Motorola Solutions will provide mobile apps, software and services for the FirstNet network as part of its role on the AT&T team, the company announced on 13 June.

“Public safety is looking for advanced, interoperable communications and collaboration capabilities,” said Chris Sambar, senior vice president-FirstNet, AT&T Global Public Sector.

“Working with Motorola Solutions and other key team members, we will help deliver broadband-enabled devices and apps that will be certified for use by public safety seeking FirstNet services.”

“We’re proud to further strengthen our relationship with AT&T and continue our unique role supporting the delivery of FirstNet services to public safety entities,” said Bruce Brda, executive vice president, Products & Services, Motorola Solutions.

“We’ll work hand in hand with AT&T and first responders to help provide a new generation of voice, data and messaging capabilities for US public safety.”

Motorola Solutions’ LEX F10 device, designed specifically for public safety, has been certified for the AT&T LTE network.

The company will also deliver a suite of mobile apps, such as mapping and messaging, built specifically for the needs of public safety.

Motorola Solutions said the suite will work virtually seamlessly between the FirstNet network and LMR networks, as well as other software and services that support and enable the new FirstNet communications capabilities.

“LMR and LTE networks will continue to coexist, and helping first responders bridge those technologies with interoperable solutions will be an important growth driver for our company,” said Brda.
