European network services provider TDF has selected Motorola Inc. to design and deploy 802.16e WiMAX networks for several regions in France where HDRR, a TDF subsidiary, holds WiMAX frequency licenses.

The three-year frame agreement with TDF follows an initial pilot at the end of 2006 and successful deployments in Loiret, Sarthe and Limousin regions which enabled the roll-out of innovative networks enabling the delivery of high speed broadband access to end users.

TDF and its partners, including local governments, deliver a wholesale broadband service to retail ISPs, which in turn provide broadband data as well VoIP services to businesses and consumers. By selecting Motorola's 802.16e WiMAX solution, TDF customers will enjoy advantages of WiMAX services in the future.

"With this partnership we are confident that we can quickly and effectively help our partner operators and local governments to bring next-generation broadband services to the end-users and enterprises of rural regions, and those that are not currently serviced by fixed broadband," said Madeleine Giovachini, head of TDF's telecom business unit.

Motorola provides deployment, integration and support services to TDF in addition to WiMAX equipment such as WiMAX Access Points (the WAP 400 series), and outdoor and indoor customer premises equipment such as the CPEo 400 series and CPEi 200 series.

"The benefits of WiMAX technology are clear," said Joe Cozzolino, corporate VP and general manager, Motorola home and networks mobility EMEA. "Operators selecting WiMAX have the potential to offer cost- effective, scalable broadband connections to regions not yet served by fixed broadband infrastructure. That represents a compelling package for operators such as TDF looking to expand into new markets."
