Motorola Solutions and Sierra Wireless Provide Broadband Communications for First Responders on the Road

Motorola Solutions products will work seamlessly with Sierra
Wireless’ AirLink
® in-vehicle routers for
mission-critical LTE data sharing and communications

CHICAGO–(BUSINESS WIRE)–When first responders are on the road, they need to be able to share
data in real time, regardless of where the mission takes them. Motorola
Solutions, Inc
. (NYSE: MSI) is teaming up with Sierra
Wireless
(NASDAQ: SWIR) (TSX: SW) to deliver LTE broadband in-vehicle
communications
as part of its integrated platform for
mission-critical communications.

Incorporating Sierra Wireless’ AirLink
LTE in-vehicle routers
into Motorola Solutions’ offerings will allow
police officers, firefighters and emergency medical personnel to
securely share data while en route to or at the scene of an incident.
Today, Motorola Solutions is offering the AirLink MG90 and MP70 LTE-A
Pro routers that work on any commercial broadband network. They are also
FirstNet Ready™ to operate on the network being built by AT&T in
public-private partnership with the First Responder Network Authority
(FirstNet Authority).

With this technology, first responders will have the ability to create
secure Wi-Fi hot spots nearly anywhere. This will allow them to set up
mobile workstations for fast access to agency information, including key
databases and systems. They can also share pictures and videos of what’s
happening with arriving personnel, as well as with specialists who can’t
be at the scene.

Working with Sierra Wireless, we’ll be providing first responders with
in-vehicle broadband communications that will work seamlessly with
several of our product offerings,” said Scott Mottonen, Motorola
Solutions vice president of Devices. “For example, users of our Si500
body-worn camera will have the ability to securely upload videos from
their vehicles, saving precious time to share critical information with
the command center.”

Motorola Solutions APX™ two-way radios can also be connected to Sierra
Wireless routers to offload data applications. Data-intensive exchanges
– such as updating an APX radio’s software or securely changing
encryption keys – can be rerouted from a Project 25 (P25) radio network
to a broadband network for improved speed and responsiveness.

Together, we’re offering first responders tightly integrated, proven
communications solutions that will give them the tools they need to
respond to emergencies safely and effectively and to save lives,” said
Tom Mueller, vice president, Product Line Management, Sierra Wireless.
For 25 years, Sierra Wireless has been enabling secure, reliable
communications systems for public safety organizations. We’re proud to
work with Motorola Solutions to continue advancing first responders’
communications capabilities.”

Sierra Wireless’ end-to-end
network management
enables simplified, remote and simultaneous
real-time configuration, control and troubleshooting of Sierra Wireless
in-vehicle routers, connected mobile assets and mission critical
applications.
