Motorola brings TETRA pagers to Bavaria

The Ministry of the Interior of the German state of Bavaria has agreed a deal to acquire 55,000 ADVISOR TPG2200 TETRA two-way radio pagers from Motorola Solutions to support the state’s emergency services.

According to Motorola the TPG2200 pagers will alert emergency services via Germany’s nationwide TETRA digital radio network and the pagers are rugged for all conditions with a bright, two-inch colour display. The device is also IP54 rated for dust and water protection with a battery life of up to 48 hours.

The scope of the framework agreement includes a TETRA Integrated Terminal Management (iTM) solution that enables emergency services to manage software upgrades remotely.

Axel Kukuk, regional sales lead for Germany at Motorola Solutions, said: ““Fire, ambulance and rescue organisations rely on a network of trained volunteers to respond to emergencies. Those volunteers need reliable and robust technology to raise the alert.

“The project marks another major milestone for Motorola Solutions’ TETRA pager deliveries for Bavaria, as the company has already signed contracts with the state’s Ministry of Interior for 80,000 TETRA pagers that are used by its fire brigades and ambulance service.”

The agreement marks a second major European deal this month for Motorola Solutions having acquired Italian-based ruggedized video security solutions Videotec last week.
