Motorola debuts APX 7000 two way radios

Meets public safety specifications for mission critical communications

By CBR Staff Writer

Motorola has introduced APX 7000 two-way radios that enable multi-agency interoperability for mission critical first responders. APX is said to communicate with current and future P25 networks (FDMA and TDMA) and has integrated GPS.

APX reportedly meets public safety specifications for mission critical communications by improving officer coordination, response time and safety via access to real-time information for decision making. Designed for first responders by applying the science of High Velocity Human Factors (HVHF), the dual-sided portable radio provides optimal functionality and clear audio in a rugged form factor, the company said.

According to the company, APX supports future data applications as they become available (cameras and biometric sensors). The backwards and forwards compatible radio works on all P25 radio systems like ASTRO 25 plus SMARTNET and SmartZone analogue systems and is expected to continue working as networks migrate to new P25 Phase 2 technology (TDMA).

Bob Schassler, senior vice president of worldwide radio solutions, enterprise mobility solutions at Motorola, said: It is important to design for the end-user when developing technology for first responders. APX provides true interoperability and superior audio quality in one device to aid the multi-agency communication that is essential for mission critical operations. A true testament to Motorola’s commitment to P25, APX is an ideal technology for agencies looking to make long-term investments.
