Motorola Solutions Conducts Chile’s First Demonstration of Public Safety LTE Technology
- Public Safety LTE marks a turning point in how communications technology can improve safety, crime and emergency management
- Demonstration shows innovative tools that provide data and information to speed response to natural disasters, criminal searches and more
SANTIAGO, CHILE - May 18, 2015 – For the first time ever in Chile, Motorola Solutions (NYSE: MSI) will conduct a demonstration of the solutions and devices designed specifically for mission critical communications on public safety LTE networks. The demonstration features different critical situations that first responders may face to illustrate the benefits that public safety LTE technology offers to improve prevention, management and resolution of crime and emergency events.
The demonstration illustrates how quickly a missing child, for example, can be found by immediately distributing photos to mobile phones or to screens in patrol cars. It also shows how public safety command centers can access video from security cameras and vehicles in an area and distribute that video to officers assigned to the event.
During the demonstration, Motorola Solutions also explains how information sent in advance from a command center to officers en route can help them respond to crime and save lives. The demonstration shows how images can be sent from the scene to assigned units so that they have more information when they arrive.
In the case of natural disasters – which often require the support of national and provincial security forces, armed forces, fire-fighters, medical first responders and civil defense organizations – interoperability solutions, as well as public safety LTE technology, make it possible for many different agencies to communicate, even if they use different communications technology. And, public safety LTE technology will enable public safety agencies that regularly use cellular devices to be given access to coordinated radio communications through an application.
With Public Safety LTE technology, information can be turned into life-saving mission-critical intelligence in real time through the high-speed transmission of data, images and video, improving the effectiveness of preventive measures and actions taken by security and emergency agencies. These solutions provide first responders with a purpose-built network that meets their needs for reliability, quality and security.
- The demonstration includes the Motorola Solutions LEX L10 Mission Critical handheld smart computer, which provides personnel with information when and where they need it, with the security and control of its own network, guaranteeing the confidentiality of the information. It also features the Real Time Video Intelligence (RTVI) application, which allows users to view live video broadcasts on LTE devices and, when integrated with the Motorola Solutions MVX1000recording system, allows officers to broadcast live video from their vehicles to other users connected to the same application.
- Finally, the demonstration includes Motorola Solutions’ WAVE Push-To-Talk Solution (interoperability and secure communications) which allows users to easily select a conversation group, push a button and talk to users of other LTE devices or devices with other communication standards. This solution enables the establishment of quick and safe communications between the different systems, frequencies and devices used by different security forces and emergency agencies.

"Chile has taken an important first step by dedicating 4G spectrum to emergency communications. Security agencies are seeking tools that can withstand the rigorous, day-to-day use of responding to a variety of incidents. The public safety community wants to be able to capture and process large volumes of data and turn it into intelligence that helps first responders deal with incidents quickly, or even prevent them from happening. Government agencies are also looking for systems that provide reliable communications between public agencies at all times. Motorola Solutions can meet those needs with our LTE broadband technology dedicated to Public Protection and Disaster Relief."
