Motorola Solutions Achieves Key Public Safety LTE Milestones

Demonstration of first public safety data device using a Public Safety LTE module and first BayWEB mobile data session highlight Motorola's Public Safety LTE leadership

SCHAUMBURG, Ill. - The Motorola Solutions business of Motorola, Inc (NYSE: MOT) today demonstrated live over-the-air (OTA) broadband video in the 700MHz Public Safety spectrum band to the world's first public safety data device using a commercial LTE chipset module. Motorola also congratulates BayWEB for their first live, OTA data session in the San Francisco Bay Area.


OTA broadband video streaming using a commercial LTE chipset module

- The LTE module used in the demonstration at the 2010 Motorola Digital Users Group Conference is ready for implementation in a broad array of Public Safety LTE devices in multiple form factors.

- The compact USB device uses a commercially produced chipset that supports the Band Class 14 Public Safety spectrum band. The demonstration is a key milestone in the development of open market components to foster a broad selection of LTE devices that are optimized for use by public safety and benefit from economies of scale from carrier LTE deployments worldwide.

- The portfolio of LTE devices will include portable data adaptors, vehicular modems and multimedia handhelds among others. Motorola is making additional investments to fully enhance standards-compliant LTE components to serve the unique requirements of public safety operations.

- Motorola's LTE technology demonstration includes dynamic prioritization and preemption for safeguarding LTE capacity for critical resources during an emergency response.

- Motorola has also developed real-time video intelligence that adjusts video to best match real-time wireless LTE bandwidth capabilities with the device screen size.

First data session on a deployed public safety LTE network

- The first live data session in the San Francisco Bay area marks the first operational use of the public safety broadband spectrum in a true Public Safety deployment.


Darren McQueen, corporate vice president, Private Broadband, Motorola

"Motorola continues to make technology breakthroughs in the
development of communications solutions for public safety. The
demonstration of the first 700 MHz Public Safety broadband- ready
module is a testament to our focus on bringing public safety-
optimized devices that will provide the advanced communications
tools public safety personnel need for officer safety and to serve
their communities."

"These demonstrations show our commitment toward developing a market-
ready LTE solution optimized for Public Safety. Motorola first
demonstrated Public Safety applications over a live 700 MHz LTE
system at the International Association of Chiefs of Police (IACP)
conference in San Diego two years ago."

Undersheriff Rich Lucia, Alameda County

"We are committed to bringing LTE broadband services to the Bay Area.
This first video session is a major step in making this system a
reality to provide broadband for Public Safety."

Commander David Wilson, City of Ventura Police Department

"The demonstration of the LTE module is a major step forward in the
deployment of Public Safety LTE networks. This device will be
critical in the deployment of systems that will provide officers and command centers with access to real-time data for increased situational awareness and community safety."
