Motorola, Inc. today announced that it will be showcasing its portfolio of solutions for public safety users at BAPCO 2009, Stand 304, Business Design Centre, London.

Experts from Motorola will be on hand to discuss how developments in Motorola products and solutions help public safety bodies quickly and effectively respond to emergency situations.

Motorola representatives will also be delivering presentations during the BAPCO Conference, sharing the Company's experience in Mission Critical Design.

Bruce Claxton, senior director, Design Integration, Motorola, will deliver a presentation on Mission Critical Design for First Responders, explaining how user centered design processes must integrate with the rigors of social science and the art of design in order to develop ideally suited devices for mission critical needs.

Eddie Smith, director of Services, Motorola G&PS, EMEA, will also give an overview on strategies for developing a resilient network; from funding to performance requirements; from technology to environmental challenges and opportunities. Mr Smith's presentation will also include a look at the hydrogen fuel-cell powered TETRA base stations which have played a key role in improving the resilience of Denmark's nationwide public safety network.

At BAPCO, Motorola will discuss its legacy of engineering, technology and rapid prototyping, as well as how it has included the rigor of social science within the design process. Specifically, Motorola will comment on how design integration has been tailored to the mission critical environment and how design and usability are key factors in ensuring effective products and solutions for public safety workers.

"We're continually looking at ways to improve public safety and mission critical services - whether this is through our product design, network or devices," commented Manuel Torres, vice president and general manager, Motorola Government & Public Safety, EMEA. "We look forward to sharing the latest in our product portfolio and demonstrate how we are leading in this area and also, how we are responding to the evolving needs of our customers at BAPCO 2009."

After shipping its first TETRA terminal in the late 1990's, Motorola presented Surrey Police with a trophy to mark the delivery of the 200,000th terminal in November 2003. The delivery of the 1 millionth terminal reflects the rapid increase in the TETRA market in recent years and continued market recognition of Motorola's pioneering position in the development of innovative products.

Motorola's mission critical MOTOA4 portfolio provides technology that is second nature by enabling seamless connectivity and putting real-time information into the hands of users. The company is the leading provider of integrated radio communications and information solutions, with over 65 years of experience in meeting the mission-critical requirements of public safety, government and enterprise customers worldwide.
