Originally aired: Thursday, December 6, 2018 -- 11:00 AM PT/2:00 PM ET

Narrowband Land Mobile Radio (LMR) networks and user radio equipment have been the cornerstone of mobile communications for First Responders for decades. The trend from traditional analog to more robust wireless broadband networks in recent years has improved the overall accessibility but questions remain on whether the new networks can provide all the required capabilities First Responders need to do their job.

Increasing demand for bandwidth intensive applications such as video, advanced mapping and analytics, alongside critical voice communications has been driving adoption of broadband LTE cellular networks, such as FirstNet.

Join our panel of industry experts for this insightful 60-minute on-demand webinar as they discuss the critical differences between LMR networks and LTE networking, how these technologies can successfully co-exist, and explore the future of critical communications for First Responders.

In this session, you will learn:

  • Current and future industry trends for LTE and LMR technologies
  • Challenges and obstacles with the convergence of technologies
  • Real-life examples of successful hybrid communication strategies for First Responders
  • Recommendations for future proofing your agency; adoption of new technologies and how to bridge the gap

Motorola Introduces Trio of APX P25 Two-Way Radios at APCO

August 02, 2010  | 


The APX 6500 is one of a trio of new two-way radios introduced by Motorola at APCO in Houston.

Motorola Inc. today unveiled the a trio of P25 Phase 2-capable additions to its APX P25 two-way radio series—the APX 7000XE Portable, APX 6000 Portable and APX 6500 Mobile—at the Association of Public-Safety Communications Officials-International (APCO) Conference in Houston.

The APX 7000XE is the first Motorola radio designed for use by first responders in extreme conditions and provides multiband interoperability in 700/800MHz and VHF or UHF.  The smallest handheld P25 Phase 2 capable radio, the APX 6000 portable, and the APX 6500 mobile were developed for single band radio users as a smart investment. The new additions also provide interoperability with Motorola's ASTRO 25, SmartNet and SmartZone systems.

Each radio has FIPS 140-2 Level 3 certified hardware encryption, integrated GPS for accountability and location tracking and future ready capabilities with P25 Phase 2 technology, expandable memory, over-the-air programming, audio, and other features like intelligent lighting.

"Motorola products are targeted for the specific needs of first responders in extreme situations," said Brenda Herold, corporate vice president of Motorola Enterprise Mobility Solutions. "We are proud to present the Motorola APX 7000XE as a solution to address issues like loud fireground conditions, large fire gloves that may restrict use of radio controls, and distractions stemming from limited screen visibility."

Firefighters and other mission critical users working in extreme or hazardous conditions may benefit from the glove readiness of the APX 7000XE. "The large knobs on the APX 7000XE make changing channels and adjusting the volume very easy with gloves on. These knobs are in a class all to themselves," said Lieutenant David H. Hudik, EMT- PRN, Elgin, Ill. Fire Department.  

The new T-grip design provides a wider control top with exaggerated controls and knobs, distinct channel knob "clicks" and a "high resistance feel" volume knob. A push-to-talk (PTT) button and a large emergency button located at the base of the antenna also make usage easier.

Noise reduction software combined with the latest AMBE digital voice vocoder and Motorola's exclusive Extreme Audio Profile work with the 1-watt speaker so that audio can be heard over background noise created by sirens and tools in an emergency situation. Lastly, a larger top display allows first responders to see radio status and channel or zone information without removing the radio from their turnout gear.

The APX 6000 portable radio is the smallest P25 Phase 2-capable radio designed specifically for mission critical users and comes in three models for different environments.  Key elements ranging from ergonomic form factor to advanced hardware include a dual-sided, two-microphone design, the latest AMBE digital voice vocoder, and Mission Critical Wireless to communicate with an encrypted wireless Bluetooth earpiece.

Key features of the APX 6500 mobile radio include a flexible platform to allow users to choose from 2 control heads, mid and high power models and different installation methods, and is also equipped with the latest AMBE digital voice vocoder.

The APX 6000 and 6500 radios also include a text messaging feature and pre-recorded voice file for the description of the selected channel or zone.
