Motorola Works with China on Next-Gen Network

Motorola this week signed a cooperative agreement with the Broadcasting and Television Planning Institute under China’s State Administration of Radio, Film and Television (SARFT) to further efforts in creating next-generation broadcast (NGB) services in the country. Although the press release can only be read in Chinese, the gist of the news is that Motorola will provide equipment and professional services to help transform existing one-way networks into two-way networks that support advanced TV applications and high-speed Internet access. SARFT has already announced plans to deploy its next-gen network to 200 million families in ten years, with promised services including HDTV, 3D television, and interactive TV.

China is not a new market for Motorola. The company has been heavily invested in the area for years, and has deployed everything from ONTs, to set-tops, to VOD services. The new agreement under SARFT is just the latest
milestone for Motorola in a region where TV and broadband services continue to undergo massive change.
