TB3 TETRA base station

Unrivalled coverage with optimal cost

You as a TETRA network operator have to deal with these issues:

  • The network has to cover the whole area where users may operate
  • The network needs to work all the time
  • There are relatively few users in the network. Not millions like in commercial mobile networks.

The TB3-series base stations can help you with the challenges. They are sensitive and powerful. Use them to build excellent radio coverage without black spots very cost-effectively.

The TB3-series base station models have become the most popular in the world:

  • For example, in 2014, Airbus DS delivered around 5,800 TETRA base station radios, more than any previous year.
  • The coverage for the world's largest TETRA network in Germany is build with TB3 TETRA base stations.

The TB3 can improve

  • Quality of service
  • Radio coverage
  • Or achieve a combination of the two.

A better network means safer operations for the network's users.

Still using the TBS2?

Does your network still use TBS2 base stations? There are three great reasons why you should let go of the previous generation.

  • Do more with less
  • Get better coverage and save money
  • Save power, money and the environment

Do more with less

The TB3-series base stations are extremely sensitive. This means they can “hear” radios much further away. In effect, one new base station gives you a larger radio coverage than before.

Get better coverage and save money

Adopt the small X pol panel antennas which the TB3-series base station supports. They are smaller than vertical panel antennas with the same gain. They still provide better radio coverage when used with the TB3 thanks to six way diversity. Smaller antennas can also mean lower site rental fees.

Save power, money and the environment

You can do yourself, your wallet and the environment a favour by adopting TB3-series base stations. They use around 30% less power than the old TBS2s. For example, if the base station should lose its power feed, the TB3 can stay operational for around 30% longer with the same type of batteries.
