Motorola Solutions Extends TETRA Digital Radio System to Georgian Rescue Forces
- Expansion of existing Motorola Solutions TETRA system for ministry of interior in Georgia and additional Emergency Management Service users.
- Rescue forces will benefit from Motorola Solutions’ mission-critical hardware, software and service solutions.
TBILISI, Georgia – Nov. 12, 2018 – Motorola Solutions has signed a two-year contract with the Emergency Management Service of Georgia to expand the country’s TETRA digital radio communications network. The highly resilient and secure network, which has been used by the Georgian police authorities nationwide for over 10 years, will be opened to other emergency services such as firefighters and rescue workers.
Following recent fires and an increasing number of natural disasters in Georgia, the need for a highly available and reliable communication system for all rescue workers and public safety organizations had become critical.
“Our TETRA radio solutions will offer the Emergency Management Service of Georgia to communicate with other public safety organizations in case of an emergency and help them conduct safer missions, ultimately saving lives,” said Michael Kaae, vice president for Nordics, Eastern Europe & Russia at Motorola Solutions.
Motorola Solutions will also be responsible for network maintenance and training of Georgian rescue forces.
