In any situation, professionals must be able to communicate:

  • With their colleagues in the field
  • With other teams
  • With mobile applications
  • With the dispatching or command centre.

Smart devices and new data applications

TETRA evolution

More and more, the users of critical communications also need to use new data applications and smart devices. Broadband solutions are needed in addition to TETRA.

It would not make sense to replace an existing well-serving mission critical or business critical network with an alternative that does not meet all requirements. A better solution is to evolve the current network into a hybrid TETRA and LTE network.
