• Longstanding history of innovation and rich heritage of world firsts in mission-critical communication solutions
  • Builds a foundation for future innovation on Artificial Intelligence
LONDON, U.K. – Sept. 25, 2018 – Motorola Solutions celebrates its 90th anniversary. Since this day in 1928, Motorola Solutions has proudly delivered a range of innovations including mission critical communication solutions worldwide, and accomplished a number of industry milestones in its 90-year history: from pioneering technologies in the 1930s like automobile radios and two-way radios for public safety, to delivering the communication system that carried mankind’s first words from the moon in 1969. The company has been a major leader of the communications revolution having launched the first commercial handheld cellular phone in 1983.

Today, as a global industry and technology leader, excellence in innovation continues to shape Motorola Solutions’ future in the era of digital transformation and network modernisation with integrated LMR and LTE broadband solutions.

“It was always our mission to connect people through technology and particularly during those vital moments that matter in their lives. Our customers rely on us for the expertise, services and solutions we provide, trusting our years of experience and innovation,” said Iain Clarke, senior vice president and general manager, Europe, Middle East and North Africa at Motorola Solutions.

Today, Motorola Solutions serves more than 100,000 public safety and commercial customers in more than 100 countries. With over 5,500 patents and 568 million US dollars of R&D spending (2017), Motorola Solutions provides customers with pioneering solutions. In 2018, the company acquired Avigilon, which brings its advanced video surveillance and analytics platform into public safety and further expands Motorola Solutions’ portfolio with new products and technologies for commercial customers. Motorola Solutions also collaborates with innovative partners like the artificial intelligence (AI) company Neurala to develop real-time intelligence solutions that can learn at the edge and automatically search for persons and objects of interest.

“Our next industrial revolution will be fuelled by artificial intelligence,” adds Iain Clarke. “AI will be a core transformative way by which we are rethinking everything we are doing and applying it across all our products. Based on this development, Intelligence Augmentation, Intelligence Platforms and Intelligence-as-a-Service will be main drivers for the public safety and commercial innovations in the future.”
