Motorola Solutions assumes responsibility to deliver Norway’s nationwide public-safety project

Published:  01 March, 2012

Prime contractor responsibility taken over with immediate effect from Nokia Siemens Networks for Norway´s Nødnett TETRA public safety network.

Motorola Solutions and Nokia Siemens Networks (NSN) have finalised the transaction to transfer responsibility for the Norwegian nationwide TETRA Nødnett project including the NSN transfer of 25 employees from NSN locally in Norway to Motorola Solutions. The agreement to take over the project as the prime contractor from NSN was announced earlier this year on 11th January.

All regulatory approvals, including Norwegian government approval, have now been obtained, and Motorola Solutions has assumed responsibility for the continued roll out, implementation and operation of the nationwide Nødnett network for Norway´s public safety agencies with immediate effect.

The revenues for Motorola Solutions as the prime contractor through 2026 are anticipated to be approximately US$750 million. This project represents one of Motorola Solutions’ largest nationwide public safety contracts.



Nødnett is the multi-agency digital radio communication system owned by a separate administration body, Direktoratet for Nødkommunikasjon (DNK – The Directorate for Emergency Communication), which leads the development of the communication network for emergency and public safety services in Norway and is subordinated to the Ministry of Justice.

With this transfer of responsibility, Motorola Solutions broadens its scope from being sub-supplier of the technology for the core TETRA (Terrestrial Trunked Radio) digital radio communications infrastructure to become the prime contractor including all managed services for the roll out and implementation of the system.

NSN employees related to the Nødnett project have transferred to Motorola Solutions in Norway as part of the transaction. They are now part of Motorola Solutions´ Global Services Organization, which has deep expertise in integrating and operating complex mission-critical communications networks.

Tor Helge Lyngstøl, director, The Directorate for Emergency Communication (DNK), Norway, commented: “Mission critical communications are a core area for Motorola Solutions, and we are pleased that the company’s role in the project is being expanded. Motorola Solutions has been a key supplier of the core technology in the Nødnett Project from day one and the rollout will continue on schedule.”
