Motorola the First Paging Infrastructure Supplier to Receive Official SS7 Type Approval Certificate in China.

SINGAPORE--(BUSINESS WIRE)--June 10, 1998--Motorola's Asia-Pacific Paging Networks Division (APPND) today announced that it has officially received the Signaling System Number 7 (SS7) Type Approval Certificate from China Telecom for its line of paging infrastructure products. Motorola is the first paging infrastructure manufacturer to apply for and receive such a certification.

According to the validation testing report from China Telecom's Telecommunication Metric Centre (TMC), Motorola's Wireless Messaging Gateway (WMG) paging terminal meets all the technical specifications of Number 7 Signaling for China National Telephone's Network requirements.

Signaling System Number 7 is an international standard of Common Channel Signaling, recommended by ANSI and CCITT, and is commonly used in telecommunications networks throughout the world. It also meets multiple telecom service providers' requirements to support PSTN, ISDN, Mobile Telecom network operation's maintenance and administration.

For paging operators, the main benefits are the reduction in trunk setup time, the ability to use the Caller Line Identification (CLI) feature to initiate numeric messaging, increasing the system capacity and flow of handling information, thus reducing the number of trunks which in turn lowers the carriers' operating costs and benefits end users.

Motorola's Wireless Messaging System (WMS) with the SS7 signaling trunk interface will be deployed in over a hundred cities in China including Beijing, Shanghai, Nanjing, Shenyang, Changchun, Hangzhou, Hefei, Nanning, Changsha, Nanchang, Xian, Kun Ming, Hohhot, Tai Yuan, Lan Zhou, Yin Chuan and Urumqi capital cities. It also extends to the major cities in the seven provinces including Henan, Ningxia, Zhejiang, Liaoning, Guangxi, Yunnan, and Sichuan provinces to provide FLEX(tm) high-speed paging and multi-frequency roaming to over 10 million subscribers in the country.

"Motorola's paging system, having undergone rigorous testing, has been awarded the first official SS7 certification in China. We are glad to be the first paging infrastructure supplier to be awarded this important certification. We will continue to ensure our paging infrastructure meets China Telecom's highest quality standard," said Mr. Jeff Dryjanski, Vice President and General Manager of Motorola's APPND.

The WMS paging infrastructure platform 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 hundreds of Nucleus(R) paging transmitters with RF-Baton!(tm) network interface.

The FLEX Protocol, created by Motorola, is the global de facto standard for one-way high-speed paging. Adopted by operators in all of the top ten world's largest paging markets, Motorola's FLEX paging protocols include FLEX one-way, ReFLEX(tm) two-way and InFLEXion(tm) voice transmission technologies.

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 its nationwide high-speed paging standard and it is included in an ITU (International Telecommunication Union) Recommendation.

In addition to the protocols, the FLEX Technologies include a robust product portfolio of pagers, components, infrastructure, test equipment, application protocols, and software. There are over 160 FLEX technology-based systems in commercial operation in more than 30 countries worldwide.

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 1997 sales were $29.8 billion.
