Effective and reliable communications can make the difference between life and death. Nowhere is this more evident than in ‘safety critical’ environments, such as those found in the oil, gas, petrochemical, mining, manufacturing and construction industries.
TETRA two-way digital radio systems were designed with ‘mission critical’ users in mind and are able to support high levels of coverage, capacity, reliability, availability, security and redundancy.
The oil and gas sector as a whole faces a huge range of challenges which affect its communications requirements. Maintaining safety of operation in dangerous situations and dealing quickly with any incidents arising are two of the key considerations. Optimising the workload and maximising the efficiency of the workforce, meeting the enhanced need for security and dealing with extremes of temperature and adverse weather conditions are also highly important.
Designed to be secure, resilient, feature-rich and inter-operable, TETRA has become the clear choice for many organisations in the oil and gas sector.
With Intrinsically Safe options meeting IECEx/ATEX standards, our specialist solutions provide a powerful voice and data network that supports and enhances production - reducing costs, maximising output and promoting swift decision-making.
As such, TETRA solutions are ideally suited to safety critical environments.
