What is TETRA?
TETRA is a technology that was designed specifically for the private mobile radio market, with public safety features at the fore.
TETRA offers a complete, resilient and totally secure, service-rich communications solution.
Currently in operation in thousands of communications systems worldwide, it is a proven technology and, as an open, international standard – defined by ETSI, the European Telecommunications Standards Institute, in 1995 – it gives users access to a multi-vendor market.
Its reliability, availability and security are determining factors in its success. Additionally, TETRA’s interoperability in the event of a major incident means that public safety agencies such as police, fire and ambulance services can instantly communicate with transport staff.
Specifically designed for use by government agencies and emergency services, it has become the worldwide standard of choice for an increasing range of sectors seeking the best critical communications technology available.
TETRA has the major advantage over cellular mobile systems in being able to support a wide variety of specialised, instant Push-To-Talk (PTT) voice call applications, including group, broadcast and individual calling, not to mention Direct Mode Operation (DMO) communications.
Also, unlike commercial cellular networks, TETRA provides coverage and capacity exactly where it is required, even during busy periods, and delivers much higher levels of redundancy, reliability, availability, robustness and security.
