Communications solutions firm Motorola Malaysia has demonstrated next generation public safety solutions for use by Asian law enforcement agencies during GPEC (Global Police Equipment Conference) Asia 2011 held in Malaysia.
GPEC Asia 2011 (from 27 to 29 June) at Putrajaya Convention Centre is a bi-annual regional platform for new technology solutions for law enforcement agencies. Motorola's new range of voice and data rich public safety broadband solutions should give new levels of situational awareness, according to Balbir Singh, Motorola Solutions Asia Pacific vice president, government and enterprise.
"Motorola Solutions is showing the APX7000XE P25 portable radio designed for extreme environments faced by firefighters in their missions," he said. "This is an advanced integrated command and control solution, which enables daily monitoring or adverse conditions monitoring remotely over secure public safety broadband networks. This allows command and control to track locations of police personnel/patrol vehicle as well as provides a dashboard of the incidents and situations with real-time video surveillance over wide area broadband network."
"In addition, real-time location, tracking and surveillance is delivered by powerful applications such as Real Time Video Intelligence (RTVi) & Automated Number Plate Recognition (ANPR) mounted on a patrol car enables police patrol vehicles to read licence plates faster and officers to make smarter decisions," he said. "Coupled with the mission critical core P25 network, the result is a coordinated response, improved workforce mobility for a safer community."
"We have been working with public safety agencies worldwide for more than 80 years," said Singh. "This gives us unique insights into the needs of public safety users now and in the future. Public safety mission execution has evolved from being voice-centric, to a combination of voice and data over the last decade. As a leading industry player, we see a growing demand for multimedia mobile voice, data and video solutions in the public safety community, as these capabilities shape the future effectiveness of public safety agencies."
"Motorola Solutions has a comprehensive next generation public safety communications portfolio and we are committed to bringing these solutions to the public safety community in Malaysia," said Mohd. Rauf Nasir, Motorola Solutions Malaysia country president and systems sales director, government and public safety business.
"What differentiates us from others is the deep understanding we have of the needs of the public safety users not just in our country but across the world," said Mohd. Rauf. "Malaysia is already equipped with the latest technology for voice and data radio communication. Next Generation Public Safety is the natural next step for the Malaysia public safety community to continue to lead in. We look forward to sharing our deep domain knowledge and technical expertise with them in this journey."
