1. TELTRONIC partners with Malaysia’s Sapura Secured Technologies to develop the critical communications solutions of the future
Following the recent signing of a comprehensive framework agreement, Teltronic will work together with Malaysia’s Sapura Secured Technologies to build the largest TETRA network outside Europe and develop innovative next-generation solutions
The Malaysian firm Sapura Secured Technologies has awarded Teltronic a contract to supply a wide-area TETRA network which will provide coverage to the Kuala Lumpur region and other territories across Malaysia. The initial network design includes 112 site base stations and redundant switching control nodes. In addition, Teltronic will supply three inter-system nodes to provide seamless communications with the existing nationwide TETRA network managed by Sapura. The project, which incorporates the highest level of mission-critical requirements and service availability, is expected to be completed by the end of 2012.
Besides the TETRA network supply contract, Sapura and Teltronic have agreed to collaborate in the field of specialized mission-critical LTE solutions via a long-term joint development program. The 3GPP LTE (Long Term Evolution) standard is emerging as the preferred technology for future, high-speed mobile broadband services.
Sapura and Teltronic have also undertaken a joint initiative to set up a local TETRA Center of Competence in Malaysia for the benefit of existing and future users of Teltronic equipment across the Asia-Pacific region. In turn, a commercial cooperation framework has also been agreed upon which will result in a closer integration of Teltronic and Sapura core technologies to address a wide range of user requirements.
