Romania is improving its first responder communications network. Motorola Solutions will modernize and expand the coverage of the existing nationwide TETRA (Terrestrial Trunked Radio) network in Romania to provide the country’s public safety organizations with highly resilient and secure mission-critical communications.

The move aims to bolster the day-to-day operations of first responders and public safety agencies with an augmented coverage of the nationwide TETRA network while supporting Romania’s emergency services with greater flexibility and security.

As part of the seven-year framework agreement awarded by the Romanian government’s 800 TETRA base stations will be installed across the country. The new digital radio technology will support all police, fire, ambulance, and national security services.

The new network will also provide an interconnection between TETRA and broadband through the next-generation, 3GPP standard-compliant mission-critical push-to-talk WAVE solution. This extends the TETRA network to enhance collaboration between teams.

The company has also recently rolled-out body-worn camera and communications deployments with the Romanian Police, Romanian Border Police and Romanian Ministry of Internal Affairs.
