TETRA experiences continued growth

Friday, 19 April, 2013

TETRA continues to dominate the critical communications market, according to data released by IMS Research which shows that 2012 is the third consecutive year for record shipments by manufacturers of TETRA equipment. The technology is being deployed in more regions than ever before, and showing strong acceptance in a growing number of vertical markets.

“TETRA is a robust and highly specified standard that has proven its worth time and time again to its users, and to the wider public who depend on critical communications for their safety and security,” said Phil Kidner, CEO of the TETRA and Critical Communications Association (TCCA).

“The established leader throughout the world, there are still new markets opening up,” added Kidner. “These include North America, where we are seeing TETRA being adopted for the first time in the utilities and public transport sectors.”

“Our study shows growth of more than 12% in the number of terminals shipped in 2012 compared to 2011,” said Deryn Evans, senior mobile radio market analyst at IMS Research. “The European public safety and security market remains the backbone of the TETRA market; however, we are seeing increasing success for TETRA in a number of user areas and regions that are not traditional strongholds of the technology.”
