Motorola Solutions launches radio built for firefighters

Fire houseDSC086482019 EditMotorola Solutions has launched the APX NEXT XE, its next-generation project 25 (P25) broadband radio, specifically designed for firefighters

It combines mission-critical voice communications with data applications that combine radio voice control, messaging, mapping and vital new collaboration applications that can help improve the situational awareness of those in the field, according to Motorola Solutions’ news release.

APX NEXT XE is offered with ViQi Voice Control, which allows users to control their radio via simple and intuitive voice commands.

It allows fire personnel to perform actions such as changing the radio channel, checking the status of the battery, adjusting the volume of the radio, and more with one touch of the dedicated ViQi button so that their attention remains to the task at hand. ViQi Voice Control is designed to work in the loud environments found on the fireplace, with high dynamic range microphones that improve intelligence and speech clarity.

The radio maintains the push-to-talk functionality and introduces new performance enhancements, such as a gloves-friendly touchscreen. The radio has a robust exterior and is designed to withstand extreme environments, from high heat to water exposure and submersion, which the firefighter faces in the field.
