The global pandemic has led companies to change and adapt their operations to meet changing demands and meet new challenges. For many, this has meant a greater focus on collaboration and productivity, bringing to the fore the need for simple and reliable voice, video and data communications, as well as applications that make both individual staff and work teams more efficient. . Motorola Solutions today announced the launch of a next-generation smart radio with voice, broadband data and multimedia capabilities to connect computers, report operations and keep businesses running smoothly.

The MOTOTRBO Ion smart radio provides real-time smart data to existing workflows. Its fully open Android application ecosystem enables seamless integration of mobile data applications that all types of industries depend on, such as those used for enterprise-grade barcode scanning, as well as work communication platforms. in teams such as messaging, meetings and shared content. Its 13 megapixel camera and 4 ”high resolution touch screen allow workers to attach photos to job cards, use video chat for remote diagnostics and view detailed images, schematics, diagrams, photos and videos. This simplifies device management and security, allowing businesses to move toward using a single device that offers the simplicity and reliability of PTT radio with the additional capabilities of a smartphone, scanner, and tablet.

“Having robust and reliable voice communication is paramount when working in noisy industrial equipment and in hot, dusty and humid underground environments,” said David Sibthorpe, plant manager for CPB Contractors, hired to support the subway extension. Sydney, Australia's largest public transport project. “When you're working around a 130 metric ton roadhead and need to tell the operator to stop instantly, this couldn't be more important. The MOTOTRBO Ion smart radio combines reliable voice communication with data capabilities for quick access to valuable data such as system diagrams, online inspection forms, weather forecasts, and group messaging applications, helping to bring more efficiency to the day worker's day ”.

The MOTOTRBO Ion smart radio operates on the digital mobile radio (DMR) standard, Wi-Fi, public LTE, and private broadband networks. It is designed to help in the search for material, traceability, ticketing, scanning and generate an increase in productivity, especially within industries such as manufacturing, transport, logistics and hospitality, which depend on workers with mobility. It enables airport workers to coordinate passenger flow in a safe and efficient manner, truck drivers receive vital route information through digital job tickets, and security personnel stream high definition video from stadiums or theme parks.

"We've spent thousands of hours listening to our business customers, observing their needs and understanding their demands to drive efficiency at every level," said John Zidar, senior vice president, Global Enterprise & Channels, Motorola Solutions. “Every day they face countless situations where they need clear communication and collaboration to manage tasks safely and effectively. With the MOTOTRBO Ion smart radio, we have designed a product that meets the specific requirements of the industry, so that the technology is compatible with the worker and not vice versa. ”

The MOTOTRBO Ion smart radio is specifically designed for a wide variety of business environments. Dual microphones, speaker size, and audio engineering provide clear, transparent communication and noise suppression for powerful audio that outperforms smartphones, especially in noisy environments. With an ultra-rugged design, it stands up to harsh conditions and exposure to dust, water, and multiple drops. It includes cloud-based provisioning and scheduling, remote updating, and real-time device monitoring, allowing companies to deploy and maintain their fleets of radios with minimal downtime.
