Celebrating 10th anniversary of MOTOTRBO in 2017

Seoul, June 14, 2017 – Motorola Solutions’ (NYSE:MSI) Next-Generation MOTOTRBO TM radio portfolio marks successful implementations across a range of sectors in Korea including fire-fighting, petrochemicals, oil & gas and hospitality.

This portfolio of digital two-way radios is equipped with new features that help industries avoid downtime, increase productivity and reduce costs. This includes Wi-Fi connectivity that can help save workers hundreds of hours in lost time while delivering highly secure, reliable and cost-efficient professional two-way radio communications.

In enterprise environments, the process of updating communications equipment can be time-intensive. For a workforce of 350, for example, this can lead to more than 400 hours of lost time. Next-generation MOTOTRBO radios feature an integrated Wi-Fi solution that helps reduce the update process to a matter of minutes by eliminating the need for employees in the field or warehouse floor to physically drop off equipment at the office to receive software upgrades. Coupled with 29 hours of battery life, this means workers can spend more time focusing on the task at hand.

“The next-generation MOTOTRBO radio portfolio reflects the features and functionality our customers have been asking for and help them enhance productivity, efficiency and worker safety,” says Mike O’Connor Vice President, Radio Channel Sales, Asia Pacific, Motorola Solutions.

“Features such as man-down alerts and indoor location tracking are crucial for working in hazardous areas,” he continues.

Motorola Solutions is also introducing Capacity Max, a new feature-rich, next-generation MOTOTRBO trunking solution in Korea this year. Trunking is used to increase radio system efficiency by temporarily allocating a channel from a pool of available channels when needed. The new system provides better security and is easier to manage. Capacity Max is scalable from small, single-site systems to large, complex projects that demand greater capacity (up to 3,000 users per site) and higher levels of performance from voice and data-intensive communications deployments.

“Capacity Max allows users to expand the capacity, reach and capability of two-way radios, and gives users the flexibility to expand their networks and applications to meet evolving needs,” says HY Kim Area Sales Lead, Korea, Motorola Solutions.

“At Motorola Solutions, we have established a smooth migration path from analog and smaller MOTOTRBO solutions to Capacity Max to minimise cost and operational impact for existing customers who want to upgrade,” he adds.

Next-generation MOTOTRBO also includes the SLR 8000 series, a high-power repeater that amplifies a signal to help extend coverage for communication networks such as Capacity Max. The SLR 8000 is built on the same platform as the popular SLR 5000 series and allows customers to deploy systems that cover wide geographical areas. SLR 8000 features a flexible architecture enabling customers to easily configure the repeater to meet their system deployment needs for extreme reliability.

The continued adoption of the MOTOTRBO digital radio in Korea comes as the company marks the 10th anniversary of this portfolio globally.
