Motorola, Inc. (NYSE: MOT) today announced that it has signed a distribution agreement with Tai Full Technologies Corporation that will enable wider access to Motorola’s broad range of embedded communications computing products to original equipment manufacturers (OEMs) in Taiwan.
The agreement covers the distribution of Motorola’s standards-based blades, modules, shelves, application-ready platforms and communications servers based on industry standards such as AdvancedTCA®, MicroTCATM, CompactPCI and VMEbus.
„The market for communications computing equipment used in a range of industries, including telecommunications and industrial automation, has been expanding rapidly and competition has brought more choice and better services to customers at lower prices,“ said Bill Rojas, Research Director for IDC’s Asia/Pacific Communications Research. „Such an agreement will allow equipment manufacturers to take advantage of standards-based common platforms that are designed to help them deliver differentiated new services and applications to the market quickly, while improving costs, availability and performance.“
“Motorola is a world-class provider of embedded solutions—offering one of the industry’s broadest portfolios spanning AdvancedTCA, MicroTCA, AdvancedMC, CompactPCI and VMEbus technologies as well as comprehensive software offerings,” said Billy Tsai, president of Tai Full Technology. “Using Motorola’s early investments in ATCA and MicroTCA, Tai Full expects to be able to bring more cost-effective, scalable, and highly available embedded solutions to our customers.”
“Tai Full has an industry-wide reputation as a respected electronics distributor in Taiwan,” stated Stephen Dow, vice president and general manager, Embedded Communications Computing, Motorola, Inc. “We are pleased to be working with them to bring our embedded technology to Taiwan’s fast growing communications computing market.”
