Motorola Solutions has launched WAVE – the new, network-independent multimedia communication subscription service in Europe, the Middle East and Africa (EMEA). The cloud-based push-to-talk (PTT) service connects teams and enables real-time group communications using any device from smartphones to two-way radios, tablets and PCs to broadband devices. WAVE Radio TLK 100 In addition to its cloud-based WAVE service, Motorola Solutions is introducing its new purpose-built WAVE Radio: the TLK 100. The TLK 100 combines the functional benefits of WAVE with a rugged radio form factor for professional users. The device provides businesses with instant push-to-talk communication across Europe, utilizing 3G, 4G or Wi-Fi networks without the need for costly or time-consuming spectrum licensing or manual programming. The rugged PTT device is ideal for industries like construction, transportation, energy, private securityThe rugged PTT device is ideal for industries like construction, transportation, energy, private security, and more. Businesses can easily manage their workforce using the integrated GPS to maximize safety, check project status, find faster routes, modify tasks, and position team members where they are needed most. WAVE Mobile Application A new WAVE Mobile Application enables workers to turn their phone into a broadband PTT handset and get instant communication anywhere they have broadband service. Users can connect their two-way radio system to WAVE, extending coverage and allowing smartphones to communicate with radio users. Integrated messaging also enables them to push text, video, audio, photos and files to individuals or groups as well as coordinate meetings based on location sharing. WAVE Dispatch Application Motorola Solutions offers a WAVE Dispatch Application to simplify day-to-day broadband PTT group communicationsMotorola Solutions also offers a WAVE Dispatch Application to further simplify day-to-day broadband PTT group communications. With WAVE Dispatch, businesses can manage their resources and coordinate an effective operation from any internet connection with a standard browser. They can keep in touch with their teams to ensure that they have all the information they need. Workforces can also be deployed more efficiently through location updates and mapping. “We see a growing demand from businesses that need to connect their teams via easy-to-use push-to-talk services in the field,” said Viv Francis, vice president, channel sales EMEA at Motorola Solutions. “They need future-leading technologies for group-based broadband communications, plus purpose-built devices that function at the push of a single button to improve employee efficiency.”
Motorola Solutions’ local partners Aksel and Siltec have been selected in a tender by the Polish Prison Service to fulfill the public contract to modernize the communications system. Under the contract, all penal institutions in Poland will be equipped with state-of-the-art MOTOTRBOTM Digital Mobile Radio (DMR) technology from Motorola Solutions to replace the analog radio infrastructure with a proven digital radio communication solution. The experienced consortium will modernize the public safety radio communications systems according to the 2016 Act ‘Programme for the Modernisation of the Prison Service in 2017-2020’. MOTOTRBO digital radio technology The modernization project represents an important milestone in the deployment of the digital radio communications system for the Polish Prison Service. Within the framework of the project, the consortium of Aksel and Siltec delivers future-leading MOTOTRBO digital radio technology from Motorola Solutions including DM4600e base stations, DP4601e portable, DM4601e mobile two-way radios as well as SLR5500 repeaters. The new system also includes the ConSEL dispatching software to manage the system. The mission-critical communications system can be expanded for future interoperability with public safety agenciesThe next-generation technology provides highly improved quality, reliability and coverage as well as secure encryption of voice communications in prison facilities and convoy vehicles of the Polish Prison Service. The GPS tracking function also has crucial functions allowing increased levels of security for officers operating at penal institutions. This is a crucial element for localizing the position of convoy vehicles or officers in prison facilities. Moreover, the mission-critical communications system can be expanded for future interoperability with other public safety agencies and organizations in Poland. Improvement in Prison Service’s communications “The DMR tender award in Poland reinforces our position as a trusted market and technology leader in providing mission-critical communications solutions together with our longstanding local partners,” adds Viv Francis, vice president, channel sales EMEA at Motorola Solutions. “The transformation of the analog radio system to the latest digital radio standard means a fundamental qualitative change and improvement in the communications of the Polish Prison Service – today and in the future.” The complete modernization of the Polish Prison Service radio system to become a fully functional, next-generation DMR system will be finalized in 2020.
