Sweden's first commercial TETRA system!
Sweden's first commercial TETRA system! AerotechTelub Contracting AB has received an order for ca SEK 17M from the City of Gothenburg's Public Transport department regarding the TETRA system that will be used by, among others, the public transport in Gothenburg. TETRA stands for TErrestrial Trunked RAdio and is a digital platform for two-way radio. Europe leads the TETRA development that has initially been used by the Public Safety Services in different countries. The area of use for speech and data via radio is large. The City of Gothenburg takes the step towards commercial use by introducing the system into the public transport. Gothenburg has chosen a technology change-over that means going from a traditional analogue radio system for tram traffic to TETRA that has the capacity for both speech and data transfer as well as great possibilities of increasing the function and the area of use. The solution is a good example of AerotechTelub Contracting AB's competence and ability to implement new digital technology for new areas of use. This has taken place by utilizing a long and genuine experience with foundations in radio, mobile telephony and digital technology. For us, this is a very important order within an area that has great development potential, says Lennart Forslund, MD of AerotechTelub Contracting AB. In Gothenburg, TETRA will provide more secure, more flexible and quicker connections for speech within the public transport. Group calls and the priority for emergency calls are some of the functions that are special for the system. The good possibilities for data communication will initially be used by the Public Transport department's real time information system for the public transport. By sending position reports from vehicles very frequently without being affected by extra costs, enhances the precision in the information system. TETRA's capacity means that a number of applications can be of immediate interest, not only for the Public Transport department's operations, but also for the City of Gothenburg. We see great development possibilities for the operations with the functionality that the system provides, says Jan-Olof Berndtsson, Development Manager, Transport Department, City of Gothenburg.
