Motorola Solutions has acquired Futurecom Systems Group, a leading provider of radio coverage extension solutions for public safety agencies, headquartered in Ontario, Canada.
Futurecom designs and manufactures fixed and portable in-vehicle radio frequency (RF) repeaters and extenders exclusively for Motorola Solutions. These complementary products are extremely important to public safety agencies, serving as communications “hotspots” to extend and enhance land mobile radio coverage in vast, remote areas without nearby radio towers.
“Radio communications are reliable and vital to professionals in the field, and more than 800 agencies worldwide rely on Futurecom products to stay reliably connected in the work environment,” explains Scott Mottonen, senior vice president of Products, Motorola Solutions.
“Futurecom is an important part of our history and our future, and together we will continue to innovate mission-critical communications for the public safety agencies that rely on our solutions to keep their professionals and the public safe.”
For more than 30 years, Motorola Solutions and Futurecom have collaborated on RF repeaters and extenders that are integrated with Motorola Solutions’ radio networks and devices. These solutions help ensure that front-line professionals, even in remote locations, maintain critical communications and advanced features, such as encryption and data services, to do their jobs more securely.
“We couldn’t be more excited to join Motorola Solutions, a company with which we have collaborated and worked side by side for many years,” says Paul Halinaty, president and CEO of Futurecom.
“We share a deep passion for designing and delivering solutions that help ensure professionals have radio coverage when and where they need it.”
