The Motorola Solutions' business has been and remains very active in the development of the following existing and emerging standards:
- APCO P25 Phase I & Phase II
- ETSI TETRA I & TETRA II
- ETSI DMR
- ETSI dPMR
We have invested well over $1B to sponsor and co-develop these standards and related technologies. Over the years, Motorola Solutions has also contributed dozens of essential patent families to speed standards development and resolve technical challenges.
Motorola Solutions’ Standards-Based Licensing program is based on a set of patents that are essential* to the respective standard. This program makes Motorola Solutions’ essential patents available to prospective licensees on a fair, reasonable and non-discriminatory basis. Licensing terms within the respective programs are substantially identical, with minor adjustments to accommodate unique situations. Royalty rates are expressed in fixed amounts, and may be adjusted from time to time in response to market conditions, technology maturity and portfolio coverage.
*An essential patent is generally any patent that discloses and claims one or more inventions that are required to practice a given industry standard.
