Motorola cleans out closest, reorganizes, again

Motorola announced plans for another reorg, this time in its home and networks mobility unit. The division is the company’s second largest business unit after its flailing mobile phone unit. It supplies carriers and cable companies with networking equipment and currently is organized into product units including cable set-top boxes, modems, cable infrastructure and networking gear.

Reports say the reorganization will divide these businesses into three units: one for cable set-top boxes and digital video equipment, Internet-based video and modems; and then the company’s networks business will be divided in two units: one for traditional wireless equipment for carriers, and another focusing on next-generation technologies including WiMax and LTE.
