Motorola Solutions will unveil highly advanced technology solutions to enhance the capabilities of nationwide public safety networks
The company’s mission-critical radio technologies, specialised software, mission critical broadband, command centre solutions and future innovation concepts will all be presented at Asia World Expo in Hong Kong.
Motorola Solutions’ advanced technology showcase comes at a time when both mission-critical radio and public safety broadband solutions are in high demand throughout the Asia Pacific. This is reflected in forecasts that by 2020 there will be *almost 20 million active two-way radios in the region, while the ** North America and Asia Pacific regions combined will account for nearly 70 percent of all public safety broadband investment globally.
Iain Clarke, corporate vice president and general manager, Asia Pacific, for Motorola Solutions, said the growth in both mission-critical communications and mobile broadband technologies is fuelled by demand for end-to-end, interoperable solutions combining the most needed elements of voice, data and multimedia communication.
“Public safety customers in Asia Pacific are among the most technically advanced in the world and are continuing their rapid adoption of mission-critical mobile intelligence services and smart technologies,” Clarke said. “This is enabling them to filter and analyse the vast amounts data available today so they can make better and faster decisions to protect our communities.
“Motorola Solutions’ deep domain expertise in delivering holistic public safety solutions will benefit those countries in Asia Pacific planning for large-scale, highly-available and secure deployments,” he said.
Motorola Solutions continues to invest in new capabilities and skills to accelerate innovation within Asia Pacific - from its partnership with Singapore’s ST Electronics to develop advanced communications technologies to its acquisition of a large team of mobile application developers through the acquisition of Gridstone in Australia.
Clarke said further evidence of his company’s much needed role in delivering secure and reliable critical communication services and global innovation was demonstrated through a series of major milestones. These include Motorola Solutions’:
- Contract to deliver system integration and next-generation, mission-critical voice and data services for the Emergency Services Network in the UK
- Implementation of the three largest public safety broadband networks in the world, in Los Angeles County, California in the U.S. and in two Middle Eastern countries
- Delivery of leading public safety broadband trials with multiple international police and military forces throughout the world.
- Recently announced plans to acquire Kodiak Networks, a privately held provider of broadband push-to-talk (PTT) for commercial customers.
“At CCW we will demonstrate our broad capabilities to deliver end-to-end public safety software solutions as well as the powerful set of tools we have to enable organisations to work more safely and collaboratively with increased situational awareness,” Clarke said.
Highlights from Motorola Solutions’ technology showcase at CCW 2017 include:
- A futuristic view of the of the Command Centre of the Future that uses next-generation technology, including mixed reality and holographic images, to enable first responders to collaborate on critical information like never before.
- Essential radio technologies including the latest TETRA, APCO P25 and MOTOTRBO releases combined with enhanced features including software applications to increase collaboration and simplify workflows.
- Mobile applications for secure messaging, mapping, collaborative whiteboarding and conducting searches.
- A Convergence Suite of software including WAVE 5000 combined with Intelligent Middleware solutions to extend the bridge between radio and cellular networks to team members regardless of the devices they use.
- Deployable LTE infrastructure for continuous operations, including the LXN500 solution combined with mapping, messaging and video streaming maps to pinpoint in-field resources and enable seamless collaboration.
- Command centre solutions including CommandCentral Aware to integrate disparate data sources and CommandCentral Vault for complete digital evidence management including body-worn video.
- Integrated Computer Aided Dispatch solutions to simplify the management of critical information from central data sources between control rooms, first responders and the community.
