Summary
  • Motorola has consented to take on single ownership of Ardis by purchasing IBM's stake for $35 million in the first wireless packet data network in the US. Both companies had equal stakes and indicated interest in being the sole owner of Ardis, even though it is hampered by slow growth. IBM eventually decided that it was not interested in managing the seven-year-old company that was formed for IBM's field service personnel and became a commercial enterprise in 1990. Sources at Ardis believe the Motorola acquisition will have a positive affect on the company in terms tactics and strategy. The company will function as an independent subsidiary of Motorola's Wireless Data Group and its existing management structure will stay the same. Significant to Ardis' preliminary success will be the start-up of its Radio Data-Link Access Protocol, which will allow faster throughput in densely populated regions.
