This week, Motorola launched MOTOTRBO Nitro, an enterprise voice and private broadband data managed service that the company says offers customers better indoor coverage for voice and data, capable of delivering twice the capacity and up to four times the range compared to Wi-Fi.
The private broadband land mobile radio (LMR) solution uses CBRS spectrum to provide customized private networks that deliver both voice and broadband. It combines Motorola’s MOTOTRBO push-to-talk functionality for business-critical voice communications with a private LTE network for data.
“Motorola Solutions’ Nitro offer provides a distinct departure from classical approaches toward private mobile radio deployments,” Ken Rehbehn, principal analyst of critical communications at IHS Markit Technology, said in a news release. “The approach should deliver increased voice and data functionality with a compelling total cost of ownership.”
