When businesses, from utilities to railway operators, grow and need to expand the physical area they cover, such an expansion would also necessitate an extension of any existing TETRA radio communication network to ensure adequate coverage and communication functionalities.
To save on costs, they may consider other more cost-efficient suppliers for the extension. However, extending the network requires making adaptations to the existing network, and the only way to get this is through the existing supplier.
With the Network Bridge, such adaptations are not necessary as it enables seamless integration of a DAMM TetraFlex® network into an existing TETRA system, facilitating smooth network bridging.
The Network Bridge allows users to move between the existing TETRA network and the expansion provided by DAMM – in fact for the users it feels like one network that is offering the same kind of services as always.
It supports the following communication features between the existing network and the expansion provided by DAMM:
- Group calls and SDS messages
- Individual calls and SDS messages
- Free roaming between the networks
