The Enterprise Mobility Solutions business of Motorola, Inc. today announced new analog trunked portable and mobile radios and dynamic mixed mode repeater functionality for its MOTOTRBO Professional Digital Two-way Radio System to help organizations easily migrate from analog to digital technology.
New analog trunked radios joining the MOTOTRBO portfolio include the XPR 6580 display portable, the XPR 6380 non-display portable, the XPR 4580 display mobile and the XPR 4380 numeric display mobile. These radios operate on SMARTNET and Privacy Plus analog trunking systems and with a software upgrade, can operate on the MOTOTRBO Capacity Plus single-site digital trunking system. They will also operate with MOTOTRBO's advanced multi-site digital trunking system which will be announced later this year.
Key analog trunking features of the new MOTOTRBO portable and mobile radios include dual band functionality, providing operation in both 800 and 900 MHz in a single radio. The radios also meet the high capacity requirements of trunking users, with the XPR 6580 display portable and the XPR 4580 display mobile supporting up to 20 trunked systems and a maximum of 240 channels or trunked personalities radio wide.
The MOTOTRBO analog trunked radios also deliver flexible system operation, with the radios providing functionality in analog conventional and Type II 800/900 MHz Privacy Plus Enhanced, SMARTNET, StartSite, SmartWorks and SmartZone trunked systems.
Further easing the migration from analog to digital technology is MOTOTRBO’s new Dynamic Mixed Mode repeater functionality for the XPR 8300 VHF/UHF repeater and the new XPR 8380 800 MHz repeater. Dynamic Mixed Mode, expected to be available next month, provides users with the capability to operate a mixed fleet of analog and digital radios on the same repeater, eliminating the extra cost of separate repeaters.
