What is TETRA?

Terrestrial Trunked Radio (TETRA) is a European standard for a trunked radio system, a professional mobile radio and two-way transceiver specification. It was originally designed for government agencies, emergency services, the military and transport industries – all sectors for whom reliability, security and clarity of communications are absolutely essential.

Simoco deployed a fully integrated communications network; supplying a range of portable radios and mobile and marine radios for use in an office environment and in vehicles and vessels. Also assisting with the infrastructure of the project, Simoco delivered 22 radio frequency base sites to enable communication across multiple sites.

The integrated TETRA communication system has been utilised by the construction staff and ultimately this will extend to over 3000 employees, once the project meets the scheduled completion date of 2014.
