Motorola to Showcase Public Safety Solutions Driving Safer Cities, Thriving Communities at IWCE 2013
LAS VEGAS – (IWCE, Motorola Solutions, Booth #527) – March 11, 2013 – Motorola Solutions, Inc. (NYSE: MSI), a leading provider of mission-critical communication solutions and services for government customers, will be showcasing its latest public safety solutions and innovations at the International Wireless Communications Expo (IWCE) March 11-15 at the Las Vegas Convention Center.
Within the information flowing between citizens, responders, and agencies is the intelligence that builds a safer city. Motorola is helping agencies collect more of it, make it actionable and securely distribute it across mission-critical devices and easy-to-manage networks. By turning noise into information, information into intelligence, and intelligence into safety, public safety agencies can do the absolute most with less—build safer cities and communities that thrive.
At IWCE 2013, step into the Motorola city environment to experience the next generation of public safety, meet the Connected Police Officer, observe a Real-Time Crime Center, sit in the driver’s seat of the next-generation patrol vehicle, take command of the integrated multimedia communications center and see the latest from the Public Safety LTE and ASTRO® 25 portfolios.
Motorola once again is leading the way with experts at 16 sessions addressing key public safety topics at IWCE. Motorola also wants to hear from others in the industry and is conducting a survey on public safety communications technologies throughout the show.
- In addition to unveiling the newest versions of Real-Time Video Intelligence and the MVX1000 Digital In-Car Video System, Motorola also is showcasing:
- TRX NEON Indoor Location System, expected to be available in the third quarter of 2013, is an application compatible with Motorola’s APX™ portable radios. APX radios wirelessly pair to the TRX NEON tracking unit, sending real-time location information and precise details to incident commanders about personnel movement and activity.
- ASTRO 25 Provisioning Manager is a web-based interface that helps users save time managing two-way radios, dispatch consoles and conventional channel gateways. Duplicate data entry and errors are reduced with tools that import and reuse information. Granular levels of user security and enhanced agency partitioning also improve system manager efficiencies.
- MCC 7100 IP Dispatch Console can be installed on a tablet, laptop or PC and can be used for fixed positions, on-the-scene incident command, emergency operations center, remote sites and backup dispatch centers. It enables encrypted Project 25 communications to ASTRO 25 systems from anywhere, anytime, over wireless and wired networks.
- Motorola 3600-based trunking users can now migrate to new digital technology using SmartX-enabled ASTRO 25 systems and 3600-based GTR 8000 solutions, available later this year. A clear upgrade path is possible using the trunking simulcast and trunking intellirepeater functionality of a GTR 8000 station.
- PremierOne™ Intelligent Data Discovery provides government and public safety agencies the ability to connect and extract data from any data source across the government enterprise. By utilizing intuitive interactive tools and leveraging their existing data infrastructure, users can quickly access, generate and share on-line, real-time, data-driven dashboards and reports, as well as initiate searches, mine data and formulate predictive models.
- VML 700 LTE Vehicle Modem R1.1 is Motorola’s newest LTE modem, supporting commercial carrier LTE (Band 13), in addition to Public Safety LTE (Band 14). The modem can home on Band 13 carrier LTE, using it as the primary broadband network. It also can act as a mobile WiFi hot spot, supporting 802.11b/g/n. Ideal for public safety agencies wanting broadband in their vehicles, the modem enables new media-rich applications like ultra-fast database look-ups, photos, mapping, or streaming video. It also allows public safety to connect WiFi devices in the vicinity of a vehicle and backhaul them over the LTE network.
- Throughout IWCE, Motorola will continue to conduct its 2013 Government and Public Safety Industry Survey on the new technologies supporting public safety communications. The survey is open to all members of the public safety community and takes about five minutes to complete. A full executive summary of the results will be available in April and will be sent to all participants. These results can help public safety agencies benchmark and compare their systems and plans with their peers.
