Motorola Markets In-Building, Powerline Solution in Europe

Motorola announced commercial availability in Europe of its Powerline MU, a broadband solution targeted at multi-unit (MU) buildings. The solution delivers broadband access through a building's existing electrical network.

The Powerline MU solution includes a Powerline MU Gateway which converts the Ethernet signal to a HomePlug protocol and the signal is then injected directly into a building's electrical system. Users can then connect their computer or router to a Motorola Powerline modem that is plugged into a standard electrical outlet to gain access to the Internet.

The Powerline MU will be offered as part of Motorola's MOTOwi4 portfolio, which can be combined with Motorola's wi4 Fixed wi4 WiMAX solutions for backhaul.
