Mobile Tornado Group plc, the leading provider of mobile applications to the enterprise market sees opportunities in TETRA
Charman Peter Wilkinson: "given the pressures on public sector budgets throughout the world, we are seeing an increasing interest in our solution as a complement to existing platforms".
Peter Wilkinson, Chairman of Mobile Tornado Group plc, leading provider of mobile applications to the enterprise market explained yesterday in his review of operations and interim financial results hat the closest competing technology for their solution is Private Mobile Radio ('PMR') solutions with TETRA being the best known.
According to Wilkinson, PMR is a heavy duty, costly network designed for near universal coverage and availability, with very quick call set up and group communications. A mobile data based solution such as ours is unlikely to displace PMR for the emergency services and other critical users.
However, given the pressures on public sector budgets throughout the world, we are seeing an increasing interest in our solution as a complement to existing platforms, given the need to make significant cuts in spending. In addition, there are certain countries that have not yet deployed PMR platforms in country, and who are now actively considering the alternatives, given the relative cost benefits. We hope to capitalise on these emerging trends and will update shareholders as they progress.
