Lead and Never Follow: A Customer Centric Company Culture Is Redefining How Dallas Communicates!

HCI Acquires Blair Communications, Inc.

Houston, Texas. HCI, a wireless communications integrator of voice, video and data solutions, announces its acquisition of Dallas based, Blair Communications Inc. (“Blair”). HCI will obtain Blair’s assets and the merged business will operate under the HCI brand. The acquisition is effective February 15, 2019.

Blair Communications is an Authorized Dealer for Motorola, Vertex Standard, Kenwood, and other electronic products that was created in 1976 by Janet Blair who saw the need for Two-Way radio communications at a golf tournament to improve their productivity. In 1986 Janet sold Blair Communications to Joseph Blair and subsequently incorporated in the state of Texas in 1990.

“Expansion into the Dallas-Fort Worth area is another milestone in our development strategy to better serve our growing customer base” said Keir Johnson, President and CEO of HCI. “This will further expand the technical and sales resources at the disposal of both branches, and enhance the training and development for the existing team in Dallas”

Mr. Johnson will work with his management team through the transition to a single company. The headquarters will remain in Houston, Texas. HCI’s own Max Williams will oversee the day to day integration of Blair into the HCI family and culture as the General Manager in Dallas.

MOTOTRBO Nitro

Put Wi-Fi Outages in The Rear-View Mirror With CBRS

No matter the size of your business or the type of environment you work in, chances are Wi-Fi has become a valuable tool for your business-critical operations. But as the number of devices, applications and users continues to grow along with your business, the weaknesses and limitations of your Wi-Fi network continues to become more exposed. Now, enterprises of all kinds can take advantage of better, more secure and more predictable communications by deploying MOTOTRBO Nitro, thanks to Motorola Solutions’ decades of experience delivering voice, data, and edge computing solutions. Where it’s impractical—or just too expensive—to install ethernet or fiber, Nitro powered by CBRS can provide the secure backhaul that increasing voice and data pressures demand. With Nitro, enterprises can bring secure push-to-talk to the smart devices their team is already using, connect radio systems together to support enhanced unified team communications, and freely use the device that suits each worker best, from virtually any location.

Land Mobile Radio Systems

Addressing the New Demands of Software-Centric Land Mobile Radio Systems

Today, 74% of all organizations use digital land mobile radio systems. So, we sought to better understand how system managers are evolving their methodologies and resource deployment to maintain and support modern, software-centric systems.

The results from our new Motorola Solutions 2018 LMR System Management Benchmark Survey are out and the findings are striking. LMR system managers still give more support to traditional system management measures than they do to software-centric ones. However, those who focus more on software-centric activities such as network monitoring experience fewer outages.
