HP Supplies Spectrum Monitoring Solution to the Republic of Zimbabwe; As Zimbabwe Expands its Wireless Communications Infrastructure, HP Helps Create an Efficient System That Detects Unlicensed Users.

GENEVA--(BUSINESS WIRE)--Oct. 4, 1995--In the Republic of Zimbabwe, Hewlett-Packard Company will play a vital role in meeting the country's spectrum monitoring needs for detecting and identifying unlicensed users of its airwaves, HP today announces here at Telecom '95, an international trade show.

HP will act as a subcontractor to Technology for Communications International of Sunnyvale, Calif., which has received a contract from Zimbabwe for an ITU-compliant spectrum monitoring and management system. HP will provide computers and networking hardware, test and measurement equipment, and a portion of the operating software for the system. The value of the agreement was not disclosed.

The spectrum monitoring and management system automatically detects and identifies unlicensed users, ensuring that a country's limited radio spectrum is available to authorized users. Under terms of the contract, the system will be operational in Zimbabwe in 1997. Demand for new wireless communications and monitoring systems is expected to be strong in countries without extensive telecommunications capabilities.

"In particular, we expect this technology will be widely used by many countries that are expanding their wireless-communication infrastructures as a means of strengthening their economies," said Scott Wright, general manager of HP's Santa Rosa (Calif.) Systems Division. "Our expertise in measurement, communication and computation allows us to provide fully integrated, automated, nationwide networked solutions for applications such as regulatory compliance, interference detection and spectrum occupancy -- all of which are critical to the success of an economically viable network." As part of its strategy to promote standards-based technologies, HP is increasing its focus on ITU spectrum monitoring and management solutions.

Hewlett-Packard Company is a leading global manufacturer of computing, communications and measurement products and services recognized for excellence in quality and support. HP has 99,900 employees and had revenue of $25 billion in its 1994 fiscal year. -0-
