Governor Reynolds Celebrates Deployment of Iowa Statewide Radio System


Motorola Solutions' ASTRO 25® mission-critical
radio network implemented on-time and on-budget

Iowa Governor Kim Reynolds celebrated the deployment of the Iowa
Statewide Interoperable Communications System (ISICS), built on Motorola
Solutions (NYSE:MSI) ASTRO 25® mission-critical radio
communication technology. ISICS is being implemented on-time and
on-budget, and is successfully being used by government and public
safety agencies across the state including first responders, hospitals
and schools.

On Monday, Aug. 13, Governor Reynolds placed a ceremonial "first call"
on ISICS at the Iowa State Fair. Using a Motorola Solutions APX™ Project
25 (P25) two-way radio, she demonstrated the power of interoperable
communications between state agencies, local county sheriffs, emergency
management departments, schools and hospitals from anywhere across the

"We built ISICS to help keep all Iowans safe," said Governor Reynolds.
"No matter where an emergency happens, first responders and partnering
agencies using the Motorola Solutions system can communicate with each
other seamlessly to coordinate a response and help those who need their

ISICS is built on the latest standards-based interoperable P25
technology and provides enhanced radio communication coverage across the
state's cities, hills and plains. It has been constructed to be
resilient against extreme weather conditions and other potential
disruptions. It provides clear audio where first responders can be heard
in noisy environments, even with sirens blaring behind them.

"The recent tornados that have swept through the central and
south-central portions of the state reaffirm the importance of a strong
communication network in our decision to join ISICS," said Brian Hamman,
Montgomery County Emergency Management Coordinator. "By opting into
ISICS, we'll be using a radio system that is built with multiple levels
of physical redundancies to minimize disruptions, which ultimately
ensures better outcomes for our citizens and first responders."

"Motorola Solutions and our team of Iowa-based business partners are
proud to have reached this milestone," said Chris Lonnett, vice
president of sales, Motorola Solutions. "The opportunity for local
government agencies across Iowa to leverage the network for
communication and cost savings is tremendous, and is already in motion
in more than a dozen counties."
