ARLINGTON HEIGHTS, Ill. -- The Home & Networks Mobility business of Motorola, Inc. (NYSE: MOT) today announced the launch of its Long Term Evolution (LTE) Evolved Packet Core (EPC) solution - the Wireless Broadband Core (WBC) 700 portfolio. The Motorola WBC 700 solution is comprised of Motorola's mobility management entity (MME), packet and serving gateways (P-GW and S-GW), and a policy and charging rules function server (PCRF).

The WBC 700 portfolio, which helps operators meet the rapid growth in subscriber demands for mobile broadband by giving them the opportunity to increase revenue while substantially reducing cost per bit, is scheduled to be available in late 2009.

The EPC is a new foundation for next generation mobile broadband that provides a core network to support hosted applications, heavy multimedia content and high-speed Internet connectivity on the go. Motorola's award-winning EPC dedicated control and bearer core architecture that includes its industry leading MME, gives operators the flexibility, performance and capacity they'll need to effectively operate their future LTE networks.

"LTE will be about personal media, with the ability to access all of your content, share it and take it with you wherever you go," said Fred Gabbard, vice president, product management, Wireless Networks, Home & Networks Mobility. "Building upon Motorola's mobile broadband experience in OFDM network deployments, Motorola's WBC 700 portfolio completes our end-to-end LTE solution, enabling us to provide a seamless and flexible path to LTE with a high degree of future proofing for the service provider at a reduced cost of ownership."
