As a Motorola Platinum Partner, we put out feelers just for the sake of self-preservation when it comes to news from Chicago, where the Motorola HQ worldwide is located.
Today, exciting news reaches us: Motorola Solutions takes over one of the leading manufacturers of End-to-End video security solutions. In its segment, IndigoVision is not only a hardware manufacturer but also a software developer, among other things for automatic detection of body temperature, an interesting feature due to the COVID 19 pandemic.
The synergies resulting from these areas could be even more interesting. It should be noted that Motorola radios, especially TETRA radios but also increasingly DMR radios, are very often used in safety-critical areas - e.g. in airports or by security forces.
For several years now, we have recognised that Motorola is increasingly trying to cover areas other than pure radio communication. Body cams, interesting dispatcher solutions and the networking of the various technologies are increasingly becoming the focus of the group.
So far the assessment of Spreenauten GmbH - let Motorola have its say:
