New public safety technology and solutions to be unveiled at APCO:

Mobile Office for Government solutions
Mobile Office for Government solutions are applications, devices, networks and services that allow first responders and government agencies to turn patrol cars and other vehicles into virtual offices. Mobile Office for Government extends field presence and personnel accountability, delivering remote and mobile access to critical data. Crucial video and data information can be shared rapidly. Motorola’s extensive network solutions provide users with access to databases they use back at headquarters, even while moving at highway speeds.

Intelligent Video solutions featuring Mobile Video Sharing
Intelligent Video solutions is a growing suite of video applications and equipment that provide first responders with mission critical information both in the field and en-route to an incident response.
Users gain video information necessary for quicker response and better decision making during an incident, increasing safety for responding personnel and the community. Motorola’s Intelligent Video solutions provide capabilities in the following areas: surveillance, recording, management, analytics, archiving, video access and delivery, video-enabled applications, and streaming video.

Mobile Video Sharing, the newest edition to the Intelligent Video solutions suite, combines streaming video feeds from Motorola’s Mobile Video Enforcer (MVE) and Intelligent Video Surveillance and Control (iVSC) offerings into one application designed for one-click sharing with a designated user group. Optimized for wireless mobile environments, Mobile Video Sharing allows users to send and receive high-quality video providing greater situational awareness and improved first responder safety.

Event Management solutions
Event Management solutions combine easily deployable applications, devices, and networks into a functional solution that enables rapid information sharing with broadband access to databases, attendee lists, Internet, video surveillance, and other mission critical applications. Using MOTOMESH, Motorola’s multi-radio broadband mesh network solution leveraging the licensed 4.9GHz public safety frequency and/or the unlicensed 2.4GHz radio band, the Motorola Event Management solution gives incident commanders mobile access to the pre-emptive intelligence necessary to keep attendees secure, resulting in a safer and more enjoyable experience.

These comprehensive mission critical, incident command and law enforcement solutions will be showcased at APCO in Motorola’s seamless broadband command vehicle running over a MOTOMESH wireless network. Broadband internet connectivity, live video and remote database access is provided to all passengers in the command vehicle, even at highway speeds. While stationary, the seamless broadband command vehicle becomes a Wi-Fi hotspot and large host of monitoring and analytical tools that can be utilized at an incident site by command personnel.

Additionally, Motorola introduces the Motorola Application Developer Program. In order to offer the widest range of validated applications to Motorola MOTOMESH customers, and to further extend the value of their wireless data network, the Motorola Application Developer Program tests developer applications to ensure compatibility with the Motorola MOTOMESH network. Applications that have been successfully tested on the Motorola MOTOMESH wireless broadband network are awarded the “MOTOMESH Ready” mark for use in their communications. Providing complementary and compatible technology offering for customers of all sizes further demonstrates Motorola’s commitment to open, standards-based network architecture that is able to support a variety of applications.
