Nairobi, Kenya – Sep. 29 2016 - Motorola Solutions, Inc. (NYSE: MSI), a leading provider of innovative mission-critical communication solutions and services, offers Kenya businesses increased productivity with the launch of next-generation communication solutions. New products including next-generation MOTOTRBO radios and communications interoperability solution, WAVE 3000, will be available through Motorola Solutions’ experienced Kenyan partners.

“Our best-in-class products and services offered in the Kenyan market as seen here today, consist of a wide range of solutions. Whether you’re a small boutique hotel or a large industrial plant, we have a communication solution that fits your exact needs,” said Laurent Tribout, director of Sales Channels for Motorola Solutions Africa. “Building on our 40 years of experience across Africa and on our trusted partner network, we provide service and support for our high-quality products to ensure customer satisfaction.”

“The features and functionality, as well as the scalability of our products, reflect the needs of customers for enhanced productivity, efficiency and worker safety,” said Nicolas Coussinoux, senior regional sales manager, Motorola Solutions Africa. “For example, worker safety features such as man-down alerts and indoor tracking are crucial for working in hazardous areas.”

Increased Productivity Across Industries

Motorola Solutions’ latest MOTOTRBO digital radios use Wi-Fi connectivity for software updates, saving hundreds of hours of lost productivity. For a group of 350 workers, updating devices can mean 400 lost hours. MOTOTRBO radios update seamlessly without the need to drop off devices, and coupled with 29 hours of battery life, the new line keeps workers in the field or on the job instead of waiting for new software.

Collaboration Made Easy for Commercial Users

Responding to rising demand for flexible two-way radio solutions, Motorola Solutions introduces MOTOTRBO Capacity Max, a scalable solution with significant advantages in capacity, performance and manageability. Capacity Max can be scaled from a single-site system to projects that demand up to 3,000 users per site for voice- and data-intensive deployments. It also supports the European Telecommunications Standards Institute (ETSI) Digital Mobile Radio (DMR) standard for multi-vendor interoperability, including the Tier III mode of operation.

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. The SLR 8000 features a flexible architecture, enabling customers to easily configure the repeater to meet their system deployment needs for extreme reliability.

Simple and Seamless Collaboration Solution

Motorola Solutions also presents Kenya with its WAVE Work Group Communications for enhanced connectivity, interoperability and collaboration. WAVE Work Group Communications is a broadband push-to-talk (PTT) solution that delivers real-time voice and data securely over any network, using any device.
