Motorola Solutions (NYSE: MSI) has announced its ongoing development of a 900 MHz private broadband solution that will offer critical infrastructure entities high-power and interoperable communications, the company said.
The announcement anticipates a regulatory proceeding by the Federal Communications Commission (FCC) to realign the 900 MHz band, one of the prime sub GHz dedicated spectrum, to increase capacity for broadband use.
Motorola Solutions is a long-standing provider of private narrowband communications equipment and radios in the 900 MHz band, with years of experience delivering mission-critical private networks. Its patent portfolio allows it to bring greater capacity, high-power performance and reduced interference to the LTE space. Its solution will include infrastructure, devices, software and service components to address the end-to-end needs of utility, oil, gas and other commercial customers. It will be offered in the flexible commercial terms that align with the market needs.
Motorola Solutions grew its enterprise broadband portfolio last year with the launch of Nitro, an end-to-end LTE solution for commercial customers. Nitro operates on the recently available Citizens Broadband Radio Service (CBRS) spectrum and delivers lightning-fast private broadband and premium voice communications. Nitro networks can be connected to 900 MHz networks to provide seamless voice and data connectivity throughout a customer´s territory.
