WASHINGTON, April 1 /PRNewswire-FirstCall/ -- (FOSE, Booth #2115) Motorola, Inc. (NYSE: MOT) today announced it has expanded its portfolio of MOTOwi4(TM) Fixed Point-to-Point (PTP) Wireless Ethernet Bridges to include the PTP 45600 Integrated and Connectorized models. The systems provide U.S. Federal Government agencies and North Atlantic Treaty Organization (NATO) license holders in the 4.5 GHz band with the bandwidth, performance and reliability they need to support communications in difficult radio-frequency (RF) environments and geographies.

As a rebanded model within the PTP 600 Series family of solutions, the PTP 45600 utilizes the same proven technology that has earned Motorola the number one market share in the unlicensed point-to-point global marketplace. With higher system gain, carrier-class reliability and better spectral efficiency than comparable systems, the PTP 45600 bridges enable U.S. Federal and NATO agencies to establish reliable communications at greater distances, under extreme weather conditions and in harsh RF environments.

"From battlefield communications to border security and video surveillance, Federal and NATO agencies must establish communications in some of the most extreme environments," said Phil Bolt , senior director, Motorola Wireless Broadband Engineering and Product Management. "The PTP 45600 provides a reliable, secure, carrier-class and high performance solution to address the mission critical nature of their operations."

The portable packaging of the wireless bridges make them an excellent tactical solution where there is little time to deploy and tear down a temporary communications network. For longer-term and permanent fixed deployments, the Connectorized model can be configured with external antennas to enable connections up to 124 miles (200 km) in adverse environments, including deep non-line-of-sight and long-range line-of-sight.

The PTP 45600 provides up to 99.999% broadband wireless reliability in very challenging environments, such as traversing miles of obstructed landscapes, crossing large bodies of water or desert terrain, or spanning long-distance line-of-sight paths. The wireless Ethernet bridges also support building-to-building and campus connectivity.

The electronic components of the PTP 45600 models are encased in a robust outdoor enclosure that can withstand temperatures from -40 degrees F to +140 degrees F (-40 degrees C to +60 degrees C) and winds up to 202 mph (325 kph). The small-footprint, lightweight units are fast and easy to install, requiring no special expertise or training. Additionally, the PTP 45600 Integrated and Connectorized models offer selectable channel widths and varying data rates up to 300 Mbps, so operators have the flexibility to configure the system to meet their specific needs.

The PTP 45600 solution is a component of the wi4 Fixed family of broadband solutions, part of the MOTOwi4 portfolio of solutions for public and private networks. The PTP 45600 offers 4.5 GHz licensed capabilities and provides seamless integration with wireless networks that include Motorola's 5.4 and 5.8 GHz Fixed Point-to-Point Wireless Ethernet Bridges as well as other MOTOwi4 solutions including wi4 Fixed PMP, wi4 WIMAX, wi4 Mesh and wi4 Indoor.

The Motorola PTP 45600 Integrated and Connectorized models will be on display at Booth #2115 at the FOSE Conference and Exposition April 1-3 at the Washington Convention Center. For more information on the PTP 45600, visit http://www.motorola.com/ptp.
