[4G multimedia architecture to be called MOTO-Media.]

Tokyo and Palo Alto, Calif. -- NTT DoCoMo, Inc. and Hewlett-Packard Company (NYSE: HWP) today announced a joint research effort aimed at improving multimedia delivery and network applications over fourth-generation (4G) wireless broadband networks.

NTT DoCoMo, the pioneer of W-CDMA wireless broadband and i-mode services, and HP, with leadership in advanced server technologies, network infrastructure and middleware platforms, are calling their 4G multimedia architecture MOTO-Media.

MOTO-Media is expected to enable high-performance streaming of multimedia content to mobile users based on agent technology, optimal use of network resources and scalable media coding methods.

The collaboration will also explore new mobile service concepts in which people, places and things would be able to interact, bridging the real and cyber worlds.

"We have seen an enormous increase in DoCoMo's i-mode subscribers," said Keiji Tachikawa, chief executive officer of NTT DoCoMo. "This means that our future mobile multimedia services, contemplated in VISION 2010, will require a new application platform for the fourth generation era. HP Labs has some unique capabilities in this area that we intend to explore ."

"This is a significant step toward the realization of mobile e-services," said Carly Fiorina, HP chairman, president and CEO. "Our leadership in technologies is a perfect complement to NTT DoCoMo's pioneering work in wireless broadband."

Under the agreement, DoCoMo and HP will finish the shared study of basic technology by 2003.
