Switch

The Sepura Systems FTS100 switch is used to switch TETRA encoded voice packets.

The central controller of the switch is a server which manages  several key tasks of the TETRA infrastructure.

Unlike other architectures, the central controller of the Sepura Systems switch does not take on any of the tasks from the base station.  This means that tasks such as the control of the air interface, arranging conversations within the cell, registration of terminals and assigning radio channels are undertaken exclusively within the base station.  Because these tasks do not require any resources from the central switch, the additional available capability of a base station in fallback mode is guaranteed.
