Motorola has stepped into the niche business-to-business digital communications market with the launch of Zeon Digital Network.
It will be sold through Motorola’s conventional radio dealers. However Wiliam Waterworth, general manager, Zeon Digital said "we will be looking at other channel sources to sell our products through later on."
The $50 million dollar, two way radio communication network, is a digital Push-To-Talk (PTT) dispatch services, that includes individual and telephone voice calls, Short Data Service (SDS) messaging and mobile data applications via a digital network.
Zeon Digital will also provide encryption services to protect both voice and data communications. The network builds on Motorola’s Internet Protocol (IP) platforms and is aimed at organisations with three units to as many as 10,000 units. It will also be available for commercial use in April in greater Melbourne, May in greater Sydney with Brisbane due for rollout later in the year.
The network will launch with specialised two-way radio terminals including the MTP850 and the MTM700. Handsets start at $349.00 on a 36 month plan.
