MOTOTRBO Nitro

Put Wi-Fi Outages in The Rear-View Mirror With CBRS

No matter the size of your business or the type of environment you work in, chances are Wi-Fi has become a valuable tool for your business-critical operations.

Where it’s impractical—or just too expensive—to install ethernet or fiber, Nitro powered by CBRS can provide the secure backhaul that increasing voice and data pressures demand. With Nitro, enterprises can bring secure push-to-talk to the smart devices their team is already using, connect radio systems together to support enhanced unified team communications, and freely use the device that suits each worker best, from virtually any location.

Software-Centric 
Land Mobile Radio Systems

Addressing the New Demands of Software-Centric Land Mobile Radio Systems

Today, 74% of all organizations use digital land mobile radio systems. So, we sought to better understand how system managers are evolving their methodologies and resource deployment to maintain and support modern, software-centric systems.

The results from our new Motorola Solutions 2018 LMR System Management Benchmark Survey are out and the findings are striking. LMR system managers still give more support to traditional system management measures than they do to software-centric ones. However, those who focus more on software-centric activities such as network monitoring experience fewer outages.
