Motorola to build German armed forces network
The German armed forces have awarded a contract to Motorola Solutions to design and build a deployable digital communications system.
The networks will include TETRA and LTE solutions, the latter of which will be for the transmission of data. The contract includes the delivery of 12,500 handheld devices alongside 4,000 mobile and fixed radios. The systems will be interoperable with the German national emergency services network (BDBOS), as well as those operated by NATO and the EU.
Speaking of the roll-out, a spokesperson for Motorola Solutions said: “Mission-critical communication remains essential to the success of the German armed forces. [It faces] challenges such as handling complex situations in remote and dangerous environments, as well as the need to analyse large amounts of data.”
Motorola senior vice president, Mark Schmidl, said: “Germany remains a priority market for Motorola Solutions, where we have supported public safety for over 50 years. We look forward to providing the German armed forces with future-leading communication networks to drive the digitisation of the force, and support them in their mission.”
