Is fixed broadband access still strategic to Motorola’s business?
Rumors have swirled recently that Motorola may be evaluating a potential sale of its Home and Networks business division. It is a good time to examine Motorola’s recent broadband access wins and new product launches in its CMTS and PON portfolio (part of the “Home” in Home and Networks) to determine whether broadband access is still a strategic component of Motorola’s business. Ovum believes that Motorola’s fixed broadband access portfolio, notwithstanding the challenges it faces, remains an important companion portfolio to its video infrastructure business. Combined with the wireless infrastructure portfolio, fixed broadband access remains an important strategic component of Motorola’s suitability as a vendor in next-generation access network rollouts worldwide.
