Motorola Solutions will demonstrate how its advanced, mission-critical solutions enable public safety and enterprise organizations to overcome their most complex challenges at Critical Communications World 2019 (June 18-20, MITEC, Kuala Lumpur, Malaysia, booth G30). At CCW 2019, Motorola Solutions will showcase a comprehensive set of innovations spanning mission-critical communications, command center software, video security solutions and managed and support services. Mission-critical communications Mission-critical communications are essential to maintaining safety and security for our communities Mission-critical communications are essential to maintaining safety and security for our communities, from daily operations to extreme events including disaster recovery. These solutions are essential for the Asia Pacific region, as evidenced by a United Nations report estimating that economic losses from natural disasters could reach USD$160 billion annually by 2030. Organizations also demand new solutions to augment voice communication with the unprecedented volumes of data and video available today. To address this need, Motorola Solutions has brought together a comprehensive, integrated mission-critical ecosystem of technologies comprising: Mission-Critical Communications: Including the TLK100 and LEX L11 LTE devices that show what is possible over LTE networks and the ultra-portable LXN505 public safety LTE infrastructure system. Command Centre Software: To streamline and simplify daily workflows including CommandCentral Aware, the world’s only unified, proven, end-to-end public safety applications suite. Video Security Solutions: Including the latest from Avigilon’s video security and analytics portfolio including the H4 Thermal camera with self-learning video analytics. Managed & Support Services: To enable customers to focus on their mission while staying ahead of cybersecurity threats. Access to accurate data Having access to the right data enables organizations to make fast and accurate decisions on valuable resources' placement" “Having access to the right data enables organizations to make fast and accurate decisions about where to place their valuable resources, which work to prioritize and how to prepare for their most challenging events,” Motorola Solutions corporate vice president, Mike deVente, said. “The mission-critical ecosystem we are demonstrating at CCW draws on our 90 year heritage of innovation and our strong understanding of customers’ daily operational needs,” he said. Critical Communications World 2019 At CCW 2019, commercial customers in the transportation, energy and utilities segments will also learn how Motorola Solutions’ mission-critical ecosystem and the innovations in critical communications can be customized to meet their needs. One recent example of this is Motorola Solutions’ successful integration work with Siemens to achieve railway signaling over TETRA networks to European Train Control System (ETCS) Level 2 standards.
