• Instant private and secure communication: Employees can communicate over a secure Private Communications System that provides entire system coverage.
  • Worker safety: Preempt potential hazards with one-to-one or one-to-many calling; Motorola radios include emergency call features to alert a safety or security team.
  • Aging workforce: MOTOTRBO provides a communications platform that will allow the Utility to be more efficient and productive through the use of applications and IP-addressable devices.
  • Faster response: Direct communication from dispatch staff to infield teams can mean faster response times and better customer service.
  • Enhanced productivity: While many Utilities may already subscribe to landline service as their primary solution, a wireless infrastructure can be an inexpensive backup system in case of landline failure. Two-way radios provide “on-the-move” communications that landline service can’t.
  • HazLoc operations: Approved batteries allow radios to be used in hazardous locations (HazLoc) where flammable vapors, combustible dust and other explosive environments exist.

Whether communicating within a power plant, dispatching workers due to a power outage, or lineworkers communicating to each other, two-way radio systems provides efficiency across the operations and improves worker safety. Knowing where your personnel are and dispatching the closest one to where you need them, improves response and customer service. Radios, especially with the man down or lone worker application, provides an instant notification that a worker may be hurt.

Motorola two-way radios and the MOTOTRBO digital two-way radio system – together with software from our Application Partners – combines to keep facility management and workers as well as workers
in the field connected in realtime to ensure the safety and security of employees and to drive operational efficiency throughout plant and field operations.


Utilities are mandated by law to provide safe and reliable electric, gas and water services to customers within their service areas. To do so, Utilities plan, design, build, operate and maintain communications networks and systems to direct the workforce, control plants and equipment, monitor operations, secure properties and measure usage so that they can avoid major service outages and proactively manage the energy needs of their customers.

Motorola communications systems, along with a wide array of accessories, provides a host of competitive advantages for Utilities:​​
