Motorola Solutions today unveiled its next generation TETRA (TErrestrial Trunked RAdio) innovations, led by the MTP3000 handheld radio series, at the Dubai International Convention and Exhibition Centre.
The company, which is the world’s largest supplier of TETRA technology, said the new radios raise the standard in safety, ease of use and device ruggedness while ensuring the mission-critical functionality expected by public safety and enterprise organisations.
The heart of Motorola’s next generation TETRA solutions, it added, is security and safety to serve users that need solutions that work instantly and intuitively while ensuring their personal safety.
This has led to new features from new terminals to advanced services, such as real-time network monitoring and optimisation innovations for operators, that help customers enhance public safety networks with the latest innovations, while driving down total cost of ownership.
Motorola also highlighted its vision for the Ultimate Patrol Vehicle, following five years of field research, simulations and usability studies. The vehicle’s cockpit incorporates the latest technologies and easy-to-reach integrated controls for streamlined decision-making and actions by officers involved in high-stress pursuits.
For streamlined actions, the car has integrated, easy-to-reach controls with key functions tied to single button presses or simple voice commands. Its workstation runs applications such as Automatic Number Plate Recognition (ANPR) and real-time video streaming over LTE and TEDS (TETRA Enhanced Data Services) to empower and protect officers.
Motorola Solutions’ new launches announced today include the MTP3000 TETRA handheld radio series, the next generation Dimetra IP Micro platform enabling TEDS for commercial and enterprise networks, and next generation TRACES (TETRA RF Automated Coverage Evaluation Service) for operators.
It said the MTP3000 handheld radio series redefines mission-critical user safety with superior audio quality, an increase of 14 percent in range, which enables better in-building coverage, and an advanced audio system.
With the MTP3000 series, enterprise and public safety users will have the freedom to choose a device that fits their specific needs with no compromise in audio quality and safety, the company added.
Dimetra IP Micro platform delivers enhanced packet data services for safer operations as well as applications such as database lookups and reporting during field operations. It also provides optional authentication and air interface encryption to meet specific enterprise security and user identification requirements.
Motorola next version of TRACES builds on its unique network monitoring system to automate analysis and visualisation of data instantly and automatically. The new software will allow end-user administrators to collect network coverage data directly from TETRA handsets and collate the data to create a rich, unified view of their network and solve arising issues quickly and efficiently.
“With breakthroughs such as the MTP 3000 handheld radio series, our company is helping to transform user safety, equipment ease of use, and ruggedness and operational flexibility of mission-critical operations,” said Tom Quirke, VP and general manager of TETRA at Motorola Solutions.
“In addition, through our exciting technical advances in network proofing and performance, we are helping customers optimise their TETRA networks with enhanced performance capabilities and lower cost of ownership. Our continual focus on network technical innovations helps our customers deliver ‘much more with less’ while simplifying their migration to next-stage mission-critical networks,” he added.
