AMSTERDAM -- The Networks business of Motorola, Inc. (NYSE: MOT) today announced it has teamed with Imagine Communication Group, Ireland’s major supplier of WiMAX services to consumers and businesses, to offer its USBw 200 mobile WiMAX USB adaptor as part of a new service from Imagine targeting home office and small businesses. The USBw 200 will be available in Ireland in August 2010.

Offering true plug & play operation, Motorola’s USBw 200 provides super-fast mobile broadband over WiMAX with improved uplink and downlink performance. Key features such as transmit switched diversity for better uploading performance and a network entry power boost for fast network entry at longer range make the USBw 200 ideal for the small office/home office (SoHo) and small to medium enterprise (SME) markets as well as consumers who prefer mobile WiMAX over other wireless services.

“With the USBw 200, we can target a new segment of SoHo and SME customers as well as consumers who prefer to use a WiMAX device in covered public areas,” said Sean Bolger, CEO of Imagine Communication Group. “This is great news for both Irish consumers and businesses that have a real choice in terms of provisioning mobile broadband technologies, as well as for Ireland, which is among the leaders in embracing mobile WiMAX technologies.”
