Motorola Solutions showcase the latest in mission-critical innovation

Wed 19 Jun 2019
FYI, this story is more than a year old

At CCW, commercial customers in the transportation, energy and utility segments will learn how Motorola Solutions’ mission-critical ecosystem and the innovations in critical communications can be customised to meet their needs.

One recent example of this is Motorola Solutions’ successful integration work with Siemens to achieve railway signalling over TETRA networks to European Train Control System (ETCS) Level 2 standards.

Mission-Critical Communications

Highly survivable and intuitive solutions that first responders depend on under the most demanding circumstances. Includes the latest LTE and P25 technology, the new, ultra-portable public safety LTE infrastructure system, the LXN505 and TLK100 and LEX L11 LTE devices to show what is possible over LTE networks.

With LTE technology advancing new use cases and mission-critical land mobile radio (LMR) forming the backbone of critical infrastructure, Motorola Solutions will also demonstrate LTE-LMR interoperability. This comes as public safety broadband solutions are predicted to grow globally by 26 per cent to 2022, with the Asia Pacific and North America and regions projected to account for nearly 70 per cent of all mission-critical broadband investment globally.

Regardless of whether users carry a consumer-grade smartphone device or a ruggedised radio for more challenging conditions, interoperability between LMR and LTE enables everyone to communicate seamlessly and be at their best in the moments that matter.

Command Centre Software

Interact with applications that provide intuitive, real-time views of an incident as events unfold and make sense of big data.

Market research firm IDC predicts that the world’s data sources will grow from 33 zettabytes in 2018 to 175 zettabytes by 2025. IDC also claims that nearly 30 per cent of that data will require real-time processing. To overcome information overload, it is crucial for public safety and enterprise workers to get the right information at the right time and to unify the data captured both on the scene and in the control room.

CommandCentral Aware provides the world’s only unified, proven, end-to-end public safety applications suite. Hands-on demonstrations at CCW 2019 will show how unifying data, streamlining workflows and helping agencies evolve with new technology, enables teams to work smarter and more efficiently - from emergency call through to dispatching resources and ultimately, to case closure.

CommandCentral Vault provides a unified repository of digital information that can be securely stored and seamlessly accessed across appropriate systems. This comes as a CoPaCC National Police ICT User Survey concluded in late 2018 that collecting, converting and sharing digital evidence were the top ‘pain points’ for police forces.

Through computer-aided dispatch (CAD) systems including Premier One CAD, agencies can improve their response times, efficiently allocate resources and better inform first responders while creating greater situational awareness. This information can be shared with forces working on the ground through a mobile application solution suite powered by Gridstone, a Motorola Solutions company. Within these use cases, officers can securely access police databases in real-time, or report infringements and issues while in the field.

Video Security Solutions

See how machine vision and machine learning guide AI-driven image capture and analysis - automatically alerting response teams to unusual events and improving decision making with real-time sight.

A recent report shows that more governments are increasing their spend on the use of video security and analytics, with estimates that growth will increase to 30.5% through to 2023. The need for advanced video security in clear, as is the need for sophisticated video analytics software to analyse the ever-growing volumes of data that video systems generate.

Motorola Solutions will showcase its Avigilon video security and analytics portfolio, including the latest H4 Thermal camera. Combined with onboard self-learning video analytics, it can detect people and vehicles in areas with poor visibility, challenging lighting conditions, absolute darkness, and partly camouflaged scenes such as behind smoke screens.

Providing security operators with greater ease of access, Motorola Solutions’ demonstrations of the Avigilon Control Centre will show how AI can be used to automatically flag suspicious or unusual behaviour while taking context into account. For example, it can identify vehicles using seldom trafficked access roads or persons loitering at normally high-traffic areas. Customers can also experience true video content search functions that enable system users to simply tap on the image of a person in a security feed and find anyone with a similar appearance.

Managed & Support Services

Understand how our worldwide base of Network Operations Centres (NOCs) ensure uncompromising availability, resiliency and security needed to address new, more sophisticated threats emerging every day.

Motorola Solutions will showcase how its NOCs, staffed 24/7 by highly skilled teams, provides guaranteed reliability and availability to keep communications networks operating at peak performance while customers focus on their core operations.

Customers can also learn how cybersecurity threats and vulnerabilities can affect unprotected systems. This enables them to determine what level of support is needed - from technical assistance to advanced monitoring, network updates, through to fully managed and supported operations of their systems.

Commercial customers in the transportation, energy and utility segments will also learn how Motorola Solutions’ mission-critical ecosystem and the latest critical communications innovations can be tailored to fit their needs. One recent example of this is Motorola Solutions’ successful integration work with Siemens to achieve railway signalling over TETRA networks to European Train Control System (ETCS) Level 2 standards.
