Nordic Officials Sign Agreement for 3-Country Public-Safety Communications
Wednesday, May 16, 2018 | Comments

Officials from the Swedish Civil Contingencies Agency (MSB), the Finnish State Security Networks Group and Norway’s Directorate of Emergency Communication (DNK) signed a letter of intent (LoI) to start a three-country project to design communications possibilities among emergency services in all three countries.

The project will build on the experiences and solutions from the three bilateral projects. The project managers said they look forward to working with three-country communications, along with end user representatives from each country.

The project will target technology beyond TETRA, according to a Norwegian white paper on the topic.

In recent years, the three countries have worked to connect their TETRA public-safety communications networks with an Inter-System-Interface (ISI) solution. Finland and Norway made a first call between the networks last year. Sweden and Norway announced the first cross-border TETRA agreement in 2016.
