After the revolutionary change from analogue to digital technology, PMR network operators and owners are experiencing the evolution to broadband communications and migration to IP technology.
Tetrapol networks continue to give valuable service for another 15-20 years. Now is the time to modernize these networks, because network modernization
Network modernization is best implemented as a series of maintenance steps, not as a single large investment.
In a hybrid network, public safety organizations will use Tetrapol services for mission-critical voice and data and get mobile broadband services step-by-step.
The operator can offer the broadband services based on
Learn more from the white paper "The bridge to broadband - The best way to build a hybrid Tetrapol and LTE network". The paper discusses the evolution of mission critical communications and the options there are for mission critical mobile broadband. It also explains how the transition to broadband can best be managed.
The existing broadband networks, as they are today, cannot replace Tetrapol networks in mission critical communications because there are many unsolved issues. For example:
It would not make sense to replace an existing well-serving public safety network with an alternative that does not meet the critical requirements.
Tetrapol network modernization includes migration from TDM to IP transmission. This is the first step towards mission-critical broadband.
Here is a 10 minute guide on how to get the best out of your Tetrapol network with IP migration:
The path to hardware independence. New Control Node and Gateways are to run in a virtual environment.
IP migration is underway in several regional networks, such as:
