Motorola Solutions releases mission-critical devices and software for first responders

Motorola Solutions (NYSE: MSI) solutions work together to improve command center operations from the time a 9-1-1 call is placed to after an incident is resolved, the company said.

When first responders are surrounded by explosive gases and flammable vapors, they need to know that it´s safe to communicate. Motorola Solutions is introducing two new hazardous location (hazloc) versions of its popular APX 8000 all-band P25 radio, both certified to the Class 1 Div 1 standard by Underwriters´ Laboratory (UL). The APX 8000H is built for law enforcement, military and federal agencies. The APX 8000HXE is designed for firefighters and disaster management teams.

The LEX L11 public safety LTE device is AT&T certified and designed for the US broadband First Responder Network Authority (FirstNet) or similar global public safety networks. Motorola Solutions is working with AT&T to provide first responders with the next generation of software capabilities, including voice, data and message sharing across a secure network to enable them to quickly access and coordinate action based on vital information.

When a large-scale emergency strikes, fast inter-agency collaboration is key to a coordinated response. Critical Connect is a cloud-based solution that enables any agency connected to this service to communicate between Motorola Solutions´ LMR systems and mission-critical applications. System interoperability and data sharing is fast and secure. Agencies can communicate via voice or Motorola Solutions push-to-talk services while sharing broadband data information such as pictures, videos, location and other intelligence information.
