Singapore Technologies Electronics Limited (ST Electronics) and Motorola Solutions (NYSE: MSI) will today sign a Memorandum of Understanding to co-create innovative technologies for advanced secured communications in public safety, national security and enterprise sectors.

ST Electronics brings to the partnership extensive experience in the design and implementation of large-scale, mission-critical solutions, as well as cutting-edge, cyber security expertise. Motorola Solutions has more than 80 years of global experience and deep domain expertise in mobilising mission-critical intelligence for the public safety and enterprise markets.

The primary focus of the partnership is to help government and enterprise organisations reach new levels of security and productivity through smarter and more secure technologies. This can range from increasing situational awareness and efficiency among first responders in the field, to providing essential information to enable enterprises to make speedy and accurate business-critical decisions.

The collaboration will accelerate the development of specialised technologies for high-security, mission-critical broadband, cyber-security solutions and purpose-built applications, all of which will be made commercially available in each company’s solution portfolio.

In particular, the companies plan to collaborate on key innovation areas including:

  • Applications utilising Motorola Solutions’ Convergence Suite environment of WAVE interoperability and Intelligent Middleware solutions, which seamlessly link critical communications users across networks, regardless of the type of device they carry.
  • Security solutions to protect the integrity of sensitive communications, shield operational intelligence and defend against cyber threats.
  • Mission-critical, public safety long-term evolution (LTE) solutions supporting both rapidly deployable solutions and large-scale implementations.

"This partnership lays an important foundation for both organisations to capitalise on our joined strength to benefit our customers.

"With shared global expertise and business dynamism, this partnership will create new technological frontiers with innovative solutions for the government and private sectors in the realms of cyber security and public safety," said Lee Fook Sun, president of ST Electronics.

"Together we will accelerate innovation and deliver advanced capabilities for government and enterprise organisations.

"By transforming operations and securely making available data both mobile and actionable, we will protect the security and stability of our cities and enable communities to thrive," said Eduardo Conrado, executive vice president, Strategy and Innovation Office, Motorola Solutions.
