CHICAGO – July 28, 2017 – Motorola Solutions (NYSE: MSI) announced today that it has executed a definitive agreement with Airbus SE (stock exchange symbol: AIR) under which the company will acquire Plant Holdings, Inc., which holds the Airbus DS Communications business. Terms of the transaction were not disclosed.

Airbus DS Communications is a leading provider in North America of command center software for emergency call handling. Its VESTA ® suite is a comprehensive 911 call-handling solution, operating on a flexible, open software architecture. In addition to emergency call handling, it delivers text-to-911, mapping, data management and analytics, providing public safety customers with a comprehensive transition strategy from legacy systems to a standards-based, unified Next-Generation 911 system.

The acquisition of Airbus DS Communications will strengthen Motorola Solutions’ software portfolio, enabling expansion into new segments in U.S. emergency response solutions. It will create a full suite of 911 solutions, including call routing, call taking, records management and dispatch, for agencies of all sizes across segments.

“Our acquisition of Airbus DS Communications will add complementary products and services to our software portfolio, helping us meet the needs of a broader customer base and putting us at the forefront of Next-Generation 911 technology,” said Bruce Brda, executive vice president, Products & Solutions, Motorola Solutions. “We’re pleased to add these new capabilities to our Software Enterprise, created earlier this year to develop and deliver integrated software solutions that provide critical intelligence and improve operational efficiency for public safety agencies.”

Expected to be completed by the end of 2017, the acquisition is subject to customary closing conditions, including regulatory approvals.

If you can't beat 'em, join 'em?

I think Motorola is still feeling the Hytera burn.

The purchase of Airbus DS by MSI prevents JVC/Kenwood/EFJ/Zetron/everyone else from deploying the Airbus Core. It's a very good open architecture product. It also forces existing Airbus DD customers to migrate to a MSI core in the future. It's a shame. Now you only have Harris and MSI with real cores. The EFJ controller is a joke.
