Motorola MTP3500/MTP3550

Radios enhanced for public safety

Features like End-to-end encryption, Man Down sensor and vibrator add extra safety to the already high performance and reliability. The two terminals are identical except for the keypad, which is limited on the 3500.

About Motorola MTP3500/MTP3550

Both MTP3500 and MTP3550 are prepared for end-to-end encryption (E2EE) that secures all transmissions from start to finish.

They are also equipped with Man Down, which can be crucial for lone workers. This because the Man Down sensor automatically initiates emergency calls when the radio remains motionless for a pre-defined period and/or tilted beyond a pre-set angle.


The two terminals also have Bluetooth 2.1 built-in, which provides a safer and more capable wireless connection. It allows the connection of wireless headsets, barcode scanners, heart rate monitors, etc.

Bluetooth can also be set as always visible, making it useful for indoor positioning. By placing Bluetooth beacons in strategic locations in a building a user’s movements can be monitored.

Thanks to the built-in Bluetooth the radios can also be controlled remotely from a smartphone. Together with the vibrator MTP3500 and MTP3550 allows users to communicate discreetly in covert situations.

Satellite positioning

Since the latest version of the MTP3000-series these models can be fitted with optional positioning service, meaning either GPS, Beidou or GLONASS.

Motorola MTP3000 series


The series is designed to provide optimum radio performance in all types of environments. The best-in-class receiver sensitivity and 1.8W output power maximizes reception and range. Together with two powerful speakers (2Wrms) and dynamic audio optimization the terminals deliver first class audibility, regardless of surroundings.

With the last upgrade the five radios also support a wider spectrum and can now be used in both the 350-470MHz and the 800MHz band. They can also be equipped with RFID which can used for indoor positioning or inventory.


All models in the series are now also ingress protected according to IP65, IP66 and IP67. This means they can be submerged in water for prolonged periods as well as blasted with high-pressure water.

The two ports on the terminals are designed for improved durability, conductivity and resistance against corrosion. The bottom connector is indented for better protection against external damage and is also equipped with a self-cleaning function resistant to dust and dirt.

The devices meet or surpass the requirements of all categories in the MIL-STD. They also meet the requirements in Motorola own quality assurance program ALT™, which simulates five years of hard use. In summary, the MTP3000 series delivers reliable communications as well as lower life cycle cost (LCC).


Motorola Solutions has returned to separate volume and channel knobs on the MTP3000 series. This to increase recognition for experienced two-way radio users and thereby facilitating a smoother transition to TETRA.

The wider screen can display more characters and is easy to read in both bad lighting and direct sunlight. The series combines the best and most fundamental functionality from conventional two-way radios with the latest digital technology to create the most intuitive and uncomplicated terminal possible.


By connecting a Motorola certified accessory the radios benefits can be even further increased. That is true also for third-party accessories that are tested and approved together with the radio.

The side connector features a quick release designed to enable one-hand operation, without sacrificing the connector’s reliability. The connector is also shared with other product across other series which guarantees an extensive range of accessories.
