MOTOROLA CONTINUES SUCCESS IN CHINA; GROUP RECEIVES ITS LARGEST CHINA ORDER FROM SHANGHAI POST AND TELECOMMUNICATION

 ARLINGTON HEIGHTS, Ill., Jan. 18 /PRNewswire/ -- Motorola (NYSE: MOT) announced today that its Cellular Infrastructure Group (CIG) received its largest China cellular system order to date. The Shanghai Post and Telecommunication Administration (SPTA) awarded Motorola's International Cellular Infrastructure Division (ICID) an expansion contract to add to its existing Motorola system. A formal signing ceremony and banquet was held Jan. 16 in honor of the occasion.
 The contract will bring the system total to more than 30 cell sites extending cellular coverage in the city of Shanghai. The expansion will include the first EMX 2500 high capacity switch to be deployed in China. The EMX 2500 is based on DSC Communications Corporation's DCS DEX 600C cellular switch technology. The high capacity EMX 2500 switch will permit SPTA to provide service to more than 40,000 subscribers.
 "The SPTA has demonstrated their continued confidence in Motorola technology," said Pertti Johansson, vice president and director of Motorola's International Cellular Infrastructure Division, CIG. "This award signifies expansion of the cellular network into one of China's largest potential markets. The project will help the Shanghai Post and Telecommunication Administration prepare for the East Asian Games scheduled later this year."
 Shanghai was selected as the site of the East Asian Games and is expected to draw many tourists for this major event. Shanghai, the most populous of the three autonomous cities in China with a population of approximately 13 million, was one of the first cities in China to deploy cellular communications. SPTA is the sole operator of all cellular communications services in the city of Shanghai.
 Throughout 1992, Motorola ICID dramatically increased its cellular infrastructure presence in China and made new inroads into Africa and the Middle East. China represents the fourth Asian country to place orders for the EMX 2500 switch. Over 120 of these high capacity switches are installed worldwide.
 DSC Communications (NASDAQ-NMS: DIGI) is a leading designer, developer, manufacturer and marketer of digital switching, transmission and private network system products for the worldwide telecommunications marketplace.
 Motorola is the world's leading designer, manufacturer and supplier of cellular systems, infrastructure equipment and subscriber products. The company is also one of the leading providers of electronic equipment, system components and services for worldwide markets. The company's dedication to quality earned it the first prestigious Malcolm Baldrige National Quality Award, the highest level of national recognition for quality that a United States company can receive.
