Motorola recently showcased advanced solutions and futuristic technologies for safer cities and secure businesses across Africa at the continent’s first event dedicated to critical communications.

Motorola Solutions’ mission-critical radio and broadband technologies, innovative software applications and future public safety technology concepts were all presented at Mission Critical Africa, in Cape Town in November.

Danani Longwe, Motorola Solutions General Manager for South Africa, said there’s a growing need among public safety agencies for critical actionable data. “Emergency services, along with the rest of the public sector are eager to gain advantages of technology to increase safety and efficiency. There is increasing demand for broadband technologies, mobile apps, next generation command and control and advanced security solutions” Said Longwe. “The majority of our customers in the region already understand that access to real-time intelligence is critical for their work”.

“At Mission Critical Africa we will demonstrate a powerful set of software tools that help make cities safer by increasing public safety agencies’ situational awareness and capabilities. Other featured Motorola Solutions devices and apps, enable organizations to work more safely and collaboratively, thus helping their business thrive”.

Tunde Williams, Head of Field and Solutions Marketing EMEA for Motorola Solutions, said the company’s vision for smarter public safety includes use of big data and artificial intelligence for greater efficiency. “The abundance of data along with advanced AI technologies, such as deep learning and computer vision, will play a growing role for public safety agencies. With the help of technology we are moving to an era where we will be able to predict and prevent crime before it happens”.

“Public safety organisations need not only the technology and tools to meet their evolving needs, but also a partner with specialised knowledge and experience to understand their challenges, find solutions and imagine new ways to get the job done” said Williams.
