Motorola Solutions provides the world’s only true TETRA platform future-ready for LTE. Rail operators have the benefit of a converged radio, core and transport architecture that is ready to support an end-state network optimized for next-generation LTE broadband services and applications.

From secure and assured radio communications, Rail Operation Control Centre applications, trainbourne equipment and field personnel communications, Motorola Solutions continues to drive the TETRA innovations trusted by the world’s leading rail service operators.

LTE-R 4G BROADBAND

TRANSFORM RAIL OPERATIONS WITH BROADBAND INNOVATIONS AND INTELLIGENT TRANSPORT SOLUTIONS

Today, the most advanced mobile broadband technologies on the planet are available to rail operations, delivering unprecedented access to real-time, multimedia intelligence and workforce collaboration along mainline tracks, station houses, drone robotics, and onboard rail stock. Fueled by open standards, shared intellectual property, a rich ecosystem of developers and the promise of scaled economies, LTE-R has been selected for the future of Intelligent Rail Transportation.

Rail operations entrusted with safe and reliable movement of people and cargo have unique, specialized communications needs. Leveraging decades of domain expertise and a significant research and development focus working directly with mission critical communications users, Motorola Solutions has developed an unparalleled portfolio of LTE-R solutions optimised for rail operations.

With LTE-R we enable powerful solutions for safeguarding the security of rail travel while delivering increased workforce collaboration with the priority, control, security and performance at the core of mission critical rail communications. Connecting advanced multimedia services to today’s critical voice and offering a new collection of innovative data devices to join trusted two-way radio communications, LTE-R is a critical ingredient in delivering the next generation of rail communications.

CONNECTED RAIL WORKER

PERSONAL AREA NETWORKS DESIGNED FOR HIGH VELOCITY PERFORMANCE

Motorola Solutions looks at the entirety of the communications platform as a holistic system centered around an individual user. A Personal Area Network, where the radio and broadband device are tethering the individual’s communications to the team and the command center. An array of smart devices connected on the individual helps him be more aware of his environment and more intuitively engage with the information available to him. Environmental sensors automatically trigger emergency alerts to the command center, wearable cameras immediately capture the scene and stream live video to the team, heads-up displays provide unobtrusive access to information through overlays, and biomonitoring devices can measure heart rate, blood pressure and detect if a user is standing, running, or inactive.

ADVANCING THE INTELLIGENT EDGE WITH THE NEXT GENERATION USER INTERFACE

Motorola Solutions brings its groundbreaking Public Safety Experience (PSX) user interface, optimized for mission critical mobile workers, to rail operations. With Motorola's PSX, LTE devices and application consoles become a virtual partner, always monitoring the user's environment, gathering and prioritizing information, and maintaining context-awareness of the user's circumstance. With the PSX LTE devices reconfigure dynamically based on the individual's activity, spring to attention when the user is called to action, and bring focus to the most relevant, possibly life-saving information. It's an intuitive interface that puts safety above everything else by adapting and focusing only on what's needed.

The Motorola LEX L10 Mission Critical Handheld is purpose-built to deliver the optimal rail experience that frontline workers need to work safer, smarter and faster. The device addresses the unique requirements of rail personnel by delivering the mission critical capabilities not available on consumer-grade smartphones.

DYNAMIC INTELLIGENCE

The LEX L10 is equipped with an optimized user interface that is customizable, role-based and adaptive. It intelligently aggregates and prioritizes information to only present what is critical for the user, based on their current status and activity.

MISSION CRITICAL PERFORMANCE

The sleek LEX L10 is ergonomically designed for one-handed operation with a no-slip grip texture on the removable battery cover and a 4.7-inch touch screen. It includes best-in-class audio performance with dual 1 Watt front-facing speakers, tri-microphone noise and echo cancellation, and a dedicated, tactile push-to-talk (PTT) button for fast voice collaboration. The LEX L10 is secured with FIPS 140-2 Level 3 hardware encryption, Security Enhanced (SE) Android OS and Secure Boot to deter cyber threats. It works on private LTE-R bands as well as commercial carrier 3G/4G ensuring optimal coverage and performance at all times.

RAIL APPLICATIONS DELIVER MISSION CRITICAL INTELLIGENCE

The LEX L10 supports a suite of rail applications designed to le verage mission critical intelligence in the field to improve situational awareness, increase field productivity and engage with passengers.

These applications improve the efficiency of the rail service by automating manual processes, maximizing report accuracy and minimizing the time to process cases. As a result, rail personnel can spend more time in the field and less time doing paperwork. Workers see one view based on common location, tracking, presence, video feeds and other data sources tot enable better collaborative actions. Communications operators have visibility and control across the unified communications network, applications and fleet of devices.
