Telia signs contract with Motorola Solutions to provide customers with MCPTT

The leading telecommunications operator in Sweden Telia, has signed a contract with Motorola Solutions. According to an announcement published by Motorola Solutions, the contract will provide Telia customers with a next-generation, Third Generation Partnership Project (3GPP) standard-compliant and future-ready, mission-critical-push-to-talk (MCPTT) solution over its LTE network. The contract marks a promising new phase, as it will power the first carrier-integrated mission-critical broadband PTT service in the Nordics.

The service provided by Motorola Solutions will be useful for different sectors such as security, transportation, construction, and healthcare, according to Motorola. It connects individuals and groups instantly over Telia’s LTE network with the possibility of priority mechanisms.

The Kodiak Mission Critical PTT (MCPTT) platform founded by Motorola Solutions provides a stable foundation for compliance with future mission-critical communication capabilities including MCData and MCVideo. This platform comes after years of the company’s expertise in MCPTT. In fact, according to the White Paper- MCPTT service from Motorola Solutions, the journey to MCPTT, began in 2015.

MCPTT devices are crucial nowadays following the Covid-19 pandemic. The Kodiak MCPTT platform also provides the LEX L11 Mission Critical LTE Device – the device provides first responders with high-quality radio performance, noise, and echo cancellation. Motorola will provide the LEX L11 device via its local channel partners Celab Communications.

Staffan Akesson, CTO at Telia Sweden said that as one of Sweden’s leading communications operators, they are committed to providing their customers with high-quality services. “The Motorola MCPTT services provide customers with an advantage of two-way radio communications and broadband technologies over Telia’s infrastructures” states Akesson. 

“The MCPTT platform delivers best-in-class performance in terms of cost-efficiency, reliability, scalability, voice quality, and the wide range of advanced features it offers,” claims Michael Kaae, regional vice president of Europe at Motorola Solutions. The company is looking forward to supporting its customers in taking on this new service, he said.

The American data communications and telecommunications equipment provider Motorola solutions, have already signed contracts with the Dutch telecommunications provider KPN and the French mobile communications company SFR.
