Telia to Deploy Motorola Solutions MCPTT Carrier-Integrated Service
Wednesday, June 24, 2020 | Comments

Swedish telecom operator Telia signed a contract with Motorola Solutions to provide its customers with a next-generation, Third Generation Partnership Project (3GPP) standard-compliant and future-ready, mission-critical push-to-talk (MCPTT) solution.

The carrier-integrated mission-critical broadband PTT service connects individuals and groups instantly over Telia’s LTE network with the possibility for priority mechanisms. The service also includes a large set of enhanced multimedia services, such as push to video, push to text, geolocation and geofencing, device sharing and operational status messages.

The contract marks the first carrier-integrated mission-critical broadband PTT service powered by Motorola Solutions to be launched in the Nordics. Additionally, Motorola Solutions will provide its LEX L11 devices via its local channel partner Celab Communications.

Frontline workers in public-safety organizations and companies with business-critical processes depend on instant and reliable MCPTT services to coordinate everyday operations and unexpected emergency responses. Therefore, the service is suitable for use across multiple sectors, such as security, transportation, construction, utilities, healthcare, public services and industrial environments.

“Motorola Solutions’ mission-critical broadband PTT service will allow our customers to take advantage of two-way radio communications and broadband technologies over our leading infrastructure,'' said Staffan Akesson, chief technology officer (CTO) at Telia Sweden. “As one of Sweden’s leading telecommunications operators, we are committed to providing reliability to our customers alongside the highest quality of service especially as this technology is crucial in mission-critical situations.”

Motorola Solutions said it recently signed a contract for PTT services with Dutch telecommunications provider KPN and French operator SFR. Both operators are already providing the network-integrated mission-critical service to their customers and signed contracts with Dutch Rail in the Netherlands and the French National Railway company SNCF in France, Motorola said.

The service supports seamless interoperability between users on professional mobile radio (PMR) systems as well as 5G, 4G and 3G cellular networks. The service instantly connects teams across different devices, networks and locations no matter which technology they are using, a statement said.
