FLEET AND FACILITIES MANAGERSCAN IMPROVE SERVICE. AND DRIVE DOWN COSTS.

COMMUNICATE CLEARLY WITH EXCEPTIONAL AUDIO.

Using the latest digital technology, MOTOTRBO provides clearer and crisper voice communications over a wider area without interference or distracting static. MOTOTRBO digital radios deliver both voice and data with greater accuracy, resulting in clear communications with your workers no matter where they are in the field.

SHARE INFORMATION QUICKLY, EASILY AND SEAMLESSLY.

Whether you need to send directions to the next customer location or receive notification a delivery is complete, MOTOTRBO’s text messaging feature enables communication between radios and dispatch systems, between radios and email-addressable devices, and to remote PC clients attached to radios.

KEEP CONNECTED WITH YOUR WORKERS IN THE FIELD.

With the MIP 5000 radio console, you can have centralized dispatch capability for visibility and access to your mobile work teams no matter where the job takes them.

AVOID DELIVERY DELAYS AND CUSTOMER DISSATISFACTION.

With MOTOTRBO, drivers can quickly notify dispatch about delays or shipment issues and confirm delivery locations without using personal cell phones. And the GPS technology lets you track valuable cargo, monitor assets and overcome delays.

EXTEND COVERAGE AND EXPAND CAPACITY.

Meet your communication needs today and in the future with a variety of MOTOTRBO solutions:

  • IP Site Connect uses an IP network to extend the voice and data capabilities of MOTOTRBO. You can create a continuous network that covers your employees at 15geographically-dispersed site. Or you link up to 15 sites to create wide area coverage at a single location.
  • Capacity Plus is the single site digital trunking solution that maximizes the capacity of your MOTOTRBO system. Use it to enable a high volume of voice and data communication for over a thousand users at a single site, without adding new frequencies.
  • Linked Capacity Plus is an entry level, multisite digital trunking system configuration for the MOTOTRBO platform. It leverages the high capacity of Capacity Plus, and the wide area coverage capabilities of IP Site Connect.
  • Connect Plus is the scalable, multi-site digital trunking solution. With our high capacity MOTOTRBO system, calls can be queued during busy times until an open channel is available, important users can be assigned priority status when the system is in high demand, and a wireline console can be used for centralized dispatch.

CONTROL FUEL COSTS

Traffic congestion not only delays deliveries, it increases fuel costs. With MOTOTRBO™, dispatchers can monitor traffic conditions and instantaneously transmit alternate routes to employees in the field. They can also notify drivers of last-minute changes in cargo requirements or pick-up schedules. And with MOTOTRBO’s integrated GPS module, dispatchers can identify vehicle location in real-time and dispatch the closest driver to respond to pick-up and delivery requests.

GET EXCEPTIONAL VALUE AND CUT OPERATING COSTS.

By utilizing TDMA digital technology, MOTOTRBO enables two virtual channels within a single 12.5 kHz channel – double the capacity of analog. Since you don’t need a second repeater, you save on equipment costs. By integrating voice and data in one device. MOTOTRBO saves you the expense of additional equipment for text messaging and GPS location tracking.

IMPROVE WORKFORCE SAFETY ON THE ROAD OR AT YOUR FACILITY

Motorola’s transmit interrupt suite allows multiple talk group conversations to be interrupted for urgent messages. Emergency notification lets drivers notify dispatch of a situation with just a push of the button.

In non-emergencies, dispatchers can text message drivers with information that can be read later to help them keep their eyes on the road. And with our hands-free audio accessories, workers at the warehouse or shipping dock can talk and listen to their portable radio while staying focused on the job.

DRIVERS AND OPERATORS CAN GET THE INFORMATION. NO MATTER THE LOCATION.

HEAR CLEARLY IN LOUD SETTINGS.

Warehouses, shipping docks and delivery locations can be noisy places. MOTOTRBO’s Intelligent Audio feature, available on certain models, automatically adjusts the radio’s volume to fit the noise level in the environment. The volume turns up in noisy places so they won’t miss a call and turns down in quiet settings so they won’t disturb others. And with MOTOTRBO’s background noise suppression, you can be confident communication comes through loud and clear.

GET LONGER BATTERY LIFE FOR LONG WORK SHIFTS.

Long hours on the road or lots of deliveries often requires a long shift. MOTOTRBO offers enhanced battery life that supports those shifts. Motorola’s digital TDMA two-way portable radios operate longer – up to 40% longer between recharges compared to analog radios.

DEPEND ON DURABLE RADIOS THAT DELIVER.

Your workforce operates in tough environments and two-way radios need to be tough-as-nails. MOTOTRBO™ radios meet the most demanding specifications including IP57 for submersibility in water (portable models), and U.S. Military 810 C, D, F and G. Our “intrinsically safe” portable radios are ideal for locations where flammable gas, vapors or combustible dust may be present.
