Written by: Laurence Doe | Published:

A new version of Motorola Solutions' firmware for the SLR 5500 repeater – version R20.60.08 – has been released to fix both the RAS (restricted access to system) and battery charging problem that was found in the last release.

The MOTOTRBO SLR 5500 Series repeater delivers two-way radio service with digital technology to integrate voice and data, offering advanced but easy to use features, engineered with low power consumption for a low cost of ownership.

In a statement to Land Mobile, a Motorola Solutions spokesperson said: "The most recent MOTOTRBO systems software release has been shared with our customers via Motorola-Online and includes updates for the SLR5000. As we monitor our solutions on a regular basis we have seen that under certain circumstances the battery charging and RAS may not perform optimally and the new software release will improve this performance.

"Motorola Solutions’ Berlin-based repair and support center closely monitors performance trends and provides repair and replacement services to customers around the world, and shares their findings with our engineers and designers so that our products can be made even more resilient.

"Motorola Solutions continually monitors the performance of its products to ensure that they are meeting or exceeding our customers’ expectations, and take proactive steps when necessary to ensure we deliver on our commitment to continuous product improvement.

"Our products are designed and tested to withstand the rigors of the harshest types of business- and mission-critical use. As part of the product lifecycle we regularly provide customers with software updates for our solutions."

The repeater supports Digital Conventional, IP Site Connect, Capacity Plus, Linked Capacity Plus, Connect Plus, mixed mode digital/analogue and also conventional analogue and MPT 1327 systems. Motorola Solutions improved the power efficiency of its repeaters with the release of the SLR 5500 as it consumes 40 per cent less power than the previous model in standby mode and 15 per cent less power in operational mode.
