I was working on a job about 7 years ago where Motorola had hired us to install some CCTV equipment at a city owned skate park in South Florida. Motorola was in bed with Sony for years trying to break into the CCTV market thinking that they could leverage existing communication contracts and relationships with Public Safety, City and Transportation. The Motorola communications sales team knew nothing about CCTV and sold equipment off a list of state contract approved SKUs not really knowing how the parts and pieces worked together. That strategy failed miserably.
Motorola also sold off their Canopy line of wireless PTP and PTMP microwave network radios including the fledgling Canopy engineering team to Cambium. Cambium then resurrected the neglected Canopy radio line dumping a ton of R&D money into it. By doing so they created an excellent portfolio of carrier class network radio products that still exhibits traces of the original Motorola DNA.
