Motorola Solutions releases WAVE 7000 to connect any network on any device
Written by: Laurence Doe | Published:

Motorola Solutions has released WAVE 7000, a combination of the company's land mobile radio (LMR) and Push-to-Talk (PTT) solution, which it claims allows users to "communicate across any network on any device". WAVE 7000 is now available globally.

LTE service providers can use WAVE 7000 to provide a new service to their current customers, unlock new customer bases and increase revenue by providing subscribers with PTT. Motorola Solutions states that the WAVE 7000 solution "will enable PTT capabilities on the new ESN public safety communications system as part of Motorola Solutions' contract with the UK Home Office". The company is the provider of user services for the new LTE-based broadband network which 300,000 emergency and public service users at more than 300 agencies across Great Britain will rely on.

WAVE 7000 is the latest release of a wider portfolio that enables groups using any combination of smartphones, radios or other devices to communicate seamlessly. Along with unrivaled reliability and industry-leading call quality, WAVE 7000's features include:

  • Network-level priority and preemption that ensure high-priority PTT calls get through even when an LTE network gets congested, which is critical for public safety customers
  • Emergency calls, ambient listening and hardware-based encryption, along with other features custom designed for public safety users
  • A roadmap to meet 3GPP Release 13 standards called “Mission-Critical PTT”
  • Combined with Motorola Solutions’ Convergence Suite, unified PTT, mapping, messaging and other functions across LMR and LTE
  • Support for hundreds of thousands of users on a single server and millions with server clustering
  • Unsurpassed availability through local and geo redundancy options
  • Flexible PTT call types including emergency, broadcast, group and private calls

“Many of our customers expect that their networks over the next 20 years will be comprised of a combination of LMR and LTE systems,” said Jeff Spaeth, vice president of Systems and Software Enablement at Motorola Solutions. “With WAVE 7000, customers are provided a unified experience across LMR and LTE that will keep teams connected no matter the network.”
