Motorola Solutions said it has shipped 3.5 million TETRA digital radios to public-safety and commercial customers worldwide.

To mark the milestone, Christoph Thomas, MSSSI Vice president sales and country manager Motorola Solutions Germany, handed over a specially designed TETRA digital radio terminal to Dr. Dieter Romann, president of the Presidium of the German Federal Police, at Motorola Solutions’ newly opened TETRA Center of Excellence in Berlin.

“The delivery of the 3.5 millionth TETRA radio terminal reinforces our position as a trusted market leader in providing mission-critical solutions to public-safety and commercial organizations worldwide,” said Mark Schmidl, corporate vice president of sales for Motorola Solutions in Europe, Middle East and Africa. “We will continue to invest in both TETRA and new mobile broadband-based smart public-safety solutions. As the TETRA market continues to evolve, driven by systems upgrades, innovations and new requirements from front line professionals we will continue to enable our customers to work safer, smarter and in the most extreme environments.”

“At IHS we feel positive about the TETRA market,” said Thomas Lynch, director for safe cities, critical communications and security research at IHS Markit. “We see TETRA as a complementary technology for broadband technologies, which are growing in popularity. We expect the market to continue to grow as organizations look to move to digital also because TETRA is a proven mission-critical technology, trusted by governments and public safety organizations throughout the world.”

Interesting that TETRA is the best thing since sliced bread — only if it is outside the U.S. At the same time Motorola is blowing their own horn about how great TETRA is, how it is a mission-critical technology used around the world, how they've shipped their 3.5 millionth unit, they totally trash it and avoid it at all cost in the U.S. I've tried to buy a TETRA radio from them in the U.S; they will not sell me one. There's something very wrong with that.
