Motorola Solutions, a leading provider of mission-critical communications solutions, and Nokia Siemens Networks (NSN) have finalized the transaction to transfer responsibility for the Norwegian nationwide TETRA Nodnett 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 Nodnett 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.

KEY FACTS

— Nodnett is the multi-agency digital radio communication system owned by a separate administration body, Direktoratet for Nodkommunikasjon (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 Nodnett 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.

— Motorola Solutions has a proven track record as a systems operator for nationwide public safety networks, including in Denmark as owner of the operator company.

— Motorola Solutions is celebrating its 30th anniversary in Norway, and the Nodnett contract further demonstrates Motorola Solutions’ long-term commitment to the Norwegian market.

— TETRA technology is an ETSI standard developed with and for public organizations. Motorola Solutions is a leading TETRA solutions supplier with a
TETRA portfolio comprising infrastructure solutions, terminals, applications and services, which are currently delivered and in use in more than 100 countries around the world. Motorola Solutions has shipped more than 1.5 million TETRA terminals worldwide.
