Motorola acquires RadioFrame’s iDEN business

To enhance push-to-talk technology and portfolio of multi-channel base stations

By CBR Staff Writer

Motorola has acquired RadioFrame Networks’ Integrated Digital Enhanced Network (iDEN) business, which will be integrated into its home & networks mobility business. RadioFrame is a provider of radio access services for tier 1 mobile operators, and iDEN technology. The terms of the transaction were not disclosed.

Motorola said iDEN products will enhance its portfolio for multi-channel base stations, optimised to support non-contiguous spectrum allocations in the special mobile radio (SMR) business that are common outside North America.

For Motorola’s iDEN customers, RadioFrame’s base stations can manage non-contiguous spectrum channels, and its technology offers a lower cost architecture with an efficient use of power amplifiers, a smaller physical footprint and flexibility in site management. RadioFrame’s iDEN technology also offers lower power consumption, lowering operating expenses, the company said.

In addition, the acquisition will further enhance push-to-talk technology roadmap plans for strengthened operational capability, end-user functionality and cost-effective expansion, Motorola added.
