Motorola Solutions has launched digital radios dubbed MOTOTRBO and WAVE 3000, a broadband push-to-talk (PTT) solution that delivers real-time voice and data securely over any network, using any device.
The MOTOTRBO digital radios use Wi-Fi connectivity for automatic software updates, saving hundreds of hours of lost productivity and come with 29 hours of battery life good for homes, hotels, offices, construction sites and large industrial plants.
Laurent Tribout, director of Sales Channels for Motorola Solutions Africa said the solutions aims at aiding firms to migrate to digital systems of communication away from the old, outdated analogue radios to help improve critical communications among businesses in the Kenyan market.
The firm also urged its clients to buy from authorized partner firms than just any local vendor.
”We don’t compromise on security, we make sure our products are safe. Fake products are coming out of Asia and we have seen fake radios explode in mines or during operations,” Tribout said. ”We condemn all these actions and urge potential clients to buy two-way radio systems from our authorized partners.”
According to the firm, anyone interested in selling Motorola Solutions products should register on its PartnerEmpower portal for training and vetting. The training and support will help its partners serve their clients better. The vetting also helps keep off unscrupulous firms posing as vendors.
Motorola Solutions Africa has been doing business on the continent for over 40 years and has built a trusted partner network that provides its clients after sales service and onsite and offsite support for products to ensure customer satisfaction and safety. In Kenya, Motorola Solutions Africa has 15 authorized partners.
Other new products launched in Kenya include the MOTOTRBO Capacity Max, a two-way radio system which can 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.
Next-generation 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. The SLR 8000 features a flexible architecture, enabling customers to easily configure the repeater to meet their system deployment needs for extreme reliability.
