CEO and Chairman of Motorola Solutions, Greg Brown reportedly stated that video surveillance plays a vital role in safeguarding businesses and improving safety in metropolitan cities. He further added that Pelco’s performance history of advancement, internationally renowned brand name, and vast clientele will further drive Motorola’s growth as well as establish a global brand value in the enterprise and public safety vertical.
