Motorola Solutions has joined the Siemens’ Solution Partner Program, becoming only the second company in Australia specialising in industrial networks to join the global programme.
The two companies have delivered a number of successful projects and implementations in Australia, including the development of complex engineering solutions for customers across the mining, energy and transportation sectors.
Minerals and Energy General Manager for Motorola Solutions Australia and New Zealand, Martin Chappell, commented: “Many of Siemens’ best-in-class communications products and services are supported by radio frequency technology, a domain area that Motorola Solutions has pioneered throughout its history.
“By applying our strengths in engineering, project design, complex systems integration and service delivery, we ensure Siemens’ products perform at the highest levels across Australian industries that rely on mission critical communications.”
Michael Freyny, Head of Digital Factory and Process Industries for Siemens Australia, said: “As digitalisation creates new opportunities across Australia, we are excited to combine our outstanding products with Motorola Solutions’ depth of application knowledge to deliver industrial network solutions for customers’ current and future needs across various sectors.
“Partnerships like this are important for Siemens because powerful communication networks create the basis for digitalisation across industries. Successfully planning, designing and implementing these solutions requires the expertise of partners such as Motorola Solutions who can provide support anytime and anywhere.”
Projects already delivered through the partnership include those based on these Siemens technologies:
- Scalance: Highly-efficient industrial data communication networks with powerful components for reliable operation in all industrial environments;
- RUGGEDCOM: Products that set new standards for quality and reliability for communication networks deployed in extreme conditions and harsh environments. The range includes switches and routers, to wireless technology, software and applications.
In 2016, Motorola Solutions and Siemens delivered a successful solution for a leading Australian mining company in South Australia which was awarded Siemens’ Project of the Year in Germany. The solution helped the company save millions in operating costs in the first year after implementation. Motorola Solutions continues to provide additional support and maintenance for the contract.
