Motorola To Build 700 MHz Public Safety Network In Houston

March 18, 2011  | 

Motorola Solutions added another public-safety win, disclosing plans to build a 700 MHz LTE network for public safety in the Houston area that would be similar to the one the company is planning for the San Francisco bay area.
