Motorola Solutions has claimed four awards at Australia’s peak international design awards, Good Design Australia.

The company earned the awards for its next generation of mission critical solutions in video and voice communications.

Two of the awards went to Motorola Solutions’ APX NEXT, purpose built Smart Radio designed for emergency services and first responders that will be launched in Australia and New Zealand in late 2020.

Further cementing Motorola Solutions’ reputation as a mission critical communications leader, another award went to the WM500 WIRELESS PoC REMOTE SPEAKER MICROPHONE, which collaborates with a smartphone to provide push-to-talk (PTT) communication over cellular.

Motorola Solutions rounded out its Good Design Award wins with a win for the H5M Outdoor Dome camera. The camera provides a budget-conscious video surveillance installation for tough environmental conditions while offering advanced video analytics through Artificial Intelligence (AI) technology for faster response times and simple installation.

Vice president for Motorola Solutions Australia and New Zealand, Con Balaskas, said the four awards collectively represented the company’s strengths in mission critical communications as well as its rapidly expanding capabilities in video security.

“Winning four Good Design Awards is certainly an honour. Even more importantly, it provides validation that our approach to innovation is helping to deliver valuable new technologies for enterprise and public safety organisations,” Balaskas said.

“Motorola Solutions will continue to continue to direct its research and development investments towards developing the best voice communication, video and software solutions for industry,” he said.

The 2020 Good Design Awards attracted a record number of submissions with an astonishing 835 design projects evaluated in this year’s international design awards.

The annual Good Design Awards is Australia’s oldest and most prestigious international Awards for design and innovation with a proud history dating back to 1958. The Awards celebrate the best new products and services on the Australian market, excellence in architectural design, engineering, fashion, digital and communication design, design strategy, social impact design and young designers.

Dr. Brandon Gien, CEO of Good Design Australia said: “Receiving a Good Design Award is a significant achievement given the very high calibre and record number of entries received in 2020.”
