Motorola Solutions announced it is opening a new research and development centre in Cork, Ireland.

The centre is expected to generate 200 new skilled jobs. The staff there will be focused on designing software for the company’s land mobile radio (LMR) portfolio, with plans for expansion across other technologies in the future.

Motorola Solutions says it has invested more than US$12 billion in R&D and acquisitions over the last decade. Recent acquisitions include Noggin, Silent Sentinel and IPVideo. The company’s technology ecosystem “is centred on safety and security, with LMR representing a foundational core,” stated Motorola in a press release. The company has deployed more than 13,000 LMR networks around the world.

“Decade after decade, the durability of our mission-critical LMR technology helps protect those who protect us all,” said Greg Brown, chairman and CEO, Motorola Solutions, in a statement. “Our new centre in Cork will contribute to advancing our future vision for LMR, while building upon the collective impact of our more than 20,000 employees who are innovating what’s next for our customers around the world.”

The investment is supported by the Irish Government through IDA Ireland.
