Motorola Solutions and Siemens have formalised plans to develop innovative technologies for the Australian industrial sector via an exclusive partnership.

Under the agreement, communications giant Motorola Solutions has joined the Siemens’ Solution Partner Program, becoming only the second company in Australia specialising in industrial networks to join the global program of organisations with highly-advanced, market proven technology development capabilities.

Motorola and Siemens — a global electronic giant — say they have delivered a number of successful projects and implementations in Australia through the combined strength of Motorola’s mission-critical solutions design and engineering capabilities and Siemens’ advanced industrial communications portfolio – including the development of complex engineering solutions for customers across the mining, energy and transportation sectors.

Minerals and Energy general manager for Motorola Solutions Australia and New Zealand, Martin Chappell, said the complimentary portfolios, resources and capabilities of both companies had enabled the successful delivery of complex and technically challenging projects.

“Many of Siemens’ best-in-class communications products and services are supported by radio frequency technology, a domain area that Motorola Solutions has pioneered throughout its history,” he said.

“By applying our strengths in engineering, project design, complex systems integration and service delivery, we ensure Siemens’ products perform at the highest levels across Australian industries that rely on mission critical communications.”

 Michael Freyny, the head of Digital Factory and Process Industries for Siemens Australia, welcomed the partnership, saying, “As digitalisation creates new opportunities across Australia, we are excited to combine our outstanding products with Motorola Solutions’ depth of application knowledge to deliver industrial network solutions for customers’ current and future needs across various sectors.

“Partnerships like this are important for Siemens because powerful communication networks create the basis for digitalisation across industries. Successfully planning, designing and implementing these solutions requires the expertise of partners such as Motorola Solutions who can provide support anytime and anywhere.”

The two companies list projects already delivered through the partnership, based on Siemens technologies, as:

  • Scalance: Highly-efficient industrial data communication networks with powerful components for reliable operation in all industrial environments; and
  • RUGGEDCOM: Products that set new standards for quality and reliability for communication networks deployed in extreme conditions and harsh environments. The range includes switches and routers, to wireless technology, software and applications.

And in 2016, Motorola Solutions and Siemens delivered a highly successful solution for an Australian mining company in South Australia, which they claim helped the company save millions in operating costs in the first year after implementation.
