Motorola Solutions Showcases Innovative Mobility Solutions for Public Safety at Critical Communications Middle East
Dubai, UAE, September 15, 2014: Motorola Solutions, Inc. (NYSE: MSI), a leading provider of mission-critical communications solutions and services for enterprise and government customers, today unveiled a suite of solutions designed to improve emergency response and decision-making capabilities of public safety agencies in the Middle East. These innovative solutions range from a versatile range of Terrestrial Trunked Radios (TETRA), a fully operational, connected patrol car that represents the emergency vehicle of the future, and a next-generation Intelligent Data Portal that makes accessing critical information easier and allows for multi-agency collaboration.
The company will also be showcasing these solutions and more at the ongoing Critical Communications Middle East 2014 conference & exhibition which concludes tomorrow at the Jumeirah Beach Hotel in Dubai. Critical Communications Middle East is the region’s flagship event for critical communications professionals.
Osama Shihabi, director of Sales, Middle East Region, Motorola Solutions, said, “As the imperative for public safety and security continues to grow in modern societies, having greater mobility and instant access to mission-critical information has become vital to making potentially life-saving decisions. The diverse range of solutions we are showcasing at Critical Communications Middle East helps leverage mobility technology advancements to bring a new level of intelligence and connectivity in the field in order to coordinate a better response and improve decision-making capabilities of public safety professionals.”
The MTP3000 and MTP6000 TETRA radio series have been created to drive safer, smarter and faster frontline operations. This family of radios addresses diverse end-user needs and delivers assured communications through industry-leading audio and coverage performance. Motorola
Solutions will also showcase its ATEX-certified radios which are optimized for hazardous oil and gas environments.
Key Facts on TETRA Radio Terminals
- Simplifying evidence gathering, the MTP6750 is the world’s first TETRA radio with an integrated 5MP camera. Complementing its evidential image capture capability is the Photograph and Intelligence Communication System (PICS) - a mission-critical image management solution.
- The MTP6000 series is hardware-ready for TETRA Enhanced Data Service (TEDS), offering a secure investment for organisations seeking to improve efficiency by harnessing mission-critical data services.
- With the MTP3000 series, frontline workers can benefit from handheld terminals that are easy to use and that support capabilities essential to mission-critical operations
- ATEX radios come with a strong rugged design for optimum reliability in harsh conditions, powerful, high quality audio and user safety features like Internal “Man Down” alert - this fully integrated solution triggers an emergency procedure when the holder of the radio remains motionless for a set period or falls down.
Motorola’s connected police car heralds a new era of mobility in emergency services. Based on years of research, ride-alongs, focus groups, simulations and usability studies, the car is designed to seamlessly integrate with the first responder’s personal mobile communication network and workflow, extending critical information from command-and-control to mobile users and enhancing safety and operational efficiency in the field. The state-of-the-art car comes equipped with mobile computers, multiple cameras recording video, automatic number plate recognition technology, an integrated console that controls the radio, lights, sirens, as well as movement sensors.
Key Facts on Connected Police Car
- The car can be connected to the officer and command centres simultaneously. Command centres will not only be able to effectively capture data from vehicles in the field, but will also be able to securely transmit real-time video and mapping to assist those on the front line.
- Video and surveillance footage can easily be sent to the police car’s built-in MW810 mobile workstation and the officer’s mobile handheld device in real-time. For example, officers will be able to stream live video from the scene to dispatch or command, keeping everyone informed.
- Wireless technology and scanners within the car will be able to detect when an officer leaves the car, with information then transferred to the officer’s mobile handheld computer, allowing easy access to database information.
The new Intelligent Data Portal from Motorola Solutions provides public safety agencies and commercial services with a simple way to access their data in the field from multiple databases across different mobile devices and networks. IDP is a mobile, cloud-based application that gathers contextual information from existing databases; it then organizes and maps it using role-based layers to show the location and context of people, resources, events and developing situations. Users in the field can see near real-time updates of data from sensors, surveillance cameras, relevant social media feeds such as Facebook, Twitter, Picasa, Flickr & Instagram and other events to provide warnings of escalating and evolving situations.
Key Facts on Intelligent Data Portal
o IDP enables officers, incident commanders and investigators to access critical information from multiple databases and provides a single, easy-to-use interface for one operating view. Information can also be shared with other agencies and across jurisdictions.
- The mobile application integrates with existing computer-aided dispatch (CAD) systems and the browser-based software is compatible with in-vehicle workstations, smart phones and tablets.
- On-demand information obtained from Intelligent Data Portal is displayed in an integrated view of data, alerts, incidents, personnel and resources and is layered to allow the user to decide what information to display or hide.
