Motorola Solutions Launches Cloud Service for Communications

Zacks Equity Research
·3 min read

Motorola Solutions, Inc. MSI has unveiled CirrusCentral Core, a cloud-based secondary core for ASTRO 25 P25 land mobile radio systems. Dubbed the next-generation of mission-critical radio technology, CirrusCentral Core enables system managers to access their secondary core virtually.

CirrusCentral Core is operated with CirrusCentral Management cloud-based management software for ASTRO 25 systems. The new cloud service is regularly updated with the latest communication software. It also eliminates the need for public safety agencies to maintain a physical backup core-site.

In case a master site is impacted by a storm, the system automatically reroutes radio calls to the cloud core for uninterrupted communications. CirrusCentral Management provides system administrators with a simple web-based user interface to monitor a radio network that spans a long distance.

CirrusCentral Management is updated with new features that enhance system monitoring. It includes provisioning capability to search for radios, commands that perform remote diagnostics. It has anomaly detection to identify real-time system irregularities and send alerts to managers. While CirrusCentral Management is currently available, CirrusCentral Core is expected to hit the market in December this year.

Motorola holds a leading position in mission-critical communications and analytics. The Chicago, IL-based company is focused on becoming a frontrunner in the next-generation video security solutions market. Its competitive advantage along with an attractive product portfolio for a large addressable market bodes well. It expects to see strong demand across video security and services, land mobile radio products and related software.

The stock has added 7.4% in the past six months compared with 56.1% growth of the industry. The company has a long-term (three to five years) earnings growth expectation of 9% compared with the industry’s 15.2%.

Motorola carries a Zacks Rank #2 (Buy), at present.

Some other top-ranked stocks in the broader industry are Turtle Beach Corporation HEAR, Vocera Communications, Inc. VCRA and Acacia Communications, Inc. ACIA, each carrying a Zacks Rank #2. You can see the complete list of today’s Zacks #1 Rank (Strong Buy) stocks here.

Biggest Tech Breakthrough in a Generation

Be among the early investors in the new type of device that experts say could impact society as much as the discovery of electricity. Current technology will soon be outdated and replaced by these new devices. In the process, it’s expected to create 22 million jobs and generate $12.3 trillion in activity.

A select few stocks could skyrocket the most as rollout accelerates for this new tech. Early investors could see gains similar to buying Microsoft in the 1990s. Zacks’ just-released special report reveals 8 stocks to watch. The report is only available for a limited time.
