TETRA Communication Solutions - Eemits Communications Ltd


Tetra is a common digital trunked standard for two way radio. The standard developed by European Telecommunications Standardisation Institute (ETSI) assures the interoperability between various manufacturers terminals that can indistinctly operate on any TETRA network. This is not currently the case for digital dPMR or DMR two radio.

This technology is targeted primarily at the mobile radio needs of public safety groups (such as police and fire departments), utility companies, and other enterprises that provide voice and data communications services. In recent years, when European disasters have struck, emergency response teams from several European nations had a difficult time communicating with each other, due in part to the lack of standardization in their mobile radio equipment. The TETRA standards evolved to answer this communication challenge as well as others faced or anticipated by the European Commission (EC) in its efforts to unify European countries.

The Main TETRA features are:

  • Digital voice quality
  • Fast emergency call set-up
  • Comprehensive support to group and individual voice and data communications
  • Communications also in fringe or out of coverage areas with direct mode of operation (DMO)
  • Multiple security schemes and algorithms (two encryption levels)
  • Data transmission at up to 28.8Kbps and simultaneous with voice
  • Standard interfaces for data terminal connections (PEI) and for TETRA networks interconnection (ISI)

It is good that I can just talk to one of the engineers and be talked through problems over the phone, rather than wait for them to come over and incur call out charges.

We are now in our second rental term with Eemits and have found it to be an economical way of ensuring that we have the latest equipment at an affordable price.

In addition the headache of maintaining and repairing the equipment is also removed as it's all included in the price.
