To offer reliable, adaptable communications solutions to customers in public safety and utilities, ASTRO 25 system with P25 TDMA trunking solution have been introduced. Both the products are the part of Motorola’s (News - Alert) Next Generation Public Safety portfolio of solutions that are developed to transform public safety operations and strengthening the mission-critical communications core.
Motorola is a supplier of communication systems used in mission-critical communication solutions. According to a press release, the P25 communications system is being used by Apopka police, fire and emergency management personnel, as well as by Apopka Public Works. It allows Apopka to enhance coverage and interoperability with surrounding agencies utilizing 700 and 800 MHz frequencies, without the need for adding frequency bands, antenna sites or stations.
Earlier, Apopka was using Motorola’s award-winning APX series of P25 mission-critical two-way radios, including 85 APX 7500 mobile radios and 250 APX 7000 portable radios.
Richard Anderson, chief administrative officer, City of Apopka said, “As a Motorola customer for more than 30 years, we were confident that Motorola Solutions’ P25 TDMA solution would double our system capacity and improve our overall operations. Multiple agencies share our system; it did not matter that we adopted P25 TDMA and some others have not done so. We can communicate seamlessly with all of them, including public works operating in 700 MHz FDMA”.
Based on cutting-edge technology, the Apopka ASTRO 25 system is also updated with integrated voice and data capabilities, secure encrypted communications, automatic vehicle location (AVL) and over the air programming (OTAP).
Marshall Wright, vice president, Sales and Services, Motorola Solutions said, “Motorola Solutions is proud of its role in bringing Next Generation Public Safety solutions to Apopka and helping ensure that first responders have the communications they need in the moments that matter for the city and its residents.”
