Motorola Solutions has been selected as a supplier in one of the latest tenders of the Norwegian Directorate for Emergency Communication (DNK) to deliver Terrestrial Trunked Radios (TETRA) digital radio terminals to the Fire Agencies in Norway for the nationwide mission critical network Nødnett for the phases 1 and 2 of the project.
The agreement with Motorola includes the delivery of five radio models totalling approximately 2,000 units for the Norwegian Fire Service. The Motorola radio solutions were the first choice for the Fire users because of their superior voice quality and user friendliness, the company said.
In August 2012, DNK signed framework agreements with three vendors to be part in the terminal tenders for the public safety services on the nationwide mission critical network, which entitle the vendors to tender in the successive phases during the roll out of the nationwide network. The latest decision follows a tender process where fire users have tested the devices of all vendors in real life.
DNK and users have chosen the new MTP3000 series (pictured) including the MTP3200 and MTP3250, the MTP850S and the MTP850 Ex TETRA handheld digital radios, as well as the MTM5400 vehicle mobile radios.
Motorola Solutions Norway is also the prime contractor for Norwegian nationwide TETRA Nødnett project including all managed services for the roll out and implementation of the system.
Tom Quirke, vice president and general manager, Global TETRA Organization, Motorola Solutions, said: ‘To deliver reliable communications solutions for Norway´s public safety organizations is a continuous top priority for us within Motorola and we are very delighted that the Norwegian Fire Service has chosen our TETRA radio devices to support them in their mission critical communications.’
