Motorola, Inc. (NYSE: MOT), world leader in the development and deployment of TETRA communication solutions, today announced that it has won the terminal tender for delivering digital public safety radio communications in Berlin.

The Federal State of Berlin has confirmed the order of 1000 TETRA digital two-way radios - including accessories. Around 750 digital two-way radios will be distributed to the police, responsible for the “Berlin Mitte” district, and approximately 250 devices will be used by fire departments. A range of services, such as maintenance and training is also included in the order.

“We are delighted that the Federal State of Berlin as well as over 45 customers in the private sector throughout Germany have selected our TETRA systems,” said Alexander Burghardt, MSSI vice president, Central Europe & Russia, EMS, Motorola. “We hope that this success is a platform for us to work with other Federal States throughout the country.”

The compact, lightweight MTP850 handheld radio device and the CM5000 mobile radio unit have been selected by authorities. Both devices ensure safe and reliable voice and data communications in the most difficult environments. They are equipped with a large graphic color display and an integrated WAP browser for secure access to databases. A GPS receiver automatically shows the location of task forces guaranteeing optimum manpower planning.

The CM5000 is equipped with Direct Mode Operation Gateway and repeater functionality and expands the digital radio network’s reach to extend the application in locations with a weak signal. In addition, the CM5000 offers a wide range of installation options and can easily be integrated into vehicles, motocycles and control points of any kind. A special feature is an option to use migration solutions, which support the parallel operation of two analog and two digital TETRA mobile radio devices.

Motorola won the tender process against several other competitors. “After a technical assessment of all the offers, extensive tests of the devices and a precise cost analysis, we decided to choose Motorola,” explained Dr. Charlotta Flodell, project manager for Digital Radio BOS Berlin. “Motorola has a long tradition in wireless technology and is one leading provider of TETRA digital two-way radio solutions. We are confident that Motorola’s TETRA terminals will fulfill the requirements of our public safety task forces.”

The services negotiated in the contract include hands-on training sessions run by Motorola for future users of the new TETRA devices. The company will also be responsible for repair and maintenance of the products. Motorola will cooperate with its Berlin-based public safety distributor Niemann Elektronik to assist with services.

Motorola offers an extensive portfolio of end terminals and accessories to official authorities and organizations entrusted with public safety tasks. Motorola also has reliable local presence at its disposal with its BOS partner program. There will be at least one BOS partner available to customers for questions regarding sales, service and technical implementation in each federal state. Motorola has shipped recently its 1millionth TETRA terminal which marks a major milestone and highlights Motorola’s leadership in this market.
