Comments of Motorola, Inc.

Motorola, Inc. (“Motorola”) hereby responds to the National Broadband Plan Request for Information (“ NBP RFI”) on the communications requirements of utilities, including but not limited to requirements for Smart Grid.1 Motorola supports the efforts of the Department of Energy (“DOE”) to fully assess utilities’ requirements before the communications solutions for Smart Grid and other requirements are addressed. Based on Motorola’s experience in providing communications systems for utilities, public safety, enterprise, and business users, as well as for commercial carriers and the general public, it is clear that there is no substitute for understanding the user needs first and then applying viable technology solutions to meet those needs.
