Motorola Solutions has launched a suite of communications tools for the South African market, including MOTOTRBO and WAVE 3000 radios, as well as a range of software products and services.
“Aside from offering a wide variety of products, we also keep in mind that businesses often work over different platforms,” said Pieter Pienaar, senior regional sales manager, Motorola Solutions Africa. “With the WAVE Work Group solution, customers are provided a unified experience across radio, mobile and WiFi that keeps teams connected no matter the network.”
Motorola Solutions’ latest MOTOTRBO digital radios use WiFi connectivity for software updates, saving hundreds of hours of lost productivity. For a group of 350 workers, updating devices can mean 400 lost hours. MOTOTRBO radios update seamlessly without the need to drop off devices. Coupled with 29 hours of battery life, the new line keeps workers in the field or on the job instead of waiting for new software.
Responding to rising demand for flexible two-way radio solutions, MOTOTRBO Capacity Max is a scalable solution with significant advantages in capacity, performance and manageability. It can be scaled from a single-site system to projects that demand up to 3 000 users per site for voice and data-intensive 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.
MOTOTRBO also includes the SLR 8000 series, a high-power repeater that amplifies a signal to help extend coverage for communication networks such as Capacity Max. The SLR 8000 is built on the same platform as the popular SLR 5000 series and allows customers to deploy systems that cover wide geographical areas. It features a flexible architecture, enabling customers to easily configure the repeater to meet their system deployment needs for extreme reliability.
Motorola Solutions has also launched WAVE Work Group Communications for enhanced connectivity, interoperability and collaboration. This 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.
