Motorola Wins P25 Contract with Virginia City
Monday, June 11, 2018 | Comments

The city of Portsmouth, Virginia, will deploy a Motorola Solutions Project 25 (P25) network to provide communications technology and interoperable coverage to its first responders. The multimillion-dollar contract will modernize the city’s emergency communications platform and integrate with its about 1,000 P25 APX radios already deployed.

The ASTRO 25 software-defined platform converges radio and broadband services with additional functionality through the integration of voice and data. This system also enhances security with radio verification and encryption to prevent third parties from accessing conversations that includes mission-critical and/or personal information.

"The safety and security of Portsmouth will always be priority one, and it’s essential that we equip our first responders with unparalleled technology for mission-critical communications,” said Daniel Jones, chief information officer (CIO) of Portsmouth. “Based on our long history together, we knew that Motorola Solutions was the right partner to understand the weight and importance of our investment in these systems. Together, we’re empowering our first responders to communicate quickly and effectively in those emergency situations when every second counts.”
