Gold Coast 2018 Games Selects TETRA Network from Motorola Solutions
Friday, June 30, 2017 | Comments

Motorola Solutions was chosen as the official radio communications supplier for the Gold Coast 2018 Commonwealth Games in Queensland, Australia, 4 – 15 April. The global, 11-day sporting spectacular will attract 6,600 athletes and team officials from 70 nations and territories, 15,000 volunteers and be broadcast to a cumulative international audience of 1.5 billion.

Ensuring an event of this scale delivers a positive experience for guests and athletes depends on clear and reliable voice communications working constantly behind the scenes.
Motorola Solutions’ TETRA digital radios and its Zeon digital network will be used to keep sporting venues connected to seamless information while helping to keep crowds moving and spectators and athletes informed and safe.

The Zeon digital network will provide reliable communications and expansive coverage with more than 6,000 radios to be used across the Gold Coast and Brisbane and in other regional centers including Townsville and Cairns.

“The company has a proven track record in Queensland, providing crucial communications support for our emergency services, and I’m pleased they’ve come on board for the games,” said Commonwealth Games Minister Kate Jones. “Our games are well on the way to becoming one of Queensland’s greatest sporting success stories.”
