Public safety mobile apps launched by Motorola
A suite of public safety mobile applications will be launched by Motorola Solutions.
The technology will provide real-time intelligence to public safety users.
With the expansion of public safety broadband, interoperable mobile applications are a highly effective way to provide critical intelligence to officers in the field and personnel at the command centre.
“The need for real-time intelligence has never been more important to public safety users,” said Bruce Brda, executive vice president, products and services at Motorola Solutions.
“Apps for messaging, mapping and other tasks are part of daily life for citizens, but these capabilities have not yet been developed and deployed for public safety users. Motorola Solutions’ suite of public safety mobile apps is purpose-built for the needs of our customers and provides an integrated, interoperable solution for sharing critical information and intelligence.”
The suite includes a core set of apps for public safety communication and collaboration, to which advanced capabilities such as apps for live video streaming, electronic citations, database search and collaborative ‘whiteboarding’ will be added.
The communication and collaboration suite is an integrated set of mobile apps including messaging, mapping, the WAVE push-to-talk solution and telephony for secure, encrypted phone calls.
The public safety mobile apps core suite works across networks and devices, giving users access to real-time information whether they are using a radio on a land mobile radio network or a smartphone on a broadband network. The apps are connected by a capability that enables interactions between apps without requiring the user to return to the app launcher. Users can seamlessly move from app to app.
It requires the authentication of users, devices and infrastructure, and all media is encrypted. The suite also features convenient single sign-on — requiring users to log in only once to access all applications — and a common address book that carries consistent groups and contact lists across apps.
A multimillion-dollar public safety radio system upgrade is being undertaken at Anne Arundel County.
