INTERVIEW: Motorola Solutions CTO Paul Steinberg explains how data and enhanced communications can make cities safer – even if they re not smart just yet
As CTO of Motorola Solutions MSI , Paul Steinberg says he has three broad remits.
This might seem like a very narrow focus but it s a market in which the present day Motorola senses a great opportunity as emergency services update their infrastructure to improve service and cut cost.
In the UK, MSI is working with EE to help deliver the £1 billion Emergency Services Network ESN – a 4G platform that will allow for data-enabled services alongside critical communications – and save the government £1 million a day
These upgrades will power what MSI sees as the big trend in public safety: the coupling of communications with data analytics, a vision it recently outlined at Critical Communications World CCW in Amsterdam.
Other situations could give a paramedic of firefighter additional information, possibly through wearable technology.
