Motorola Announces 900 MHz Private Broadband Solution
Wednesday, January 22, 2020 | Comments

Motorola Solutions announced its ongoing development of a 900 MHz private broadband solution that the vendor said will offer critical infrastructure industries (CII) entities high power and interoperable communications. The announcement anticipates a regulatory proceeding by the FCC to realign the 900 MHz band to allow for broadband use.

“We are applying our significant patent portfolio and the high-power capabilities our customers enjoy in LMR to our developing broadband solution for critical infrastructure entities to allow for lower site counts and improved total cost of ownership,” said John Zidar, corporate vice president, North America commercial, channel and carrier, Motorola Solutions. “This high-power solution exceeds industry standards for adjacent channel leakage ratio and will greatly reduce the risk of interference with neighboring narrowband license holders and improve performance.”

The 900 MHz solution will include infrastructure, devices, software and service components to address the end-to-end needs of utility, oil, gas and other commercial customers. It will be offered in “the flexible commercial terms that align with the market needs,” Motorola said.

Last year, Motorola Solutions entered the Citizens Broadband Radio Service (CBRS) market with a new product line, dubbed MOTOTRBO Nitro, which will interoperate with its MOTOTRBO two-way radio networks. Nitro is an end-to-end Long Term Evolution (LTE) solution for the 3.5 GHz CBRS spectrum. Nitro networks can be connected to 900 MHz networks to provide seamless voice and data connectivity throughout a customer’s territory, the company said.

Motorola Solutions said its 900 MHz private broadband solution for CII entities will be further unveiled at DISTRIBUTECH later this month.
