Motorola Becomes Critical Communications Provider of the 2012 Democratic National Convention
By Mandira Srivastava, TMCnet Contributor
The Democratic National Convention Committee (DNCC), a not-for-profit organization responsible for organizing series of presidential nominating conventions, is held every four years since 1832.
To enhance the convention's security and safety operations, the DNCC is taking help of Motorola’s mission-critical radios and other telecommunication products to collaborate and connect its staff and volunteers to collaborate and connect with one another instantly.
Steve Kerrigan, CEO, 2012 Democratic National Convention Committee said, “A state-of-the-art communications system is vital to helping the DNCC successfully deliver on its mission to engage more Americans than ever before in the most open and accessible convention in history. We are pleased Motorola Solutions is once again on our team to provide the radios and other equipment we need for connecting all of our staff and volunteers. Motorola Solutions is a leader in mission-critical communications, and their expertise and experience is essential for the DNCC to host a gathering of this magnitude.”
Additionally, Motorola is supplying the convention’s transportation system with radios that feature integrated GPS for vehicle tracking and route mapping from the command center. Catering many businesses and government agencies around the world, Motorola has served the communications needs of the major political parties at their national conventions since 1952.
Karen Tandy, senior vice president, Public Affairs, Motorola Solutions, said,“ We are proud to continue that tradition in Charlotte, supplying radios to the DNC and our nation’s first responders so they can share real-time information to help ensure the convention runs safely and smoothly.”
