CHICAGO -- Motorola Solutions said it has won a contract to build a communications network for emergency responders in Tasmania, an island state of Australia.

The contract to design, build, operate and maintain Tasmania's Government Radio Network will provide enhanced digital communication and vastly improved radio network coverage for Tasmania's public safety and essential services personnel, Motorola said.


The Government Radio Network will be constructed over the next three years with associated services running over 12 years. The network will be more secure and replace five separate systems, the company said.

"The new communications service will enable Tasmania's emergency services to manage increasingly complex operational requirements, from combating natural disasters, to dealing with the evolving security landscape and beyond," said Con Balaskas, vice president Motorola Solutions Australia and New Zealand.

Terms of the contract were not disclosed.
