For One-Of-A-Kind Interoperability
Motorola APX™ 7500 Multi-Band Mobile Radios
Designed for today.
Engineered for the future.
APX Mobile: Technology driven by first-responder challenges
When every second counts, first responders must be able to communicate
with one another – no matter what agencies are involved in mission
critical operations. Despite years of heightened attention to security and
preparedness, many communities are looking for the right technology to
achieve interoperability and be capable of mounting a swift and effective
joint response.
With the APX 7500, organizations can purchase one radio for instant multi-band
communication – and streamline the expense of maintaining, installing, and
operating multiple mobile radios. The APX 7500 mobile radio operates in 700/800
MHz and VHF and will be available in other bands as they become available.
The APX 7500 exemplifies Motorola’s commitment to meet the voice and data
demands of today’s first responders in mission critical environments – to enable
anywhere, anyplace, anytime connectivity.
Motorola is the leader in providing mission critical solutions that enable
agencies to achieve interoperability goals, whether customers are upgrading
an existing system or designing a new system from the ground up.
Top Mission Critical Communication Challenges –
and how APX answers the call
Interoperability On Demand
Agencies from different jurisdictions often operate
on different frequency bands – requiring agencies
to install and maintain two radios in order to
communicate with one another.
Future Ready Investment
Agencies want to protect current investments in
mission critical radios and ensure that new radio
purchases can be updated to utilize the latest
advances in technology.
The APX solution: The APX 7500 multi-band radio
can operate on both 700/800 MHz and VHF
frequencies* – to enable instant, interoperable
communications for improved coordination,
response, and first responder safety.
The APX solution: The APX 7500 is backwards
and forwards compatible – it works on all existing
ASTRO® 25 systems and will also work as
customers migrate to advance technology
such as TDMA. The radios have an expansion
slot that makes adding future data applications,
such as Bluetooth®, possible without additional
hardware updates.
Ease of Installation
The area inside vehicles offers limited installation
space and radios can be difficult to access.
The APX solution: The APX mobiles are designed
to fit into the existing install space for ease of use,
installation and removal. The mid-power mobile,
allows for reuse of mounting holes and cables. The
new high power trunion design provides secure
engagement and ease of installation allowing the
radio to be removed without removing the cables.
*Additional bands will be available.
Advanced Technology Provides an Answer
FDMA (Frequency Division Multiple Access) is a proven technology that is widely
used today in radio systems and is part of Project 25 Phase 1. FDMA carries one
call per channel. TDMA (Time Division Multiple Access) will be part of P25 Phase
2 requirements and it provides double the voice capacity. Customers can add
more users to their system or more data services without the need for additional
frequencies or infrastructure.
The APX radios support both P25 Phase 1 and Phase 2 technologies seamlessly.
Using Motorola’s unique Dynamic Dual Mode (DDM) capability, the radios
dynamically switch between FDMA and TDMA without the user having to
change channels. This provides complete interoperability and flexibility to
communicate with existing and future networks.
APX fully compatible with the Motorola ASTRO 25 Network
APX 7500 multi-band radios were designed to work with ASTRO 25, Project
25 standards-based communications network. With integrated voice and data
capabilities, the ASTRO 25 network offers improved communications between
multiple agencies, as well as neighboring communities, from everyday operations
to disaster response.
“Providing cross-discipline interoperability and
increased functionality, APX is a cutting-edge
tool for communications.”

North Carolina Criminal Justice Information Network

2-In-1 Radio
APX 7500 operates in 700/800 MHz & VHF and
acts as two radios in one. Motorola has reduced
the amount of equipment service shops must
install and maintain.
The APX mobile radio was designed to maintain
the same mounting foot prints as the XTL. The high
power trunion was completely redesigned for ease of
installation, providing installation guides and rails, better engagement into the tray and better handle grip.
Advanced Emergency Functionality
Motorola offers several Advanced Emergency features to assist in keeping mission critical users safe.
When an emergency call is initiated; other users in
a talk group will hear an alert and see the ID in their
display. The Emergency Keep Alive feature ensures
your emergency call is not dropped even if the radio
power switches OFF. The Emergency with Voice to
Follow feature allows communication without pressing the PTT button if needed.
APX is backwards and forwards compatible with
Motorola SmartNet®, SmartZone® and ASTRO 25
systems and offers future expandability for
developing technologies.
APX 7500 supports P25 Phase 1 and is upgradeable
to support P25 Phase 2 to offer better spectrum
utilization and double voice capacity using existing
Data Capability
