FRANKFURT, Germany -– T-Systems and Motorola Commercial, Government and Industrial Solutions Sector (CGISS) will be cooperating on an exclusive basis in a digital radio project for German government agencies and public safety organisations. The two companies made this agreement in order to bid in the German federal government’s upcoming tender for establishing and operating a nationwide TETRA network (TErrestrial Trunked RAdio) in Germany.

T-Systems and Motorola aim to jointly support the police, fire brigade and other public safety-related agencies in the transition into the digital era by utilising the European radio standard TETRA.

Should T-Systems be awarded the contract, T-Systems, a division of Deutsche Telekom, will set up the network, link the components together into a single system, and operate it. Motorola will be T-Systems’ TETRA system provider and technology partner.
