Motorola Banks On Solutions For Simmering Data Demand
Quick Take Motorola launches upgrades to its public safety video solutions as it looks to fulfill the growing demand for data among public safety officials. At the same time, it is looking to preserve its dominance of the voice market while addressing the threats it faces from the nationwide public safety LTE network roll out. The company’s fundamentals are strong for now but could face challenges as LTE gets deployed widely and research into mission-critical voice transmission over LTE gains ground. Motorola Solutions recently launched upgrades to its existing line of video products in a bid to further its dominance of the public safety communications industry. The company launched the MVX1000 Digital In-Car Video System R1.2 and Real-Time Video Intelligence R1.1 products earlier this week. While the former captures data from within police vehicles (both video and audio) and relays it back securely to the headquarters upon arrival, the latter delivers real-time video feed to officers located anywhere in a device-agnostic manner. With demand for data growing and a push towards building a nationwide 4G LTE network for public safety purposes also happening for the same reason, it is a good sign for the future that Motorola is looking to keep up with changing times.
