Motorola Products > TETRA Terminals & Infrastructure > MTP3250 TETRA Portable Two-Way Radio



The feature rich MTP3250, including GPS provides a complete package for TETRA service, coupled with the addition of a full keypad. Additional versatility is provided by Bluetooth connectivity for accessories and collaborative devices. This TETRA radio is optimised for excellent audio performance and durability for use in all types of noisy and demanding situations where user safety is paramount. This terminal incorporates a new side connector for increased ruggedness. Providing higher power will increase range and in-building performance, and so Motorola has added Class 3L (1.8W) power output option. Taken together with high receive sensitivity, the MTP3250 has the capability for maintaining communications in the most demanding situations.

Motorola’s MTP3250 TETRA portable radio delivers the high performance and dependability required for enhanced workforce productivity and assured user safety. Leveraging the best features of a two-way public safety radio, the MTP3250 has been engineered to ensure loud and clear communications even in high noise work environments.

Built to Last

The MTP3250 has been made to the highest quality levels and exceeds all 11 categories in the MIL-810 standard. Further, like all Motorola TETRA radios, MTP3250 has been designed to pass an Accelerated Life Test simulating over 5 years use; these tests ensure it will withstand tough conditions and provide durability that helps to drive down lifecycle support costs.

One Device for all Critical Communications

The MTP3250 radio takes advantage of all the benefits of TETRA digital technology to drive workforce productivity and safety. These include exceptional audio quality with full duplex voice services, PABX and PSTN interconnection, individual and group calls, priority and emergency calls, Short Data Services and Localisation Services. The MTP3250 also benefits from the inherent protection of TETRA digital signalling. Coupled with the Mutual Authentication feature the MTP3250 provides a secure communications platform. It goes without saying that Motorola radios are designed for reliability and support, no matter how critical the mission.
