WHAT ARE ESSENTIAL SERVICES FOR MOTOTRBO RADIOS AND SYSTEMS?
On July 16, 2018, Motorola Solutions announced new enhancements to the MOTOTRBO platform with new service packages that include access to software updates, premium software features and extended hardware repair services. Your business’s security and technology needs are rapidly evolving, and we want to make sure you have a world-class experience each and every time you use your MOTOTRBO products.
There are three pieces of the Essential Services offer:
- Software Subscription Agreement
The Software Subscription Agreement ensures that you have the latest and greatest features, system improvements, and – most importantly – security vulnerability patches.
- Premium Software Features Package
The simple Premium Software Features Package includes some of Motorola Solutions' most powerful and helpful features for both infrastructure and devices. This includes features like Man-Down, Enhanced Noise Cancellation, and Text-to-Speech, which were previously only sold a la carte. Now every MOTOTRBO radio is capable of being immediately customized to the needs of the user with this package.
- Hardware Repair Agreement
The Hardware Repair Agreement extends the standard two-year warranty repair service for another three years, resulting in five years total of hardware repair on both devices and infrastructure.
Buying Motorola Solutions' Essential Services package is the fastest and easiest way for you to have peace of mind that you are fully covered from a hardware and software perspective, and that your software is up-to-date.
WHY IS MOTOTRBO SOFTWARE IMPORTANT?
MOTOTRBO connects people wherever they need instant, clear and reliable communications. It combines the best of two-way radio functionality with the latest digital technology. MOTOTRBO is a computing system that enables instant and clear communication with added intelligence.
As with any computing system, MOTOTRBO is composed of hardware and software. From ultra-light portables to extra-tough mobiles, MOTOTRBO equipment/hardware provide the best of two-way radio functionality with the latest digital technology, but their value over time is static. Three years after purchase, your physical radio is the same radio. Software, on the other hand, keeps adding value over time. With every new software release, you get improved performance, reliability, security and capabilities. Going back to the same example, three years after purchase, because of software updates, your radio is a better radio, which increases the value of your investment with every update.
MOTOTRBO PRODUCTS INCLUDED
Not all MOTOTRBO radios are affected by this new service offering. Below is a list of equipment in the MOTOTRBO portfolio that are included in Essential Services: SL 7000e Series, XPR 7000e Series, XPR 5000e Series, XPR 3000 Series, XPR 2500 Series, and all current MOTOTRBO repeaters.
These new service packages bring key benefits to your MOTOTRBO platform:

This increases the value of your investment with every update.
