Motorola Australia announces the launch of a new enterprise grade communication platform that enables seamless voice communication between digital two-way radios and smartphones.
Enterprise communication networks have traditionally been divided into two separate platforms – digital radio and mobile phones. MOTOTRBO Anywhere from Motorola Solutions allows businesses to combine the two platforms, providing global connectivity, instant communications and improved operational efficiency regardless of the location.
Organisations can now enjoy one-to-many communication and safety features inherent in digital MOTOTRBO radios, along with the convenience of an individual’s Android or iOS smartphone.
For example, busy professionals such as senior plant floor managers who would typically carry a mobile device to manage emails and phone calls on the move will now be able to use the same device to communicate with MOTOTRBO radio users in the organisation, whether the manager is on-site or outside the MOTOTRBO coverage area.
MOTOTRBO Anywhere allows workers to communicate with MOTOTRBO radio users and talk-groups with an easy-to-use application on their Android or iOS smartphones. Engineered around real customer requirements to be highly reliable, scalable and flexible, the solution is capable of working across carriers, locations, and devices, enabling customers to communicate with their MOTOTRBO network from any location.
Unlike other push-to-talk applications, MOTOTRBO Anywhere is integrated into the radio system infrastructure to deliver system scalability and a much more radio-like experience. The solution can accommodate hundreds of users, and every user can be configured with a unique profile, defining talk-groups and private call capabilities. Users get reliable, highly secure, business-critical communications, whether connecting via cellular networks or Wi-Fi.
MOTOTRBO two-way voice and data radios provide exceptional voice quality and long battery life, and boast one of the industry’s largest application developer programs. The solution is also consistent with Motorola’s broader strategy to enable broadband push-to-talk (PTT) as a complementary feature across its land mobile radio (LMR) platforms.
According to Steve Crutchfield, managing director, Motorola Solutions Australia and New Zealand, technology advances are now redefining unified communications, bringing the advantages of two-way radio one-to-many communications to smart devices in a cost-effective manner. Key benefits include increased operational efficiency, lower overheads, and devices being part of an all-in-one unified communications network.
