Motorola Solutions announced it has acquired Avtec, a leading U.S. provider of advanced dispatch solutions for public safety and commercial customers.
Based in South Carolina, Avtec provides voice over internet protocol (VoIP) dispatch services over land mobile radio (LMR) and broadband networks. Its services enable customers, including airlines, railroads and energy companies, to connect operations center personnel using Avtec dispatch solutions with workers in the field using two-way radios.
The acquisition adds new capabilities to Motorola Solutions’ land mobile radio and broadband platforms for both public safety and commercial customers.
