Motorola Solutions introduces new suite of broadband-based applications for first responders

Motorola Solutions (NYSE: MSI) is introducing the next generation of mission-critical, broadband-based solutions to help transform communications into improved safety for first responders and the people they protect, the company said.

Motorola Solutions designed an integrated mobile application experience for first responders in the field. Apps share the same look and feel, context and credentials so that officers don´t have to stop and re-enter key information across apps. They operate seamlessly with both LMR and LTE networks and provide a streamlined experience to help officers stay focused on the environment around them.

With the new Broadband Connectivity Package, Motorola Solutions ASTRO® 25 digital LMR network users across North America can connect to public safety broadband networks for PTT communications across different types of devices. This fully configured and managed service will enable public safety agencies to communicate seamlessly between radio and broadband users with local city and county staff, and other extended users such as public utilities.

Motorola Solutions´ Managed Services team takes care of everything from installation to management and monitoring of the connection between ASTRO 25 and broadband networks.

If a forest fire or other emergency breaks out in a remote area, fire and police commanders can use the LXN 500 to quickly establish LTE coverage where needed. The Wi-Fi and GPS equipped LXN 500 is a complete standalone LTE network that can host the software applications they need such as mapping, messaging and video streaming to pinpoint in-field resources and enable seamless collaboration.

Motorola Solutions´ new, innovative Sr600 in-car camera provides a 360-degree view to capture an entire scene. When an event occurs, the camera can capture not only what happens in the front of the car, but also each side and the back for a full-picture view. It captures evidence-quality video and audio recordings, and stores them securely.

Motorola Solutions´ CommandCentral Inform provides a map-based, common operating picture of events and resource locations. It will now integrate RapidSOS 911 call data to show the location of callers. It will also be capable of displaying additional information such as health details provided by a caller, demographics and even telematics from connected cars through RapidSOS. This will provide command staff with increased situational awareness for the best response in an emergency.
