Hybrid roaming

One of the best examples of LTE, TETRA and an app working together

The Hybrid Roaming solution in Tactilon Dabat means that the user will be able to communicate as long as there is either TETRA or LTE network service available. This solution is one of the best examples of LTE, TETRA and an application working together.

With the Tactilon Agnet application, Tactilon Dabat can automatically move from using the TETRA network to using an LTE broadband network or vice versa.

In other words, users are not restricted to stay within TETRA coverage.

The story

Let's face it. TETRA radios have stayed incredibly similar to what they were 15 years ago, when they were first brought into use.

There have been improvements, of course. Some radios are lighter and smaller. Some are more robust. Some have large colour displays. Their design and ergonomics may have improved and they deliver more TETRA features. However, the devices are essentially the same.

All this time, consumer devices have been completely transformed. Smart devices are completely different from the mobile phones that were introduced 15 years ago.

The contrast between the professional radio and the smart device of today has led to more and more people using both for work.

Two devices instead of just the professional radio.

Two devices are not better than one

It’s good to carry both a radio and a smartphone because one can, almost, be a backup for the other. But there are drawbacks.

  • Two devices means you have to keep them both charged and in working order
  • Two devices weigh more than one
  • Information cannot move easily or securely from the radio to the smartphone and back
  • Two devices also means two separate earphones - where’s your third ear for listening to your customers?  
  • And what if there’s a call on both devices at the same time? Which one will you respond to first?

One device that is better than two

Tactilon Dabat eliminates the drawbacks of carrying two devices. It combines the functions of a mission-critical radio and a smartphone into a single device.
