Motorola Solutions Announces New Mission-Critical Devices and Software for First Responders


New ASTRO® software and APX™ 8000 hazloc
radio enable seamless communications for any rescue operation

Motorola Solutions (NYSE:MSI) continues to develop advanced
communication technologies built for the needs of public safety. The
company's first responder devices and its end-to-end suite of software
solutions work together to improve command center operations from the
time a 9-1-1 call is placed to after an incident is resolved.

"Motorola Solutions is paving the way for interoperable mission-critical
communications across land-mobile radio (LMR) and broadband networks,"
said Bruce Brda, Motorola Solutions executive vice president of Products
& Solutions. "Our Command Center software suite provides a unified
experience across emergency call handling, command and control, and
management of records and evidence. Information is shared seamlessly to
help protect those who protect us."

These technologies will be showcased at the Association of Public Safety
Communications Officials (APCO) 2018 expo, Aug. 6-7 in Las Vegas.
Motorola Solutions will be in booth #1015 and their NG9-1-1 solutions
will be showcased in booth #1325.


APX™ 8000H and APX 8000HXE

When first responders are surrounded by explosive gases and flammable
vapors, they need to know that it's safe to communicate. Motorola
Solutions is introducing two new hazardous location (hazloc) versions of
its popular APX 8000 all-band P25 radio, both certified to the Class 1
Div 1 standard by Underwriters' Laboratory (UL). The APX 8000H is built
for law enforcement, military and federal agencies. The APX 8000HXE is
designed for firefighters and disaster management teams.

LEX L11 – AT&T Certified and FirstNet Ready

The LEX L11 public safety LTE device is AT&T certified and designed for
the U.S. broadband First Responder Network Authority (FirstNet) or
similar global public safety networks. Motorola Solutions is working
with AT&T to provide first responders with the next generation of
software capabilities, including voice, data and message sharing across
a secure network to enable them to quickly access and coordinate action
based on vital information.


Critical Connect

When a large-scale emergency strikes, fast inter-agency collaboration is
key to a coordinated response. Critical Connect is a cloud-based
solution that enables any agency connected to this service to
communicate between Motorola Solutions' LMR systems and mission-critical
applications. System interoperability and data sharing is fast and
secure. Agencies can communicate via voice or Motorola Solutions
push-to-talk services while sharing broadband data information such as
pictures, videos, location and other intelligence information.

ASTRO® 25 Location on Receive

It is critical for command center dispatchers to know the location of
first responders – especially when call traffic is high. The new ASTRO
25 Location on Receive feature enables APX radios to automatically
report their coordinates to a mapping application, even while receiving
voice calls. It provides dispatchers with enhanced situational awareness
to help them respond to calls more effectively and keep personnel safer.
