KEY FACTS ABOUT MOTOROLA SOLUTIONS AT IWCE

  • Motorola is currently conducting its 2014 Government and Public Safety Industry Survey on technologies supporting public safety communications. The survey is open to all members of the public safety community and takes about five minutes to complete. A full executive summary of the results will be available in April and will be sent to all participants. These results can help public safety agencies benchmark and compare their systems and plans with their peers.
  • Unified Push-To-Talk (PTT), part of Motorola’s VALR mission critical architecture, enables multi-net operations. Unified PTT encompasses the entire continuum of a mission critical system, from the devices first responders hold in their hands to the applications in front of a dispatcher in a command center plus the wireless networks and common interfaces in between. It also offers a public safety-optimized user application operating on Motorola’s public safety-grade devices like the LEX 700 Mission Critical Handheld with Android 4.2.2 (Jelly Bean) operating system and user downloadable client applications operating on consumer Android smartphones.
  • The demand for practical and compelling user applications on public safety networks is growing steadily. The ASTRO® 25 Mission Critical Data solution provides P25 standard data and our new ASTRO 25 Enhanced Data service to fully enable automatic vehicle tracking (AVL) and telemetry applications. These data services are available today on all APX portable and mobile radio models. ASTRO 25 is also introducing Geo Talkgroup Select Assist – our first command center application for re-grouping radios within a geographic boundary.
  • The ASTRO 25 system architecture provides several options for analog conventional and trunking customers who want to move to digital. The amount of legacy components in existing systems can make it difficult to migrate all of them at once. Replacement of these components and subsystems can be achieved gradually with ASTRO 25. The G-Series’ industry-leading, future-ready digital platform is a solution on the market to help customers move from analog conventional to digital P25 TDMA with software upgrades only.
  • Motorola’s Migration Assurance Program also provides customers a clear roadmap for transitioning their infrastructure, devices, software and more from analog to digital. It allows for a seamless technology migration while utilizing a flat, predictable annualized fee financial model.
  • Twisted Pair Solutions, a wholly owned subsidiary of Motorola Solutions, recently announced that its WAVE® software was placed on the U.S. Department of Defense (DoD) Unified Capabilities (UC) Approved Products List (APL). WAVE was granted Information Assurance (IA) certification by the Defense Information Systems Agency (DISA) and Interoperability (IO) certification from the Joint Interoperability Test Command (JITC).
