Beceem and Motorola Accelerate Availability of 4G Chip Solution

Collaborative Effort Will Enhance Product Performance

BARCELONA, Spain, Feb. 17 — (PRNewswire) — Mobile World Congress -- Beceem Communications, the leading provider of 4G chips, and Motorola (NYSE: MOT) announced today that both companies are working together to pair Motorola's advanced 4G WiMAX infrastructure with Beceem's upcoming BCS500 4G chip.

The BCS500 4G chip supports WiMAX 16e and 16m as well as UE Class 4 LTE capabilities in both the TDD and FDD configurations, including plans for handoff between WiMAX and LTE. The optimization of TDD and FDD coexistence for LTE is important for many operators with disparate spectrum holdings. This WiMAX chip is expected to be the first to support TDD and FDD flavors for LTE with future plans for LTE-to-WiMAX roaming.

"The know-how gained during the development and deployment of our leading 4G WiMAX solution has contributed to our work with Beceem to offer this advanced chipset solution," said Bruce Brda, senior vice president, Motorola Enterprise Mobility Solutions and Networks business. "We look forward to the opportunities provided by this capability to address market demand."

"Our 4G-WiMAX chips are powering every device in Clearwire's network, and we would not have been able to achieve this level of performance and market success without our collaboration with Motorola," said Babu Mandava, CEO of Beceem Communications. "We are pleased to enter the 4G-LTE market later this year with our new BCS500 4G-LTE/WiMAX chip that will become the performance benchmark of the 4G industry."
