Hytera delivers nationwide TETRA network for Thailand
Hytera Communications has successfully delivered a nationwide TETRA network for Thailand’s Department of Provincial Administration (DOPA) — a solution that aims to enhance governance and public safety across the country. TETRA DIB-R5 outdoor base stations, MT680 Plus mobile radios and PT580H Plus portable radios, along with network management systems, digital voice recording systems and a unified communication and dispatch platform, were deployed to ensure a complete overhaul of the legacy analog system and interoperability with the fixed telephony and mobile cellular networks.
DOPA’s legacy analog trunked system was beginning to show signs of age, with regular breakdowns and limited coverage. Transitioning to a new TETRA radio system presented a significant challenge for DOPA as it required wide compatibility and interoperability across the existing infrastructure.
DOPA aimed to extend the network coverage by connecting the TETRA system with existing analog networks, enabling more efficient interagency operations and better coordination between central and regional departments. Hytera’s innovative solution addressed this challenge by incorporating over 20 sets of analog gateways, which facilitated the interconnection between the TETRA system and the analog networks operating in different cities of Thailand.
Overall, the new system provided by Hytera was found to ensure wider signal coverage, better audio quality, and increased capacity for both voice and data transmission. It also allows for seamless communication and coordination between central and regional departments, enhancing interagency operations and promoting better collaboration.
The system optimises operational effectiveness for DOPA, allowing the Department to respond more quickly to incidents and emergencies as well as to address the day-to-day needs of citizens, including those in remote regions. The dispatching capabilities have been enhanced, allowing for more efficient resource allocation and cross-organisation coordination. Facilitating post-operation reviews and training also becomes streamlined with the ability to utilise voice and data recording.
“We are honoured to have supported DOPA in this crucial expansion,” said Lynn Lin, Sales Director of Hytera Southeast Asia. “The new TETRA-based system will empower the government staff and enhance safety by providing reliable and efficient communication capabilities across the nation.”
