Schaumburg, Ill., and Palo Alto, Calif. – Motorola Inc. and Sun Microsystems Inc. signed a 10-year agreement June 9 that will allow Motorola to deliver Internet protocol-based, high-availability network servers, base station controllers, and base stations for wireless networks.

The agreement combines wireless communications platforms from Motorola's Network Solutions Sector (NSS) and carrier-grade hardware platforms from Motorola Computer Group (MCG) with Sun's software solutions. This high-availability wireless network architecture will be deployed by other Motorola businesses that design and manufacture wireless network infrastructure products for satellite, paging, two-way radio, and Internet networking customers.

Motorola also plans to buy up to $1 billion in board- and system-level hardware from MCG; software and hardware from Sun; and custom hardware from Motorola NSS. Sun and MCG will independently offer their software and hardware architectures to other telecommunications and enterprise customers. These architectures are expected to feature an open development environment that allows wireless service providers and commercial developers to quickly respond to demands for IP-based voice, data and video services.
