Introduction to TETRA Technology, Terrestrial Trunked Radio Technology

Introduction to TETRA Technology, Terrestrial Trunked Radio Technology is an  overview of TETRA technology for non-communication engineers, managers, non-engineers, technicians,  and operation professionals.

Learn about TErrestrial Trunked RAdio (TETRA) as a digital trunked mobile radio standard developed by ETSI to meet the needs of traditional Professional Mobile Radio (PMR) user organisations such as:

  • Airports
  • Commercial & Industry
  • Government
  • Military
  • Oil & Gas
  • Power Utilities
  • Public Access Mobile Radio (PAMR)
  • Police
  • Public Safety
  • Transportation
  • Utilities

Learn about TETRA standard and how it meets the needs of a variety of traditional PMR user organizations including scaleable architecture allowing economic network deployments ranging from single site local area coverage to multiple site wide area national coverage.

Who Should Attend:

  • TETRA Project Managers
  • Construction Managers
  • TETRA system users
  • TETRA  Network managers
