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.

World's most popular

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

In the year 2014 alone, Airbus 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 built 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.

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.

These base stations are fascinating


The "Six reasons TETRA base stations fascinate me" blog post says it - the TB3-series base stations really are something else!

Even so, you don’t have to be fascinated with base stations to appreciate a larger radio coverage area or a special shape of radio coverage. If you need such a solution, the TB3-series TETRA base stations are your choice. TB3 base stations are the only TETRA base stations that can achieve coverage-maximizing, high-gain, virtual omni configuration. They are also the only ones on the market that can provide directional coverage, too.
