Broward County on leading edge of emergency communications


When a hurricane or other emergency strikes, Broward County first responders are at the scene to ensure the safety of residents and visitors from the beach to the Everglades. The county has selected Motorola Solutions (NYSE: MSI) for their new ASTRO 25 land-mobile radio (LMR) network that will be interoperable with other agencies across the state. This new system will be a more efficient digital network built on the latest standards-based Project 25 (P25) technology for seamless public safety communications across agencies. The ASTRO 25 network will provide enhanced coverage in Broward County and with surrounding municipalities. It is resilient against extreme weather conditions and other potential disruptions. It also provides clearer audio where first responders can be heard in noisy environments, even with sirens blaring behind them. Motorola Solutions will manage the system for the next 10 years, making sure first responders are using the latest software and applications for reliable, secure communications allowing them to focus on their top priority – the people they protect.

In case of a natural disaster or large event, Motorola Solutions is dedicated to supporting Broward County before, during and after it takes place. The company has been standing by its Florida customers for more than 70 years, assisting in hurricanes, Super Bowls, political conventions and more.
