Score High Marks for Schoolwide Safety

Educational institutions, from K-12 through college, are being increasingly challenged to find smarter ways to boost student safety and staff efficiency with ever-shrinking budgets. Parents want to be confident their children are learning in a safe, secure environment. School personnel need to effectively interact together, whether they're managing sporting events or a maintenance emergency. And administrators must ensure a rapid, coordinated response to any situation with up-to-date technology that fits their funding.

The Challenge

How can you keep students safer in the classroom, on the school bus and at after-school events? Unify your staff easily and seamlessly, working around the district or across campus? Make sure parents are in touch and your community in the loop?

Two-way digital radio communication is the answer. It keeps staff connected, students secure and administrators, parents and the public confident.

Institutions are seeking smarter solutions, such as GPS location tracking to monitor buses, manage routes and enable parents to log in and see where students are. They're looking for safer solutions for their staff, too – from emergency alarms that activate voice communication to hands-free accessories so drivers can communicate safely while operating the bus.

The Solution

MOTOTRBO Radios for Education

Versatile and powerful, MOTOTRBO is the ideal communication solution. Using digital technology, it combines the best of two-way radio functionality with expanded capabilities to meet your communication needs. MOTOTRBO integrates voice and data seamlessly, offers enhanced features that are easy to use, and delivers safety-focused advantages like integrated Bluetooth®, GPS location tracking and Intelligent Audio that automatically adjusts volume to address background noise.

Only MOTOTRBO lets you choose the right device for the right user – such as the remarkably scalable XPR™ 3500 portable, the XPR 5500 mobile for unrivaled voice and data communication, and the ultra-thin, ultra-light SL 7550 portable.

Experience a New Class of Communication and Coordination

If a district needs to reroute buses around a major accident, they can send drivers the directions with text messaging. For increased safety, using a wireless Bluetooth® RFID scanner, school administrators can efficiently identify and track students boarding buses for a field trip by scanning the barcode on their IDs. And should a disturbance on campus occur, administrators can activate an emergency call feature to instantly alert staff and security. Connect everyone seamlessly and easily with MOTOTRBO's expanded portfolio of digital two-way radios and accessories.

MOTOTRBO Applications

MOTOTRBO Apps

For student transportation, MOTOTRBO applications offer enhanced safety and accountability. Fleet management applications allow you to track school vehicle data such as route adherence, schedule adherence, current location and current speed. You can also track events such as engine on/off, door open/close and lights on/off. When interfaced with an on-board RFID identity badge reader, you can even use your MOTOTRBO system to register students as they enter and leave the bus.

Voice Dispatch

Giving you centralized control of your workforce, these applications offer customizable user interfaces to allow your dispatcher to coordinate your staff efficiently and effectively. They also enhance business connectivity by allowing telephony interconnections and multi-system patching.

Command and Control

These applications work behind the scenes of your MOTOTRBO network to enhance the efficiency and responsiveness of your system. Interfacing to a Work Order Ticketing system, managing alarms and telemetry, and connecting to other messaging systems, they bring significant benefits to your school.

Location

Track your vehicles and your staff for improved safety, security and accountability. These applications allow you to make the most of MOTOTRBO’s GPS capabilities, and some even offer indoor location tracking capabilities.

Broadband Push-To-Talk For Enterprise

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.

SchoolSAFE

SchoolSAFE Communications

Interoperable Communications in Schools

SchoolSAFE Communications is a web-enabled two-way radio based product that allows for communications interoperability between school radio systems and public safety radio systems.

School-based radio systems are generally less capable and lack the channel capacities, power, and digital signaling to interoperate directly with public safety professionals who may have more sophisticated and much more advanced radio systems. Once the SchoolSAFE Communications product is in place then school security and public safety professionals from police, fire and EMS can easily initiate or receive communications with school personnel utilizing their existing two-way radios.

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.


Motorola Earpieces

Earpieces

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).


Motorola Bluetooth Accessories

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.


Motorola Chargers

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.


Motorola RSMs

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.


Motorola Mobile Radio Microphones

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.


Motorola Carry Solutions

Carry Solutions

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.


Motorola Installation and Mounting

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.
