Motorola Solutions Releases ASTRO 25 Systems to the Market

Motorola Solutions, Inc. has announced that it has released ASTRO 25 systems with P25 TDMA trunking to the market.


Belonging to company’s Generation Public Safety portfolio of solutions, ASTRO 25 with P25 TDMA trunking promises to transform public safety operations and strengthen the mission-critical communications core.

This latest solution claims to double the voice capacity of Frequency Division Multiple Access (FDMA) technology for more efficient use of spectrum, providing users improved system access and offers seamless interoperability between P25 FDMA and P25 TDMA users, dynamically allocating a call based on available resources without any user intervention or awareness.

Brenda Herold, corporate vice president of Motorola Solutions said in a statement, “Twenty years ago at APCO, Motorola announced the first digital trunked systems, and 10 years ago, we implemented the first P25 system. Now Motorola Solutions is ready to ship the first P25 Phase 2 TDMA trunking system. We are pleased to offer public safety users the latest in P25 interoperable communications solutions, including our latest addition to the P25 TDMA portfolio, the APX 7500 Consolette.”

Herold said that with the shipping of P25 Phase 2 TDMA trunking, Motorola Solutions continues to lead the way in mission-critical communications by meeting their users’ needs today when they need it most.

Also, Motorola’s end-to-end P25 TDMA trunking functionality is included in the ASTRO 25 system infrastructure and dispatch consoles, as well as in the largest portfolio of TDMA devices, APX radios and the newest APX product, the APX 7500 Consolette.

Ray Lehr, interoperability director of the state of Maryland said, “Maryland is very happy to be developing a new, statewide P25 TDMA communications system that will connect first responders across our entire state. Maryland Gov. Martin O'Malley has made interoperability his number one goal, and this new, ‘state-of- the-art’ 700 MHz system will make that goal a reality.”

Lehr said that Motorola Solutions has assembled a very knowledgeable team, and they are making great progress and the first phase of the system will be operational next year.
