Motorola Solutions tests push-to-talk

Motorola Solutions, a provider of mission-critical communications solutions for public safety and commercial users, has participated in a successful week of plugtesting organized by the European Telecommunications Standards Institute (ETSI) and The Critical Communications Association (TCCA) in Texas.

Plugtests are the initial verification of implementations of new standard protocols. They serve as a validation of the standard as well as an early practical test. Protocol plugtests will lead to product interoperability such as the TCCA Interoperability (IOP) Testing & Certification process and the P25 CAP process, which was developed to enable a trusted, open multi-vendor market for TETRA and P25 equipment.

During the week-long plugtest Motorola Solutions participated in testing for the 3GPP Release 14 Mission-Critical Push-To-Talk (MCPTT) and Mission-Critical Data (MCDATA) protocols, which build the foundation of its standardized WAVE Broadband Push-To-Talk (PTT) platform.

Motorola Solutions also has announced a number of certifications for its LEX L11 Mission-Critical LTE device, which was designed alongside first responders using global broadband networks.

Motorola Solutions creates innovative, mission-critical communication solutions and services that help public safety and commercial customers build safer cities and thriving communities. For ongoing news, visit
