New Delhi, India -- Motorola India today announced the successful completion of Enhanced Data Rate for Global Evolution (EDGE) trials with Hutchison Max Telecom. Commercial deployment is scheduled for later in 2004. Implementation of EDGE on the Hutchison network is part of Motorola's ongoing relationship with this leading telecom operator.

The successful trial of Motorola's EDGE solution demonstrates our ability to provide operators with the right mobile data solution for their market as they migrate to next generation networks and services," said Simon Leung, senior vice president, Motorola, Inc. and general manager of its Global Telecom Solutions Sector in Asia Pacific. EDGE, which enables mobile data speeds up to 240 Kbps, supports mobile applications such as streaming video and will bring about wider use of other data applications like multimedia messaging services (MMS).

"Motorola is a leader in complete, end-to-end telecom solutions and services," Leung continued. "We have successfully worked with India's telecom sector over the last 17 years to help establish industry standards across GSM and CDMA technologies. We are teaming with Hutch, one of India's leading telecom providers, to help them take their network to the next level and further capitalize on the growth opportunities enhanced data rates will provide."

Asim Ghosh, managing director, Hutchison Max Telecom, said: "We were the first operator to offer multi circle GPRS roaming services early last year in India, as also MMS. Upgrading these services to the higher download speeds provided by EDGE is but the next natural step. We are delighted to work with Motorola on a roadmap to bring these services to Hutch subscribers."

EDGE is part of Motorola's comprehensive portfolio that delivers flexibility in line with operators' financial needs. All existing Horizon Macro base stations are EDGE capable through upgrade, evidence of Motorola's intent to provide the lowest total lifetime cost of network ownership. Boosting the data performance of an operator's existing network helps with financial return objectives while better network performance also provides a better end user experience. With Motorola's data portfolio, operators can deliver 3G-like services while maximizing the efficiency of their 2.5G investments.
