The Enterprise Mobility Solutions business of Motorola, Inc. announced Motorola's first encrypted mission critical Bluetooth earpiece enabling secure communications when paired with the Motorola APX-series portable radios.
Designed specifically for the needs of first responders, Motorola's Mission Critical Wireless Earpiece provides simple pairing and fast push-to-talk enabling every word to be said and heard.
The earpiece also performs in strenuous environments and has been optimized to provide loud, clear audio in noisy conditions, while allowing essential on-scene sounds to be heard. In addition to technical performance, it was designed to be comfortable to wear for long periods of time.
Mission Critical Wireless is enabled by adding an option board or enhanced expansion board to an APX radio. Secure pairing is simplified with Motorola's exclusive ultra-short range pairing system. During the pairing process, the Bluetooth IDs and a strong 128 bit key are exchanged to ensure transmission security is virtually unbreakable. The earpiece pairs within an inch of the APX radio and is nearly undetectable beyond a few inches. It takes only two seconds to pair and less than five seconds for the wireless connection to be ready to use.
