Motorola Solutions to Receive Certification for its TETRA Radio Portfolio from German Federal Authority

IDSTEIN, Germany – 20. December, 2012 – Motorola Solutions (NYSE:MSI), a leading provider of mission-critical communication solutions, receives the certification for its complete TETRA (Terrestrial Trunked Radio) terminal portfolio from the German Federal Agency for Digital Radio of Security Authorities and Organisations (BDBOS). The certification includes the Motorola MTP830FuG, MTP850FuG, MTP850Ex, MTP810Ex and MTP850 TETRA handheld portable digital radios as well as the MTM800FuG TETRA vehicle mobile radio. This again underlines Motorola’s leading position in developing and implementing TETRA digital radio solutions for the German security authorities and organisations (Behörden und Organisationen mit Sicherheitsaufgaben, BOS).

At the end of September 2012, Motorola received the first BDBOS certification for a TETRA terminal with its TCR1000 TETRA Covert Radio. The examination by an independent BDBOS test laboratory attests that Motorola’s TETRA terminal portfolio fulfils the highest performance and security standards.

Motorola has been supplying TETRA digital radios and equipment as well as associated services to a number of German security authorities and organisations since the first TETRA invitations to tender in 2009. These include security forces in Berlin, Hessen, Mecklenburg-Western Pomerania, Lower Saxony, Saxony-Anhalt, Schleswig-Holstein and Thuringia as well as federal security organisations. Recently, Motorola delivered the 100,000th TETRA digital radio terminal to the German BOS – another important milestone for the introduction of TETRA technology in Germany. The global Motorola Competence Centre for TETRA digital radio is located in Berlin.


  • TETRA digital two-way radio solutions from Motorola are characterised by robust design and intuitive operation. The FuG series supports end-to-end encryption in accordance with the requirements of the German Federal Office for Information Security (BSI) for tap-proof communication. The radios make use of an easy-to-use cell phone like interface which speeds adaption as users are more familiar with how to operate the radio. Moreover, the portable ATEX radios – the MTP850Ex and MTP810Ex – are especially suited for use in hazardous environments
  • With the certification, the Federal Agency for Digital Radio of Security Authorities and Organisations ensures that TETRA digital radio devices meet the sophisticated requirements of the German BOS. An independent test laboratory has been assigned by the BDBOS to audit features such as encryption, frequency performance, compliance with the Electromagnetic Compatibility (EMC) legislation as well as functionality such as radio transmission or group calls.
  • The Motorola TETRA portfolio comprises infrastructure solutions, terminals, applications and services, which are currently used in over 100 countries around the world. The company continues to maintain its leading position in the area of TETRA digital radio solutions and has delivered more than 1.9 million TETRA digital radios world-wide. Motorola’s robust, intuitively operated products are subjected to rigorous testing at every stage from the development phase onwards in order to guarantee high quality and reliable operation, even under extreme conditions.
