Narrowbanding


Overview

Features and Benefits

Motorola Solutions is here to help you prepare for a smooth and cost-effective transition. While Motorola radios purchased in the last ten years are likely dual-mode 25/12.5 kHz, older equipment may need to be replaced. Please contact your local Motorola representative today for assistance.

Narrowbanding FCC Mandate
In an effort to promote greater spectrum efficiency, the FCC is requiring all Public Safety and Industrial/Business licensees using 25 kHz VHF and UHF radios systems migrate to minimum 12.5 kHz efficiency by January 1, 2013

Increase Capacity or TDMA Efficiency
Increase capacity and meet the Narrowbanding mandate without applying for a second channel. Motorola is shipping two complete product families; ASTRO 25 APX radios for mission critical applications and the MOTOTRBO series for business critical applications that provide greater than 12.5 kHz efficiency.

Transition at Your Own Pace
Motorola radios are backwards compatible so they can operate in dual mode (12.5 kHz or 25 kHz), allowing your organization to transition to 12.5 kHz at your own pace up to the FCC deadline.
