DNK’s area of responsibility, including the operation and development of Nødnett, will be transferred to The Norwegian Directorate for Civil Protection (DSB).
Several key organisations with responsibility for critical communication and preparedness in Norway gathered for a workshop on the demands and needs for next generation mobile broadband for public safety users.
The owners of the Public Safety Radio networks in Sweden, Norway and Finland emphasize the importance of dedicated frequencies in the 700 MHz-band for emergency communications in a joint white paper.
The official opening of nationwide Nødnett took place in Kirkenes of Northern Norway December 1st, in the presence of His Majesty and the Minister of Justice and Public Security.
Norway and Sweden conduct industry’s first interoperability testing of communications technology.
Nødnett is a digital nationwide multi-agency public safety network. Nødnett provides reliable communication when it counts
Number of radio terminals activated
Number of calls in Nødnett last month
Number of integrated base stations in Nødnett
Number of tunnels with Nødnett
Bringing together all organisations and agencies who have public safety roles into a shared radio communications system will make the work of the emergency services more efficient.
Nødnett is discrete and separate from any public access systems.
The primary users of the emergency network are the three emergency services, fire, police and health.
TETRA (Terrestrial Trunked Radio) has been standardised in Europe by ETSI (The European Telecommunications Standards Institute).
With Nødnett the different agencies exchange information between them, for example, on the way to and from the scene of an incident.
All the members of a speech group/talkgroup in Nødnett can listen to the traffic in that group. An individual may belong to more than one speech group.
TETRA is an open standard where the focus is on meeting the critical needs for communication within the areas of 'public safety and security'.
All Nødnett radios have safety and security alarm facilities that cut through lower priority traffic and put the user in direct contact with his, or her, operations centre.
TETRA (Terrestrial Trunked Radio) is a mobile radio system for emergency and public safety agencies.
TETRA is specially developed for emergency communication, and is used in severel countires in Europe.
