KUALA LUMPUR: Motorola Solutions Inc, a business-to-business entity, is working with the Government to develop an eco-system of product design houses with local partnerships.

The move, it said, will contribute to the nation’s Economic Transformation Programme that the Government is spearheading.

It plans to roll out next-generation enterprise communications solutions, especially in the mission-critical public-safety segment of the market.

Such products would include walkie-talkies designed for use by firemen and in-vehicle real-time mobile video-surveillance devices for law enforcement officers.

Some of these Motorola products and solutions will be showcased at the General Police Equipment Exhibition & Conference Asia 2011 in Putrajaya in June.

Motorola Solutions was formed following the separation of Motorola Inc into two entities. The other portion is Motorola Mobility Inc, which deals in smartphones, Tablet computers and their accessories.

Balbir Singh, vice-president of Motorola Solutions APAC, said the split enables Motorola Solutions to focus all its energies and resources on delivering best-of-breed communications and mobile solutions for the government and enterprise sectors.

“Being leaner and more agile now, the company is embarking on a new and independent future, and will grow to even greater heights,” he said.

Its stable of products include two-way radios and barcode scanners, as well as mobility software for wireless service providers.

Aside from the public-safety arena, it is also active in several other vertical market segments, such as the transportation, logistics, healthcare, utilities and retail industries.

Motorola has been operating in Malaysia for more than 37 years, starting with a manufacturing facility in Penang in 1974.

This facility makes two-way radios, as well as Terestrial Trunked Radio and APACO P25 communications products for the global market.

It also houses the company’s first two-way-radio design centre in Asia, which has more than three decades of R&D expertise.
