Motorola Solutions is to show its ecosystem of devices, software and services designed to create an intelligence-led future for public safety at PMRExpo 2015 in Cologne, Germany this week (24-26 November 2015).
The company said the priority is to keep emergency responders and the command centre constantly connected and informed, and to ensure reliable communications with employees on-site or off-site. Motorola said its aim is to provide end-to-end solutions for first responders by, for example, combining intelligent solutions like body-worn cameras with next-generation analytics methods.
“Our Smart Public Safety solutions transform ever-growing data sources into a force multiplier, enabling fast, accurate emergency response and crime prevention,” said Christoph Thomas, chairman, Motorola Solutions Germany.
“By harnessing data from numerous sources such as live video footage from unmanned aerial vehicles, social media, sensors or body-worn cameras, we enable first responders to keep workflows simple and intuitive while improving situational awareness and officer safety.”
Motorola will be displaying a number of different solutions at PMRExpo 2015, including:
Intelligence-led analytics for the command centre
Motorola is showcasing its CommandCentral portfolio (pictured above) for increased pre-, mid- and post-event awareness in the command centre and on the street. With advanced analytics, agencies and departments can aggregate data and visualise it in several ways, including location and heat mapping, charting or simplifying complex historical data into well-arranged dashboards.
Deployable LTE broadband solutions
Motorola has teamed up with Ericsson, a major provider of technology and service to telecom operators, to deliver LTE technology to public safety. Motorola offers a full set of public safety LTE solutions that provide the speed, priority, control and security that public safety, government agencies and other critical services require.
With on-demand TETRA and LTE connectivity, emergency service personnel can stay connected with an easily transportable infrastructure that operates as stand-alone or as an extension to the main network.
Capturing critical events instantly and accurately
Expanding the capabilities of connected police officers, Motorola will demonstrate a full range of wearable solutions that combines voice communications, video, images and emergency alerting into compact and easy-to-use devices.
As recently announced at the IACP conference, the Si300 and Si500 body-worn cameras integrated with radio speaker microphones present an innovative interface that extends the performance of the connected police officer.
When paired with a Motorola APX P25 portable radio, the solution enables users to control radio channels and talkgroups, view and tag recorded videos and photos as well as listen to audio recordings.
The Si Series smart devices combine with the Motorola CommandCentral Vault storage system to form an end-to-end digital evidence management solution for law enforcement agencies that is unmatched in the marketplace.
At PMRExpo, Motorola will also presents its WAVE Work Group Communications for enhanced connectivity, interoperability and collaboration. WAVE Work Group Communications is a broadband push-to-talk (PTT) solution that delivers real-time voice and data securely over any network, using any device.
From two-way radios to smartphones, laptops to landlines, tablets to rugged handhelds, users can use the devices they already have and the networks they already subscribe to and communicate via PTT with other teams and individuals both inside and outside of their communication system.
Collaborative environment for commercial users
Across many industries like utilities, energy or manufacturing there is growing customer demand for highly secure, reliable and cost-efficient professional two-way radio communications solutions that provide users with the flexibility to expand networks and applications.
Motorola claimed it is exceeding these requirements and has introduced its new feature-rich, next-generation trunking solution called Mototrbo Capacity Max, delivering significant advances in capacity, performance and manageability.
Mototrbo Capacity Max is scalable from small, single-site systems to large, complex projects that demand greater capacity (up to 3,000 users per site) and higher levels of performance from voice and data-intensive communications deployments.
It also supports the European Telecommunications Standards Institute (ETSI) Digital Mobile Radio (DMR) standard for multi-vendor interoperability, including the Tier III mode of operation.
