Public Safety Users Choose Motorola TETRA Radios

Motorola has today announced contracts for more than 20.000 TETRA radios for the public safety network in The Netherlands. The radios will be used on C2000, the Dutch countrywide encrypted Public Safety Network.

The main reason for this success is that Motorola offered its complete range of TETRA radios to the Dutch market through three key distributors. After the successful introduction and operational use of the MTP700 TETRA radio by different C2000 regions, Guido Dukker, Project leader C2000 of the Amsterdam Fire Brigade, stated." The MTP700 is a very reliable radio and can be seen as lifeline for their employees."

17 of the C2000 regions have made a decision and awarded contracts for their terminals and 17 regions have chosen Motorola. Motorola is currently the leading supplier of TETRA subscribers in The Netherlands.

Within the next month Motorola will introduce its latest TETRA radio, the MTH800 for use on C2000. The MTH800 radio is already a great success in the UK with contracts awarded by all the Police Forces in Scotland and the Metropolitan Police in London. The MTH800 is recognised for its brilliant colour display, in built GPS, and its user-friendly man machine interface. Motorola is working hard to duplicate this success in The Netherlands and is working closely with the Customers and Distributors in The Netherlands to ensure rapid mobile intelligence for mission critical and business customers.
