Motorola Named Official Two-Way Radio Provider For The 2008 Democratic National Convention


DENVER. - In a move to ensure that Convention operations run smoothly and efficiently, the Democratic National Convention Committee (DNCC) today named Motorola the Official Two-Way Radio Provider of the 2008 Democratic National Convention, to be held August 25-28 in Denver, Colorado.

In this capacity, Motorola will provide the Convention with mission-critical communications hardware, 300 two-way radios, more than 900 iDEN® push-to-talk units and a radio frequency (RF) network that Convention planners will use to communicate with one another in and around Convention venues, including the Pepsi Center, INVESCO Field at Mile High and the Colorado Convention Center.

“With thousands of staff and volunteers, hundreds of vehicles and buses and multiple Convention venues, a rapid and reliable communications system is at the core of our operations infrastructure and essential to its success,” said Cameron Moody, DNCC Deputy CEO for Outside the Hall Operations. “As a veteran of Democratic National Conventions and other large-scale, multi-site events, I’m glad to have Motorola as part of our team to help ensure that the Democratic National Convention runs smoothly and efficiently.”

“Motorola is proud to be chosen as a technology supplier for the Democratic National Convention,” said Karen Tandy, Senior Vice President, Public Affairs and Communications, Motorola, Inc. “Motorola has been a trusted leader in mission-critical communications for more than 75 years and offers an extensive portfolio of solutions to meet evolving public safety and security needs. We also have a long history of supporting national conventions, as well as a broad range of civic activities, and we look forward to being a part of this year’s Democratic National Convention.”
