Tianjin Economic Technology Board to Implement Motorola’s TETRA Digital Trunking Solution
Beijing, China, 22nd November, 2005 – Motorola, Inc. (NYSE: MOT) today announced that it has signed a $12 million RMB Yuan (US$1.5Million) contract with the TEDA (Tianjin Economic-Technological Development Area) to deploy a TETRA-based Emergency Response Communication radio system under the Tianjin Government Radio Network (GRN). The new TETRA system will be completed and fully operational by mid-2006 to facilitate first responder communications in their mission-critical operations and emergency response.
“TEDA is the largest economic and technology development government body in China. The TETRA-based emergency response communication system will play a significant role in establishing TEDA as a leading government authority in driving new enhancements and investment to promote the region’s economic competitiveness and technology development. The TETRA digital trunking system is one critical part of the Emergency Response Communications system that will integrate the command and control communications for emergency crisis management, said Mr. Li Yong, director of TEDA Management Committee.
Under this contract, Motorola will be responsible for the system design, planning, programming, implementation, and maintenance of the entire system. This includes the installation of two fixed base stations, one mobile base station, several hundred of the TETRA MTP850 portables, MTM700 mobile terminals as well as intrinsically-safe MTP750 portables, and corresponding control and switching centres. The new network is based on Motorola’s new-generation Dimetra-IP technology and also will be seamlessly integrated with the 800MHz TETRA-based emergency response system based in Tianjin City. The integration between both systems will provide wider network coverage for the entire Tianjin area that is critical for first responders to performing their mission-critical operations faster and safely.
Mr. Ruey Bin Kao, President of Motorola (China) Electronics Ltd, said: “Our relationship with TEDA started as far as 12 years back. The commissioning of this project will further enhance our relationship with TEDA as it reinforces our current standing in the market as the partner-of-choice for mission critical communications solutions for emergency response centres.”
