Reach Everyone, Everywhere with MOTOTRBO Systems
MOTOTRBO is remastering digital two-way communications – and redefining what customers expect from a radio solution. With the MOTOTRBO portfolio of portable and mobile radios, repeaters, data applications, accessories, software and services, you can put the right device into the hands of the right user. From the dispatch center tracking workers, to field work crews, to the technician repairing trucks, MOTOTRBO radios help increase efficiency, productivity, and safety.
Enhance Safety and Reliability in The Field
A MOTOTRBO digital two-way radio system keeps facility management and workers as well as workers in the field connected in real-time to ensure the safety and security of employees and to drive operational efficiency throughout plant and field operations.
"We have coverage issues around the outside edges, including a couple of substations that are in rougher terrain. We have hills and bluffs and several dead spots with the analog system," says Greg Salmons with Callaway Electric Cooperative. "Whenever you try to contact your crews and cannot reach them, there's the fear in the back of your mind of making sure they are okay. Having constant, reliable communications with those in the field is very important – especially their safety given the type of work they do."

WAVE Workgroup Communications
Smartphone Application for Broadband Push-To-Talk (PTT) Capability
Communication amongst and between groups of people is a critical part of the day-to-day operations of any organization. For some organizations, mission critical communications are inherent to the organization’s mission. This is true of organizations ranging from the military to workers on an oil rig where efficient communication can be the difference between success and failure – and between life and death.
Unfortunately, effective seamless communication is not easily solved when different people with different communications devices on different networks, in different roles, need to be connected.
The WAVE Work Group Communications solution is a software platform and suite of applications that remove the technical barriers to secure instant communication across any IP network. WAVE’s resiliency has been tested in some of the world’s most difficult environments including battlefields, mines and the aftermath of natural disasters.
The following paper describes how WAVE creates the infrastructure required for software-based mission-critical communications. The paper provides an overview of the basic components and technologies that make up WAVE’s core platform and the suite of end-user applications.
The Power of Your Radio Unleashed
MOTOTRBO radios are already best in class, but to help you work at your best, you need enhancements targeted to your specific workplace. Motorola has developed a line of accessories with unique features designed to optimize the performance of your radio in your work environment, unleashing the full power of the industry's most advanced digital radio platform.
Transmit and receive discreetly with a variety of earpieces that feature a streamlined design and rugged cables that withstand tough conditions. With inline push-to-talk and microphones, they're easy to use on the go. Our flexible array of surveillance kits includes two-wire kits (one wire for receiving, one wire for transmitting) and more discreet three-wire kits (separate wires for transmitting, receiving and push-to-talk).
Protect hearing and facilitate communications in noisy environments. Select from a wide range of comfortable, durable, lightweight to heavyweight headsets with noise-canceling boom microphones and in-line push-to-talk. Temple transducer headsets rest on your temple to convert audio into sound vibration and transmit it to your inner ear. You hear your radio and sounds in the surrounding environment; since the transducer sits in front of your ears, you can also wear earplugs.
Bluetooth® Wireless for Portable and Mobile Radios
Unleash the power of your MOTOTRBO radio without wires getting in the way. Motorola's extensive suite of Bluetooth accessories free you to take the radio off your belt, leave your truck or step away from your desk (up to 30 feet away) and stay connected. Choose from covert earpieces, heavy duty wireless headsets and Operations Critical Wireless solutions that let you move without constraints around the workplace.
Batteries and Chargers
MOTOTRBO batteries are developed, tested and certified for optimal performance with your MOTOTRBO radios and they outperform other brands of batteries. Reduce the number of spare batteries you buy with IMPRES™ batteries. IMPRES batteries can be charged 150 additional times versus a standard battery – a 43% increase in charge cycles. Choose from single-unit, multi-unit, travel and in-vehicle chargers and be confident your radio is ready when you need it. Get the most out of every battery and eliminate the surprise of "low battery alerts" with IMPRES chargers.
Remote Speaker Microphones
Communicate clearly in loud workplaces. Remote speaker microphones (RSM) have exclusive audio features for windy outdoor environments (windporting) and noisy environments (noise-canceling). IMPRES audio ensures your voice is heard clearer and louder regardless of how you speak into the accessory. The INC RSM suppresses extreme noise (high decibel equipment, heavy machinery) so you can be heard above all.
Mobile Radio Microphones
Choose microphones designed to keep workers safely connected on the move. Keypad microphones let you easily navigate menus on your radios, dial phone numbers and send text messages. The heavy-duty microphone is easy to use while wearing gloves and the telephone-style handset is ideal for discreet communication.
Carrying cases are available in sizes designed to fit your radio and battery and permit audio to be heard clearly. Our carry accessories keep your hands free, so you can concentrate on the task at hand. Choose from a wide range of nylon cases, leather cases, straps, holsters and clips, all designed to keep your radio protected, yet still easy to access.
Installation and Mounting Kits
Mount your radio on a desk or in your vehicle without compromising safety. Mounting kits give you the flexibility to mount the radio under or in your dashboard, between seats or on the floor. Remote mount kits allow you to mount the radio in the truck when dash space is limited.
