With Broadband World Forum and IBC this week, and 4G World next week, there’s a lot of conference news starting to trickle out. And stay tuned, because that trickle looks to turn into a flood.
To start, Motorola announced yesterday (not everyone was on holiday…) that Czech operator Magnalink has signed a deal for Motorola GPON technology and IP set-tops. The GPON win in particular is interesting to me as it signals continued interest in fiber-to-the-home technologies worldwide and continuing support for GPON in particular.
Also from Broadband World Forum comes news today that Motorola has received an International Engineering Consortium (IEC) InfoVision award for the company’s CDMA 9100 Series femtocell. While news of femtocells has faded since the initial wave of enthusiasm, clearly development continues.
And finally, in advance of 4G World next week, Motorola has an announcement out this morning outlining the company’s participation in the event including keynote presentations. This is the first year of 4G World since its initial incarnation as WiMAX World. The newly designated conference will focus on WiMAX and LTE, and Motorola will showcase both technologies as well.
