On September 14, 2020, Motorola Solutions launched the next-generation mission-critical radio technology and performance and CirrusCentral core for the network-based ASTRO 25 P25 Land Mobile Radio (LMR) system. The radio is always consistent with the latest communication software and eliminates the need for public safety agencies to maintain internal physical backup central sites.
Scott Mottonen, Motorola’s senior vice president of solutions products, said: “Resilience is one of the most important functions of the ASTRO 25 network. “If the main site is affected by storms such as hurricanes or tornadoes, the system will automatically reroute radio calls to other networks. Continue to communicate. With the help of the CirrusCentral Core service, system administrators can virtually visit their secondary sites without going to the site in dangerous situations. "
CirrusCentral Core has a low upfront investment, no upgrade cost and a price per site, which can meet the unique needs of agents. It eliminates the need to purchase and maintain hardware used for internal deployment of auxiliary network cores. It is secured and monitored by Motorola Solutions' technical and network security professionals team to ensure that it is always up-to-date and available in emergency situations.
CirrusCentral Core and CirrusCentral Management are network-based system management software for ASTRO P25 system. CirrusCentral Management provides a web-based user interface for system administrators to monitor radio networks that span cities, counties, or states. They can safely obtain detailed insights about their system performance from any location and on any device.
CirrusCentral Management can also be continuously updated with new features to enhance system monitoring, including:
Provides the ability to search for radios and update them remotely.
Execute the diagnostic commands for remote diagnosis, verify the status of the device and reset the device remotely and safely.
Anomaly detection can identify real-time system anomalies and immediately send alerts to managers.
