winter. In addition, we like Canopy's compact size, easy installation and worry-free maintenance," said S.F. Berezhnev, chief executive officer of R.M. Telecom.

“Because of unique capabilities of the Canopy products, R.M. Telecom will be able to scale its network for future growth without disruption to the existing network. The Canopy system is a proven reliable point-to-multipoint network. The Canopy system can deliver an aggregate throughput in excess of two megabits per second on a single access point, which is ideal for enterprise, small office and residential broadband applications,” said Tony Kobrinetz, vice president and general manager of Motorola’s Canopy Wireless Broadband group.

“Motorola is dedicated to the Russian market and therefore we provide the scalable solution specially tailored to Russia and complying with Russian legislation,” said Stuart Broome, general director of Motorola CGISS, Russia, Belarus and Armenia.
