Home Business Telecommunications Motorola responds to high public safety demand in APAC

Motorola Solutions is unveiling new advanced technology solutions which it says will enhance the capabilities of nationwide public safety networks in the Asia Pacific as forecasts predict significant growth in the use of two-way radios in the region over the next three years.

The company’s latest technology solutions are on show this week at the Critical Communications World 2017 event being staged in Hong Kong.

Iain Clarke, corporate vice-president and general manager, Asia Pacific, for Motorola Solutions, says Motorola’s advanced technology showcase comes at a time when both mission-critical radio and public safety broadband solutions are in high demand throughout the Asia Pacific.

According to Clarke, the high demand is reflected in forecasts that by 2020 there will be almost 20 million active two-way radios in the region, while the North America and Asia Pacific regions combined will account for nearly 70% of all public safety broadband investment globally.

Clarke says the growth in both mission-critical communications and mobile broadband technologies is fuelled by demand for end-to-end, interoperable solutions combining the most needed elements of voice, data and multimedia communication.

“Public safety customers in Asia Pacific are among the most technically advanced in the world and are continuing their rapid adoption of mission-critical mobile intelligence services and smart technologies.

“This is enabling them to filter and analyse the vast amounts data available today so they can make better and faster decisions to protect our communities.

“Motorola Solutions’ deep domain expertise in delivering holistic public safety solutions will benefit those countries in Asia Pacific planning for large-scale, highly-available and secure deployments.”

Clarke says Motorola Solutions continues to invest in new capabilities and skills to accelerate innovation within Asia Pacific, from its partnership with Singapore’s ST Electronics to develop advanced communications technologies to its acquisition of a large team of mobile application developers through the acquisition of Gridstone in Australia.
