Motorola Solutions Debuts MOTOTRBO™ Ion Smart Radio

Users can attach photos to work tickets, use video chat for remote diagnostics and view detailed images, schematics, photos and videos.

CHICAGOMotorola Solutions, a communications equipment company, introduces its next-generation business-ready smart radio with voice, broadband data and multimedia capabilities to connect teams, inform operations, and keep businesses running smoothly.

The MOTOTRBO Ion smart radio is said to bring real-time intelligent data to existing business workflows. Its fully open Android application ecosystem allows for the integration of mobile data applications that commercial industries often depend on, such as those used for barcode scanning or team communication platforms used for messaging, meetings and shared content.

The radio’s 13-megapixel camera and 4-inch, high-resolution touchscreen allows employees to attach photos to work tickets, use video chat for remote diagnostics and view detailed images, schematics, diagrams, photos and videos. It works on the digital mobile radio (DMR) standard, Wi-Fi, public LTE and private broadband networks and is built to support searching, tracking, ticketing, scanning and collaboration to boost productivity, according to the company.

“We have spent thousands of hours listening to our enterprise customers, observing their needs and understanding the demands on them to drive efficiency at every level,” said John Zidar, senior vice president, Global Enterprise & Channels, Motorola Solutions. “They face countless moments each day where clear communication and collaboration is needed to manage tasks safely and efficiently. With the MOTOTRBO Ion smart radio, we have designed a product that meets their unique industry requirements, so that the technology supports the worker, and not the other way around.”

The MOTOTRBO Ion smart radio’s dual microphones, speaker size and audio engineering provide clarity and noise suppression for audio that outperforms smartphones, particularly in loud environments. It is said to be able to stand up to harsh conditions and exposure to dust, water and repeated drops.

It also features cloud-based programming and provisioning, remote updating and real-time device monitoring, allowing businesses to deploy and maintain their radio fleets with minimal touch and downtime.
