Celcore announces the availability of Celcore's GlobalHub for Motorola's PPS residential products.

MEMPHIS, Tenn.--(BUSINESS WIRE)--Sept. 6, 1995--Celcore announced the availability of Celcore's GlobalHub(TM) to work with Motorola's Personal Phone Series (PPS)(TM) products announced earlier this year.

The combination of Celcore's GlobalHub and Motorola's PPS products enables cellular carriers to offer "one number" personal communication service now through the existing cellular and public switched telephone networks (PSTN).

Celcore's GlobalHub is an advanced IS-41 application processor which provides mobility management functions and PSTN interfaces using industry standard protocols. Easy to install, operate and maintain, the GlobalHub is scaleable to meet the needs of operators both large and small with modular expansion. For over a year, Motorola and Celcore have worked closely with cellular operators to define the new residential application for cellular users through joint development and standards activities.

The base of Motorola's PPS personal phone communicates with Celcore's GlobalHub through a subscriber's existing telephone line. The GlobalHub uses the Home Location Register to update the location of the Motorola PPS phone handset, allowing cellular calls to follow a cellular subscriber. The Motorola PPS handset functions as a cordless phone when within range of the personal base. It uses cellular frequencies, and can automatically reroute the subscriber's cellular calls to the residential number through the PSTN. When outside the range of the personal base, the handset can use regular cellular systems.

"We are delighted to work with Motorola to extend the reach of cellular numbers into the residential environment," said Robert Goodman, Celcore CEO. "Motorola is the global leader in wireless communications and we are very pleased with the opportunity to work with such a recognized leader," Goodman said. He added that "Motorola's PPS product is an exciting evolution in wireless communication."

Based in Memphis, Tenn., Celcore develops and provides advanced wireless switching and networking solutions worldwide. With an open and distributed architecture, Celcore's wireless solutions are designed for cost-effective implementation to address a broad spectrum of market needs, including AMPS, TDMA, and ETACS cellular systems; microsystems; wireless PBX, IS-41/MAP mobility management; GSM systems; and PCS systems.

Motorola is one of the world's leading providers of wireless communications, semiconductors, and advanced electronic systems and services. Major equipment businesses include cellular telephone, two-way radio, paging and data communications, personal communications, automotive, defense and space electronics and computers. Communication devices, computers and millions of consumer products are powered by Motorola semiconductors. Motorola's 1994 sales were $22.2 billion.
