Motorola Solutions Unveils Breakthrough SL1M Portable Radio

Beijing, November 26, 2014Motorola Solutions Inc. (NYSE: MSI) today released the brand-new MOTOTRBO™ SL1M portable radio, which signifies the breakthrough and innovation made by Motorola Solutions in portability and simplicity of professional commercial radios. The SL1M is trendy, slim, rugged and reliable, and is compatible with MOTOTRBO features. It helps users in the hospitality industry, supermarkets, light industry and logistics to improve work efficiency and boosts the use of convenience and user satisfaction.

Along with the migration from analog to digital in the China market, the digital radios' advantages such as better voice quality and coverage are widely recognized by users. Today, hotel, supermarket, logistics and manufacturing users have increasing requirements on the delicate profile and simple operation of radios. While providing the high performance digital features to the users, the SL1M redefines the portability of radios. Its ergonomic design allows one-handed operation. Furthermore, its ultra-slim profile and versatile adjustments, including belt clip, flexible hand strap and swivel carry holster, allow the user to carry it in a bag or wear it as appropriate, which gives the freedom to focus on the job at hand, thereby saving communication cost and improving production efficiency. Its specific features include:

l Ultra-slim profile, simple operation. The thickness of SL1M is only 0.87 inches (as thick as a deck of playing cards). Its sleek frame and curved edges not only save space, but also make it easily carried in pockets and purses without snagging or bulging. Simple operation is always a users' primary requirement when using radios. Designed to mimic the feel of a smart phone, the SL1M has a separate power button, a channel switch toggle on top and side volume control buttons. The new button design provides users with the same convenient operation experience as mobile phones. Moreover, it features prominent push-to-talk button to support quick one-hand access.

l Advanced technology, rugged and reliable. The SL1M is outfitted with the latest technology for performance. It utilizes Range Max technology, which delivers enhanced range while maintaining a slim profile and long battery life (14 hours). When the SL1M is used in noisy environments, such as workshops or outdoor logistics transportation, its unique loud audio design can remarkably improve call volume, thereby ensuring clear voice calls at crucial moments. Moreover, the LED matrix behind the radio housing can display the channel number, battery status and volume, etc. When not in use, the display automatically turns off. Finally, the whole assembly provides excellent shock-resistance and scratch-resistant protection.

l Interconnection & compatibility, high efficiency. With IP site connect function, the SL1M is especially fit for hotel chains and supermarkets. It can easily interconnect multiple stations through an IP network, forming a system with a wider coverage. This allows the user to optimize interconnectivity of multiple stores in one area, which facilitates management and the transmission of sales information, remarkably improving operating efficiency. At the same time, compatible with MOTOTRBO features, the SL1M plays an important role in industry users' business processing. With the MOTOTRBO series, a call can be interrupted to prioritize critical communications timely. Moreover, the SL1M provides all digital functions needed by business users, and can better help them digitalize current communication systems.

Michael Jiang, chairman and president of Motorola Solutions China, said: "Motorola Solutions is committed to users' needs and shows persistence in innovation, and the SL1M perfectly illustrates that. Its unique design meets the demand of users in various sectors for easy-to-operate portable digital radios, and takes improved user experience to a new height. With its more than 80 years' heritage and persistent innovative philosophy, Motorola Solutions will help more business users realize effective communication management in a simple and efficient manner, and meet users' communication needs in moments that matter."
