digital technology represents a revolution in two-way radio
communications. It delivers consistent voice quality throughout your
coverage area, enhanced signalling and control, greater spectral
efficiency and improved secure communications.
of integrated voice and data.
integrated voice and data communications. You can maximize your
investment by adding data to your existing voice network to implement
database inquiry and retrieval. And as your needs change, the system can
be reconfigured to allow dedicated data on a separate channel. These
include full Computer-Aided Dispatch and 911 incident reporting as well
as mobile work ticket applications.
You can also have the
confidence of knowing that narrowband digital technology is available
today on ASTRO. And because ASTRO™ allows you to select from multiple
bandwidths in current analog technology, it preserves your current
investment. As you move to digital technology, you can continue to
communicate with analog users.
ASTRO™ radios are
designed for maximum interoperability - not only with Motorola systems
but with other radios that use the Project 25 Common Air Interface. Yet
with ASTRO™, Motorola did more than meet Project 25 standards. They went
beyond them. Not only do ASTRO™ radios include Project 25 interoperable
voice features, but also other advanced capabilities such as MDC-1200
analog signalling. This ensures users can continue to take advantage of
such familiar communications feaures as push-to-talk identifications,
selective call and emergency alarm, selective radio inhibit,
over-the-air rekeying, message update and telephone interconnect.
- Software Intensive Design
ASTRO™ is leading-edge
technology with built-in software upgrade capabilities to give you a
flexible, cost-effective migration path to the digital narrowband
systems of the future.
This is another way that
Motorola protects the value of your investment. Many ASTRO™ system
components - including mobiles, portables and stations - carry a "flash"
memory chip to store the radio's personality and features. FLASHport®
lets you "flash" new software when your system requirements change. Add
enhancements quickly and easily on-site - or modify radios and system
infrastructure by loading new software.
