Motorola Solutions Envisions Virtual Reality Transforming Public …

SCHAUMBURG, Ill. Motorola Solutions1 (NYSE: MSI) is exploring a future where virtual reality will immerse a public safety command center supervisor in an incident scene. By using a combination of virtual reality and eye-interaction technologies to navigate through video and data feeds from multiple sources, incident responses can be quickly coordinated and information shared widely to help guide officers and protect people at the scene. Motorola Solutions will show live demonstrations of the virtual command center on Aug.

15-16 at the Association of Public Safety Communications Officials (APCO) 2016, held at the Orange County Convention Center in Orlando, Fla. (booth #1337). The virtual command center proof of concept uses eye-interaction technology from startup company Eyefluence, a Motorola Solutions Venture Capital investment, to envision the future of public safety. A look at today s smart public safety solutions

Today s public safety command centers can integrate the Project 25 (P25) standards-based, interoperable ASTRO 252 land-mobile radio (LMR) network for mission-critical communications with the power of LTE broadband and the latest in smart public safety solutions to turn data into intelligence. Since 2009, Lake County, Fla. has been using Motorola Solutions ASTRO 25 LMR network as the core network for emergency interoperable communications for several counties across Florida.

On Aug.

17, Greg Holcomb, Lake County public safety communications technology manager/E911, will join Motorola Solutions in a managed services panel discussion at APCO entitled Systems Down: Best Practices for Eliminating this Status from Your Network Performance Logs (see all Motorola Solutions presentations at APCO 2016 here3). The Lake County core network and many connected sites on this P25 mission-critical communication system are managed by Motorola Solutions, said Holcomb. With their robust managed services offerings, the company ensures 24×7 availability, reduced risks and maximized performance for our public safety network. Motorola Solutions’ CommandCentral4 platform provides real-time intelligence throughout all phases of police work from planning, to operations, to investigations. CommandCentral Aware5 aggregates video from several sources, allowing crime center analysts to view multiple feeds on one screen and share high-definition images of suspects, vehicles, license plate numbers and other critical information to responding officers in real time.

Law enforcement agencies have access to data from multiple sources including 9-1-1 calls, live video feeds, social media activity, nationwide databases and more, said Jim Mears, senior vice president, Motorola Solutions North America Sales. Motorola Solutions CommandCentral platform captures this information and turns it into real-time intelligence that helps first responders resolve incidents quickly and even prevent them from happening. The CommandCentral platform will be showcased at APCO 2016, along with several of the latest mission-critical communication solutions from Motorola Solutions Innovation Design Center in Plantation, Fla. This includes the Si5006 body worn camera and CommandCentral Vault7 digital management solutions, which automates and streamlines the processing of video from the point of capture to video management and review, and the LEX L108 LTE handheld device designed for the rigorous demands of real-world, front-line policing. Introducing new mission-critical solutions at APCO 2016 Motorola Solutions is launching the new APXTM 8500 P25 all-band mobile radio, updated ASTRO 25 network features and the IMPRES 2 energy management system.

  • APX 8500 P25 all-band mobile radio: With Motorola Solutions new APX 85009 P25 all-band mobile radio, first responders can use a single mobile radio to exchange critical voice and data communications such as text messages and GPS coordinates with multiple agencies and jurisdictions operating on different radio bands.

    Radio updates can be made instantly without interrupting voice communications; the radio does not need to be brought to a shop, saving both time and money. When connected to the Motorola Solutions VML750 LTE vehicle modem (now available globally), the APX 8500 frees up radio channels by offloading data to LTE.

  • APX Personnel Accountability for ASTRO 25 trunked networks: The APX Personnel Accountability solution is now available for ASTRO 25 trunked networks (which enable efficient operation of large systems with a small number of channels) and continues to also be available on ASTRO 25 conventional networks (where users select communication channels).

    Commanders using the APX Personnel Accountability solution can automatically perform tactical notifications and streamline roll call processes via a computer. They can automatically account for staff using APX radios at the scene of an incident. If a team needs to evacuate, commanders can instantly alert them through their radios and receive acknowledgements. Commanders can monitor radio battery life, identify radios and receive radio power down indications. If a radio is on the wrong channel, a commander can remotely switch the channel to the right one and ensure the entire team can communicate with each other.

  • ASTRO 25 Enhanced Geo Select: Geo Select provides hands free operation of APX radios when entering a defined region, or geofence, and this feature is now available even if the radio is no longer on the network. When entering a geofence, APX radios can automatically take action such as change channels, alert the user and change power levels. No manual intervention is needed.
  • ASTRO 25 Over-The-Air radio software updates: ASTRO 25 Over-The-Air Programming (OTAP) has been available for radio managers to remotely program APX radios. Now they will also be able to update APX radio software over-the-air for their entire fleet simultaneously over the course of a few days, without disrupting radio function in the field.

    With this new feature, there is no need to bring radios to the shop for software updates, saving both significant time and money.

  • IMPRESTM 2 energy system for APX radios: The new IMPRES 210 high-capacity, water-resistant batteries keep APX radios powered longer. When combined with the new IMPRES 2 charger, they deliver 60 percent more charging cycles than traditional lithium-ion batteries. The IMPRES 2 charger s enhanced diagnostics provide usage data including a battery s ability to hold a charge, letting users know when it s time to replace it. The multi-unit chargers also feature customizable charging batteries in service can be charged at 100 percent while those in storage can be partially charged to optimize battery life.

INPS chooses BlackBerry’s BES12 to securely manage its multi-platform mobile fleet

BlackBerry today announced that In Practice Systems Ltd (INPS), a leader in unique medical software for primary care and the wider healthcare environment in the UK, has upgraded to BES12 to securely manage its multi-platform mobile fleet.

“We needed a mobility solution that matched the characteristics we see in ourselves highly secure and productive. Working with our strategic technology partners, Appurity, BES12 was identified as the most comprehensive and cost-effective solution to empower employees to work on-the-go, safely and flexibly,” said Angelo Chrysanthou, Head of Information Systems at INPS. “It was important that the EMM solution did not restrict employees’ choice of device,” added Chrysanthou. “And it just works, delivering a massive return on investment.”

As a supplier to the NHS, INPS is mandated to handle its communications and flow of information securely, and be able to prove that Information Governance Statement of Compliance (IG SoC) legislation is being met. INPS, therefore, needed a comprehensive multi-OS EMM solution for its employees that complied with IG SoC mandates, while ensuring that staff had a flexible yet secure means of communication, whether they were in the office or on the road.
