What is MOTOTRBO by Motorola?

MOTOTRBO, pronounced MOTO-TURBO, is a Motorola digital radio format designed for businesses, industrial and commercial use.  Due to its versatility, power, and advanced digital technology, it is leading the way in two-way radio functionality.

This digital communications product platform is designed after, as well as compatible with, the European 2-slot DMR and relies on Time Division Multiple Access (TDMA) in order to accommodate two concurrent users. One 12.5 kHz channel can carry two concurrent and neutral dialogues, as well as individual voice and data paths equivalent to 6.25 kHz. It’s worth noting that the bandwidth of DMR surpasses the greatest UHF 6.25 kHz channel centers.

According to John Jaderholm, a member of the Motorola System Solutions Team, “It’s designed for the communication needs of professional and commercial users. People in the utility, manufacturing, hospitality, healthcare, municipality, transportation, construction, and in the educational markets,” just to name a few. 

Over the last few years, MOTOBRO has been highly successful and gives users a greater deal of control over their communication. It allows users to operate within different talkgroups, use wide-area operation through IP connection, and offers talkpaths comparable to trunking.
