Police stay a step ahead of criminals with world’s first handheld public safety LTE device

Motorola Solutions’ LEX 700 Mission Critical Handheld delivers a compact, rugged device with intuitive user interface and unprecedented access to multimedia public safety applications.

Criminals are getting more sophisticated, and technology is providing law breakers new ways to plan, execute and synchronise their actions. At the same time, law enforcement organisations with fewer resources are handling increased workloads. With an always-on Public Safety LTE broadband network connecting a multimedia command centre to a new category of Public Safety LTE data devices like the LEX 700, first responders are ready to meet new threats on the street with powerful new tools of their own.

The LEX 700 Mission Critical Handheld by Motorola Solutions, Inc. offers first responders a virtual partner, helping them monitor the environment, gather information and be more aware. With a compact, rugged design and quick-response interface, the device brings robust management capabilities to ensure IT staff can easily deploy its new fleet of IP data devices with the confidence of full visibility and control. Security and resiliency services ensure business continuity, protection of sensitive data and proactive mitigation of impending security threats.

“The introduction of the LEX 700 Mission Critical Handheld demonstrates Motorola Solutions’ continued commitment to LTE innovation. We are advancing a category of public safety multi-media devices that provide first responders with access to powerful applications and always-on public safety broadband, while giving CIOs the performance, reliability and control of a private network. The LEX 700 is a virtual partner for public safety, helping keep first responders safe and informed. It is the first device that delivers street-ready data, meaning a new level of intelligence and security” commented Bob Schassler, senior vice president, Radio Solutions, Motorola Solutions.

With rich media applications designed for public safety from Motorola and other third-party developers, agencies will have access to use cases such as:
o A shared operational view of an incident with high-quality, real-time video pulled from fixed and mobile cameras or streamed to the field from the command centre.
o Tracking information from mobile computer-aided dispatch (CAD) and real-time collaboration software lets everyone see the positions of field assets and know where they need to be next.
o Everyday tasks like ticket writing, identity verification and suspect booking are handled within minutes on the scene, and transmitted directly to headquarters so there’s no need to file paperwork.

The device is designed to deliver data, photos, video and voice quickly, reliably and securely over multiple networks. The LEX 700 provides multiple voice communications options, from making a simple phone call to joining a Project 25 (P25) radio talk group via a P25-LTE gateway. A dedicated Push-to-Talk (PTT) button and dual-mic, noise-cancelling capabilities help ensure voice will be heard in challenging environments.

“As we introduce the LEX 700, we are also launching service solutions – based on our public safety experience – for customers buying our infrastructure and devices to help ensure smooth integration, support and management capabilities, resulting in worry-free technology adoption. These robust services allow our customers to deploy these solutions while effectively utilising existing resources. When combined with our infrastructure, Motorola’s Public Safety LTE lifecycle services provide a rich, trusted operational framework for device provisioning, management and security – all supporting agencies’ next generation investments” said Bruce Brda, senior vice president, Global Services, Motorola Solutions.
