TETRA, a European standard for a trunked radio system, is a professional mobile radio and two-way transceiver specification. TETRA was specifically designed for use by government agencies, emergency services, for public safety networks, transport services and the military.
TETRA is the best solution for public safety applications, offering increased capacity, functionality and security compared to legacy systems. Popular TETRA terminal features for the public safety sector include encryption, authentication and ambience listening. In any case, TETRA offers the highest data capacity and throughput compared to other narrowband PMR standards. TETRA can guarantee the availability required for mission-critical communications, which underlines the value for money that TETRA delivers.
Powerful voice and data capabilities of TETRA include duplex voice calls and IP-packet data. Especially the availability of radios with built-in GPS, Radio User Assignment and intrinsically safe ATEX terminals is highly appreciated in the airport and seaport sectors. TETRA being an open standard and offering interoperability of system elements, customers can choose any mix of technologies, with the full confidence that they will work together seamlessly.
Rohill’s next-generation, digital TetraNode solution was the first to offer a multi-protocol capability, enabling a smooth, unhurried migration from legacy equipment. Capacity can be fine-tuned on a TetraNode network, making it scalable and a cost-effective solution from single-site to nationwide deployment. After the launch of TetraNode, Rohill decided to further specialize in system infrastructure and system-related solutions. Rohill’s adherence to commercial off-the-shelf (COTS) hardware and software and open standards has proven to be of particular value to governments and industrial users. They can source radio units and other components from multiple suppliers, allowing greater choice and guaranteeing availability of system parts in the future. With more than 40 years of experience in the industry, Rohill has earned the respect of the professional radio communications market and has gained an excellent international reputation for providing specialized networks and solutions.
