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. Users in the field need solutions that work instantly and intuitively while ensuring their personal safety. Security and safety are at the heart of Motorola's next generation TETRA solutions, ranging 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 is also highlighting its vision for the Ultimate Patrol Vehicle – the result of 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 like never before. Public safety and enterprise organizations need to deliver safer and more flexible operational capabilities while handling increasing workloads with fewer resources. Meanwhile, organizations require more data for applications to enhance operations with the latest broadband innovations. Motorola is fully committed to the future of TETRA and TEDS as the core of mission-critical communications and at TETRA World Congress (TWC) will demonstrate how to extend its TETRA solutions with a powerful combination of broadband technologies, multimedia applications and advanced devices.
