Another Win For Motorola's Wireless Messaging System - WMS - Paging Infrastructure in Taiwan.

SINGAPORE--(BUSINESS WIRE)--Nov. 20, 1997--Motorola's Asia-Pacific Paging Networks Division (APPND) today signed a paging infrastructure contract valued at US $1.5 million with Express Telecommunications Company, a regional paging carrier in Taiwan Central region, for a FLEX(TM) protocol-based Multi-Frequency Roaming network. The network operates on the 280 MHz channel and will have an initial capacity of 150,000 paging subscribers. The system is scheduled to be commissioned by the first half of 1998.

In this contract, Motorola will provide its latest state-of-the-art paging infrastructure, the Wireless Messaging System (WMS). It includes the Wireless Message Gateway(TM) paging terminal, featuring one of the highest processing capabilities in the industry; the RF-Conductor(TM), a high capacity paging network controller; and over forty Nucleus(R) paging transmitters with RF-Baton!(TM) network interface.

With this contract, Motorola is providing a high-speed paging network to both an islandwide and a regionwide private operator in Taiwan. Motorola has already provided paging infrastructure to the Chunghwa Telecom Company's Long Distance & Mobile Business Group, an islandwide system carrier that today supports over a million subscribers. Motorola's Wireless Messaging System (WMS) is also deployed in China's recently commissioned nationwide FLEX protocol-based Multi-Frequency Roaming network, as well as two new multi-million dollar contracts in China's Guangxi and Liaoning provinces. Motorola's Wireless Messaging System is fast gaining acceptance and endorsement in the paging infrastructure arena.

Express Telecommunications Company is a newly established regional paging carrier serving the central part of Taiwan, formed by major local cable television operators. Its strategic location, serving Taiwan's Central region, enables it to tie up with other regional operators in the Northern and Southern regions to provide islandwide coverage and roaming services.

"We chose Motorola for its advanced technology, high quality products, highly experienced and superior technical support and for their overall commitment to the Taiwan paging market. Most importantly, Motorola's WMS platform is an open architecture that can be fully integrated with our cable's HFC (Hybrid Fiber Coaxial) network, to provide high quality and diversified services in the near future. Express Telecommunications will utilize Motorola's WMS to provide value-added services to subscribers, including voice mail, emergency paging, repeat paging, delay paging, message transfer, message broadcast, Internet service, and in the future, international roaming as well as voice paging," said Rocky Chien, Director and General Manager of Express Telecommunications Company.

"Motorola is pleased to provide the high-speed paging roaming network to Express Telecommunications. Taiwan is one of our key markets in Asia and we will continue to provide the best engineering and technical support to our customers to help develop their business. In addition, our local parts center will provide the fast turn around time needed to serve the Taiwan paging market," said Jeff Dryjanski, Vice President and General Manager of APPND.

The FLEX Protocol, created by Motorola, is the global de facto standard for high-speed paging. It has been adopted by 18 of the top 20 U.S. service providers, as well as by market-leading providers in Canada, Latin America, Asia, Africa, the Middle East and Europe. The FLEX Protocol is the national standard for high-speed paging in Japan and Korea, and is also a national standard in India and Russia. In addition, it has been adopted by China's MPT (Ministry of Posts and Telecommunications) as the country's nationwide high-speed paging standard. FLEX Protocol-based operators are in all of the world's top ten largest paging markets. There are 141 FLEX technology-based systems in commercial operation in 31 countries, which represents 92% of the world's paging subscriber base.

Motorola is one of the world's leading providers of wireless communications, semiconductors, and advanced electronic systems, components, and services. Major equipment businesses include paging and data communications, cellular telephone, two-way radio, personal communications, automotive, defense and space electronics and computers. Motorola semiconductors power communication devices, computers and millions of other products. Motorola's 1996 sales were $28 billion.
