Google to acquire Motorola Mobility (Motorola’s smartphone business)

On January 4, 2011 Motorola, Inc. separated into 2 distinct, independent companies: Motorola Mobility Holdings, Inc. (MMI) and Motorola Solutions, Inc. (MSI). Each company is traded on the New York Stock Exchange under its own ticker symbol.

  • Motorola Mobility (MMI) is focused on the consumer space with smartphone and cable television equipment solutions.

  • Motorola Solutions (MSI) delivers business communications solutions, including WLAN, for commercial enterprise and the government sector.  Our joint technology agreement is held with MSI as opposed to Motorola Mobility.

On August 15, 2011, Google and MMI reached a definitive agreement whereby Google will acquire Motorola Mobility for its smartphone and cable solutions. Since our technology agreement is with MSI, there will be no impact whatsoever to  Brocade’s OEM relationship and WLAN development plans. Rest assured our partnership with Motorola Solutions remains strong and we will continue to support Brocade WLAN solutions.
