Radio communications specialist ETELM announced that it will demonstrate TETRA and LTE interoperability at CCW 2019. The company will showcase the live network at stand C86 in Kuala Lumpur.

Radio communications specialist ETELM is set to showcase TETRA and LTE interoperability with a live network demonstration at Critical Communications World (CCW) 2019.

The company, which is based in France, will be showcasing its 4G Linked technology, which allows organisations to operate both LTE and TETRA networks as part of their mission critical communications infrastructure.

4G Linked uses the LTE Core as the fully distributed, IP based network, meaning organisations can connect both narrowband TETRA and broadband directly to the same 4G backhaul network.

Ultimately, this enables organisations to use LTE, TETRA and other standards such as DMR and analogue radio over a single transmission network and provides a means of balancing the benefits and functionality of both next-generation mobile cellular technology and tactically deployed professional mobile radio communications networks.

Nicolas Hauswald, CEO of ETELM, said: “Private LTE technology provides organisations with the ability to make use of applications that demand higher bandwidth. However, despite great advances in standardization with all mission critical features, it is ultimately still an emerging technology and organisations still require legacy radio systems to deliver many key services.

Responsibility cannot be simply outsourced in these cases and the tactical deployment of professional mobile radio networks is essential.

In these cases, our 4G Linked solution allows organisations to operate one single, hybrid network that provides the best of both technologies, without having to compromise on interoperability across the network.”

ETELM will be showcasing 4G Linked on stand C86.

Critical Communications World (CCW) 2019 take place from Tuesday 18th June to Thursday 20th June at the Malaysia International Trade and Exhibition Centre (MITEC) in Kuala Lumpur.
