Motorola Solutions reveals 900 MHz private broadband solution
Motorola Solutions has announced ongoing development of a 900 MHz private broadband solution that will offer high-power and interoperable communications for critical infrastructure entities in the US.
The announcement anticipates a regulatory proceeding by the US FCC to realign the 900 MHz band to increase capacity for broadband use.
“We are applying our significant patent portfolio and the high-power capabilities our customers enjoy in land mobile radio to our developing broadband solution for critical infrastructure entities to allow for lower site counts and improved total cost of ownership,” said John Zidar, Corporate Vice President, North America Commercial, Channel & Carrier, Motorola Solutions.
“This high-power solution exceeds industry standards for adjacent channel leakage ratio and will greatly reduce the risk of interference with neighbouring narrowband licence holders and improve performance.”
The company said that its solution will include infrastructure, devices, software and service components for the utility, oil, gas and other commercial sectors.
“As a founding member of the Utility Broadband Alliance, Motorola Solutions has been advocating for the secure and reliable broadband networks that are essential to the continued modernisation of the digital grid,” said Bobbi Harris, Director of Member Engagement and Operations at the Alliance.
“We appreciate its commitment to meeting our industry’s evolving needs, from land mobile radio for mission-critical voice communications to long-range data communications, video and IoT.”
