Motorola Expands VIVO's Delivery of CDMA 3G EV-DO High Speed Mobile Services

SAO PAULO, Brazil, March 9 /PRNewswire-FirstCall/ -- Motorola, Inc. today announced the CDMA 3G EV-DO network expansion for VIVO. This development enables VIVO to effectively manage large increases in high speed mobile data network traffic for Brasilia and Curitiba, two Brazilian cities where VIVO brings its third generation services. As well as supporting increased traffic and enabling deployment of new applications and services, the network expansion is designed to provide mobile data subscribers with faster access to Internet, m-commerce and company Intranets.

"Motorola delivered the industry's first commercial CDMA network in 1995, and continues to promote the evolution of this technology, which at one time provided only basic voice, to today's networks that give subscribers access to high-speed mobile broadband," Mauricio Gomes - General Director of Motorola comments. "This expansion for VIVO is a continuation of a more than ten year relationship and supports their subscribers' demands for more and more advanced mobile services enabling seamless communication, regardless of application."

"To meet the increased demand of high-speed services from our existing network, allowing our clients to use third generation services in high speed, we are pioneering and offering next generation applications. We are making history on mobile telephony in Brazil, as for example, the TV transmission on cell phones, launched in 7th July, 2005," said Javier Rodriquez, technology vice-president, VIVO.

According to the latest budget figures examined by leading technology market analyst ABI Research, many mobile operators worldwide will commit increased capital expenditure to network expansion this year. The CAPEX data, collected for the company's new "Mobile Operator Performance Benchmarks Database", reflects increased mobile telephone usage and growing saturation in mature markets.
