Nødnett is a digital network for police, health services and fire and rescue services. In addition, Nødnett can be used by organisations participating in rescue and emergency work. The country-wide build out was completed in 2015.
Nødnett is built to be resilient in order to meet the needs of the emergency services. Users must have TETRA radios approved to work with Nødnett. Talk groups are set up internally within the agencies and in groups in common with other emergency services. Only those actively given access to the individual talk groups can listen in. Nødnett radios can also send and receive text messages and can be used to exchange small amounts of data.
