Motorola Solutions has unveiled new innovations across its safety and security ecosystem, designed to help public safety agencies and enterprises communicate, collaborate and operate more efficiently and effectively.

The highlights on display at Critical Communications World 2024 (CCW) include the new DIMETRA™ Connect solution and MXP660 TETRA radio, which allows front-line responders to automatically switch between land mobile radio (LMR) and broadband networks.

“We're taking TETRA further to help first responders stay connected wherever they go," said Michael Kaae, Corporate Vice President, Motorola Solutions. “Our new DIMETRA Connect solution automatically switches radio users between TETRA to broadband networks to support seamless communication indoors or when travelling beyond geographical radio network coverage.”

Broadband Innovations for Mission-Critical TETRA Radio

DIMETRA Connect's design safeguards the focus of front-line responders by seamlessly switching between Terrestrial Trunked Radio (TETRA) and broadband networks without the need for manual intervention. This ensures that users' preferred features and talkgroups remain intact. The new MXP660 carries all the hallmarks of a Motorola Solutions mission-critical TETRA radio, with advanced capabilities, including built-in LTE, AI-trained background noise suppression for clear audio and high-power transmission for extended operational range.

Denmark’s Sikkerhedsnet (SINE) network will be among the first to deploy DIMETRA Connect to provide better security, protection and operational performance for their first responders. It is one of thousands of radio systems offered by Motorola Solutions, capable of operating from single sites to scalable nationwide solutions worldwide, including Austria’s TETRON Digitalfunk, Norway’s Nødnett and Portugal’s SIRESP.

“The ability to automatically switch from LMR to broadband when we move deep inside buildings or into heavily built-up areas is essential to our missions,” said Mogens Sandberg Brix, Division Officer and Inspector at Greater Copenhagen Fire Department. “Our teams can stay connected as they fight fires or navigate myriad challenging environments, without losing focus on their priority of protecting life and property.”

“TETRA will continue to play a central role in mission-critical voice communications for public safety agencies and enterprises,” said Ildefonso De La Cruz Morales, Principal Analyst, Critical Communications at Omdia. “Innovations like DIMETRA Connect are enabling organizations to invest in a communications roadmap with proven, reliable LMR voice communications at the centre, leveraging broadband to extend coverage whilst reducing up-front infrastructure costs.”

‘Solving for Safer’ Innovations

Motorola Solutions showcased several innovations at CCW 2024, including the availability of its mobile policing application platform PSCore in Android; V500 body camera; M500 in-car video system powered by advanced AI and hi-res cameras; long-range multi-sensor cameras; and the introduction of Avigilon Unity, an on-premise video security and access control.
