Vertex Standard Radios Have Been Re-branded As Motorola

Big changes have come to the Vertex Standard line of professional two-way radios. It's common knowledge that Vertex Standard is owned by Motorola, but has always been operated as a stand-alone brand. Early in 2018, that all changed. Motorola created a new line of radios, informally known as their "Commercial Tier" products, which now includes a combination of several existing Motorola radios as well as several legacy Vertex Standard models that have been re-branded as Motorola.

What's Changed With Vertex Standard
The Most popular Vertex Standard models have joined the Motorola Solutions Commercial tier, and some radios have been discontinued.

What's NOT Changed With Vertex Standard
It's important to point out that customers have not been left out in the cold with this change. Of course, if you are a user of Vertex Standard radios, the warranty is still valid and will continue to be honored. Vertex Standard has been a Motorola Solutions brand for years now, so we don't expect much to change regarding warranties and support moving forward.

It's also important to point out that the physical radios that were rebranded have not changed either. For example, a Motorola VX-261 is exactly the same product as the legacy Vertex Standard VX-261.

Motorola Commercial Tier Radios
In addition to the Vertex Standard models listed above, the following current Motorola Solutions models are also a part of the Commerical tier:
