Research focus on TETRA

Wednesday, 17 September, 2008

A Spanish industrial consortium, led by Teltronic, is championing research into broadband professional mobile communications to satisfy the demands of professional users.

TETRA’s natural evolution involving the implementation of TEDS allows the technology’s hegemony to be extended as far as a moderate 'wideband' capability, allowing an increased rate of data transmission (probably the last step left for TETRA to take).

However, users themselves are already dictating the rules for this evolution, beyond the immediate future: video streaming, high-speed data transfer, real-time access to remote content.

Teltronic is prepared for the challenges ahead. Formally launched in 2007, the TelMAX Project is one of the most ambitious research proposals yet undertaken by a Spanish consortium.

TelMAX is being driven forward with contributions from a number of universities and technology centres dedicated to consolidating the future of professional mobile communications for at least the next decade.

The results that emerge from the TelMAX research will feed into product offerings for professional users.

There is a real possibility of being able to combine TETRA’s efficiency in providing key narrowband services with the attractiveness of a straightforward, natural extension of such a system via broadband wireless base stations and mobile devices that can be integrated into a single ethernet/IP architecture.

Over the past decade it has been shown how naturally the concepts of TETRA and IP could be combined in the design of network architecture.

This initiative intends to bring together the state of the art in mobile networks, ie, broadband capacity, with the inherent robustness and accessibility of professional systems.

The project proposes a total renewal of PMR’s technology base combining the perspective of experienced companies with the freshness of academic research.
