If you need high capacity mission-critical voice communications, you need a Terrestrial Trunked Radio (TETRA) solution designed for high data throughput with a Long-Term Evolution (LTE) overlay.
TETRA will remain the core European Telecommunication Standards Institute (ETSI) open standard voice and basic data solution for some time to come. It’s a terrestrial digital mobile radio four-time slot 25kHz channel solution that can be used for communications systems as small as a single site, up to total extensive area coverage scalability for nationwide networks.
Internationally recognised LTE adds high-speed mobile data connectivity for those users requiring streaming video and other bandwidth-intensive information transfer needs. Whether you need either technologies or just one, our TETRA or LTE offerings enable the flexibility of a single network solution.
We deliver enhanced, essential capacity data communications with our TETRA Enhanced Data Service (TEDS), which currently utilises a 50 kHz channel solution. This capability offers a higher than basic data throughput with the capacity to meet most mobile data needs.
We have extensive experience in deploying both large and small, fully I-based TETRA solutions for customers in the public safety, mining, oil & gas and utility sectors. LTE for private networks awaits regulatory allocations in our region of operation.
If you need business-critical communications, our Digital Mobile Radio (DMR) is the solution for you.
DMR includes a two-time slot conventional 12.5 kHz channel solution – and because the handsets operate at power levels equivalent to traditional analogue, they provide similar range capabilities and higher quality audio to the edge of coverage. This range capability allows a lower capacity-demanding user to benefit as the extended range means lower infrastructure costs.
DMR can operate in both conventional, (Tier II), and trunked, (Tier III) mode, as defined by the ETSI open standard. The DMR solution meets all the requirements for delivering data transport functionality, GPS location monitoring, text messaging, workflow applications and basic telemetry. Due to the nature of its 4FSK modulation, DMR terminal equipment also can operate in analogue mode, easing migration and providing interoperability. Altron Nexus Solutions have deployed numerous DMR solutions to many satisfied clients.
The European derived technology of GSM-R has been widely utilised for Rail Mission Critical network communication since the first systems became available. A derivative of basic GSM, GSM-R includes enhancements considered imperative for guaranteed communication delivery, amongst other features.
As a mission-critical user, it is essential for Rail operators that GSM-R solutions migrate to an LTE platform. The LTE platform provides higher bandwidth capacity and the benefit of a more widely utilised open standard. OEM’s of GSM-R has recognised the need for this migration capability and are aligning their offerings to meet this need. Altron Nexus Distributors has experience in the deployment of GSM-R and a shared vision for future migration to LTE.
From basic analogue radio transported telemetry since the 1970’s – to current modern generation PLC based RTU solutions – Altron Nexus Solutions maintain the knowledge, skills, product and capability to engineer, install and support fixed remote monitoring and control data solutions.
We offer the flexibility of integration into most commercially available SCADA software packages, including the highly popular local Adroit package. Our SCADA solutions provide a powerful ‘over the air’ protocol that can withstand the hazards presented by RF interference while being transport medium agnostic. We can implement on a wide range of backhaul media, including analogue and digital radio, microwave, GSM/3G/LTE, leased line, dial-up, fixed wireline and fibre. Our systems are in a wide range of market verticals, including electricity and water distribution, communication network monitoring, and the oil and gas industry.
