Illinois School District Improves Situational Awareness And Shortens Response Time
Located in Mundelein, Illinois, in the northwestern suburb outside Chicago, Fremont School District 79 (SD 79) is composed of three schools: elementary, intermediate and middle. The district enrolls over 2,200 students in kindergarten through eighth grade, covers a 36-square-mile area, and draws from seven neighboring communities.
Fremont SD 79 is known for its spirit of continuous quality improvement, with open, transparent communication with the public about school performance. The priority is to create a safe learning environment to further its mission of “preparing today’s child for tomorrow’s world.”
As Mike Tanner, their Director of Business Services points out, in the aftermath of an alarming number of incidents of school violence around the nation, their district placed even greater emphasis on tightening campus security and creating a culture of increased safety for students and school personnel.
A variety of factors prompted the district to adopt a more robust and reliable solution than incumbent push-to-talk cellular. They discovered that the combination of the MOTOTRBO digital two-way radio system and Teldio telephone interconnect application would provide real-time communications – and a direct connection to 9-1-1 dispatchers – to increase school safety.
Rosen Hotels & Resorts Seamlessly Connects Staff, Boosts Security Response And Improves Productivity

To meet this challenge, Rosen Hotels decided to upgrade their existing radios to a MOTOTRBO system for improved coverage and audio clarity. Their centralized guest relations team also leverages DAPage to dispatch work order tickets and WAVE for Voice Dispatch. This unified Team Communications solution enables every department to instantly communicate from anywhere to meet guest expectations.

Major North American Processing Plant Excels Under Daily Pressure
Aux Sable is one of the largest natural gas liquid (NGL) extraction and fractionation facilities in North America. A major player in the midstream gas processing business, Aux Sable operates facilities and pipelines in some of the most active shale positions on the continent, including Alberta, Canada, and North Dakota.
For over 15 years, Aux Sable has been extracting and fractionating natural gas at its 70-acre facility in Channahon, Illinois, at the terminus of the Alliance Pipeline. This operation processes 2.1 billion cubic feet per day of natural gas and can produce approximately 107,000 barrels per day of NGL products – including ethane, propane, butanes and pentanes.
Natural gas processing is a complex operation that involves large volumes of natural gas and NGLs transported in pipelines, process equipment and storage vessels. Safety is imperative for all plant employees, compliance with regulations and the well-being of the local community.
As Aux Sable expanded its Illinois facility to increase NGL production, it wanted to add to and enhance its MOTOTRBO digital radio system not only for regular employees, but for teams of outside contractors. MOTOTRBO’s platform offered a safe and productive way to meet their changing communication requirements.
Gulf Coast Logistics Company Shifts Into High Gear With Digital Communications
The Kearney Companies, Inc. (KCO) is one of the largest third-party logistics (3PL) providers on the Gulf Coast. Operating from the Port of New Orleans on the Mississippi River, the family-owned company has a rich history of warehousing and 3PL services that spans four generations.
Today, KCO oversees more than 700,000 square feet of rail-served warehouse capacity and over 45 acres of yard capacity in the New Orleans region. From rolled paper to steel products to cotton for export, KCO transports, warehouses and distributes millions of tons of international cargo.
“Every day we move cargo from the Port of New Orleans to eight different facilities,” says David Kearney, President. “As our truck drivers (draymen) transport containers, we need constant communication between our dispatch office, drivers and warehouse locations for large-scale efficiency.”
With the growth in export and import container business through the Port of New Orleans and an increase in drivers that travel outside New Orleans, KCO knew it had to expand radio communications to improve efficiency and customer service. The company quickly embraced the operations-critical benefits of Motorola’s digital technology with MOTOTRBO radios and MOTOTRBO Connect Plus commercial network.
