Motorola to Include Starent's Platform in its LTE Portfolio

Motorola will resell Starent Networks' multimedia core networking solutions as part of the Motorola LTE (Long Term Evolution)/SAE (System Architecture Evolution) portfolio. The Starent Networks products fulfill the functional requirements defined in the SAE or Evolved Packet Core (EPC) standards.

The companies said Starent's solutions help smooth migration to LTE for both CDMA 1X/DO-A and GSM/UMTS operators. Mobile operators are looking for solutions that deliver on today's requirements for 3G mobile broadband, while also positioning them for a migration to mobile ultra broadband networks. Starent's solutions are capable of supporting multiple functions in a single node, allowing a single platform to concurrently act as a 2G/3G and 4G node.
