3 Big data security analytics techniques

Motorola's Q3 earnings climbed 66 per cent on the back of sales of advanced mobile phones, chips and digital TV set top boxes.

Profit rose to $598 million from $361 million in Q3 last year. Sales grew 18 per cent to $9.49 billion, up from $8.06 billion.

Sales in the personal-communications segment, the cell phone part of the business, only grew by four per cent to $3.2 billion. New orders fell 23 per cent. The company is trying to increase margins at the expense of revenue.

But revenues in the broadband group climbed 47 per cent to $917 million with orders up 41 per cent. This division sells digital set-top boxes. ®
