Our customer, the Norwegian Directorate for Emergency Communication (DNK) is hosting the Nødnett opening event in Kirkenes today, on Tuesday 1st December.
Motorola Solutions took over as the prime contractor of Nødnett to the Norwegian authorities in February 2012. Since then, our team of more than 500 people from 32 nations with partners and subcontractors, has designed, ordered, built, installed, integrated and tested every component of the Nødnett system.
The core network consists of multiple switches (MSO) in secure locations based on a Dimetra IP platform. The core network is connected to a nationwide radio network of 2100 base stations with a resilient transmission system of 300 rings and 600 connections. The radio coverage includes over 300 tunnels and Air-Ground-Air coverage for rescue and police helicopters.
