Motorola Solutions to Offer Sierra Wireless LTE In-Vehicle Routers
Monday, March 04, 2019 | Comments

Motorola Solutions teamed with Sierra Wireless to deliver Long Term Evolution (LTE) in-vehicle communications as part of its integrated platform for mission-critical communications. Incorporating Sierra Wireless’ AirLink LTE in-vehicle routers into Motorola Solutions’ offerings will allow first responders to securely share data while en route to or at the scene of an incident.

Motorola Solutions is offering the AirLink MG90 and MP70 LTE-A Pro routers that work on any commercial broadband network. They are also FirstNet Ready to operate on the network being built by AT&T in public-private partnership with the First Responder Network Authority (FirstNet).

The technology allows first responders to create secure Wi-Fi hot spots nearly anywhere. This will allow them to set up mobile workstations for fast access to agency information, including key databases and systems. They can also share pictures and videos of what’s happening with arriving personnel, as well as with specialists who can’t be at the scene.

“Working with Sierra Wireless, we’ll be providing first responders with in-vehicle broadband communications that will work seamlessly with several of our product offerings,” said Scott Mottonen, Motorola Solutions vice president of devices. “For example, users of our Si500 body-worn camera will have the ability to securely upload videos from their vehicles, saving precious time to share critical information with the command center.”

Motorola Solutions APX two-way radios can also be connected to Sierra Wireless routers to offload data applications. Data-intensive exchanges — such as updating an APX radio’s software or securely changing encryption keys — can be rerouted from a Project 25 (P25) radio network to a broadband network for improved speed and responsiveness.

“Together, we’re offering first responders tightly integrated, proven communications solutions that will give them the tools they need to respond to emergencies safely and effectively and to save lives,” said Tom Mueller, vice president, product line management, Sierra Wireless. “For 25 years, Sierra Wireless has been enabling secure, reliable communications systems for public-safety organizations. We’re proud to work with Motorola Solutions to continue advancing first responders’ communications capabilities.”
