TETRA network expanded

Monday, 19 October, 2009

EADS Defence & Security is extending the TETRA radio network of Stadtwerke München. Around 1000 subscribers use the network, which is being expanded from 15 to a total of 31 TB3 base stations.

SWM, the network operator, also offers M-funk to external users. Supported by EADS Defence & Security, SWM acquired MAN Nutzfahrzeuge as its first major customer for M-funk.

The SWM radio network is used primarily by MAN's works fire brigade and its plant protection and maintenance units.

The marketing of these services to third parties creates special challenges for the system infrastructure. EADS TETRA networks support independent and secure use by different organisations through the use of virtual private network technology.

They can be flexibly extended without having any impact on the functionality. Growing subscriber numbers and network extensions pose no problems and are possible at all times.

Numerous interfaces integrate existing infrastructures and user specific applications. Up-to-date data are available for the analysis of usage statistics and billing.

SWM is in a good position to market the TETRA M-funk network. On the basis of Java applications, it programs user-specific solutions such as fault notification systems, power panel plant applications, retrieval of telephone book functions and GPS-based positioning functions for the EADS TETRA terminals.
