Tetra Logo

BL supplies and supports the 2 leading worldwide digital radio solutions – TETRA and APCO P25. Both have their advantages depending upon the requirements of the users.

Terrestrial Trunked Radio (TETRA) is a digital trunked mobile radio standard which was developed by the European Telecommunications Standards Institute. The purpose of the TETRA standard was to meet the needs of traditional Professional Mobile Radio (PMR) user organisations within the public safety, internal security and military markets. As TETRA is an open standard there are a wide range of manufacturers providing infrastructure and terminal products. BL works closely with user organizations and in partnership with some of the worlds leading TETRA manufacturers including Teltronic, Rohill, Team Simoco and Sepura to deliver bespoke solutions to our clients.

As the TETRA user community has grown worldwide so the benefits of this secure digital technology can now be realized by organizations within business and industry, utilities and petro chemical sectors.

BL have been at the forefront of TETRA within the UK and throughout the MEA region in areas as diverse as the Millennium Dome to major internal security users in the Middle East. If you have a requirement for wide area or on site secure voice and data communications please telephone us or e mail us to discuss your requirements.

APCO P25 offers similar benefits to public safety users but covers a wider range of frequency bands and can make the migration from analogue technologies to digital easier and at a lower cost.

BL supplies the APCOProject25 solution from Tait. Including network infrastructure products and terminal equipment.
