TETRA Shipments Up 15% in 2017, Pasquali Elected TETRA Group Chair
Wednesday, May 09, 2018 | Comments

Global shipments of TETRA increased by 15 percent in 2017, with strong growth noted across all geographic regions.

The greatest growth market for TETRA in 2017 was in Asia, with deployments increasing by 27 percent during the year. During the next five years, the highest growth is expected to come from the Americas, according to research from IHS Markit.

The largest market remains Europe, which accounts for about half of all TETRA users. Investments are noted across Europe, from the PIT police network in Italy to the creation of a national TETRA network for police forces in Bulgaria. Germany has the largest installed base of TETRA users in the world, accounting for 30 percent of Europe’s TETRA users, and IHS Markit projects a strong TETRA market for Germany to 2030 and beyond.

TCCA’s TETRA Industry Group (TIG) elected Francesco Pasquali from Leonardo chair of the group. Pasquali takes over from Sepura’s Malcolm Quelch who plans to retire.

The TIG gathers the major TETRA manufacturers to promote TETRA, develop the technology and advocate an evolutionary path toward future solutions for the mission critical communications market based on open standards. The group develops expertise on the strengths of TETRA and Long Term Evolution (LTE) as competing, complementary or integrated solutions for this market.

“I am delighted to be taking on the chairmanship of the TIG and will work hard to ensure the group continues as the marketing force it has become under the guidance of Malcolm Quelch,” said Pasquali.

“The market is buoyant for TETRA, with new deployments and operators increasingly using their existing TETRA systems for new data applications to deliver significant improvements in operational efficiency,” Pasquali said. “With the assurance of TETRA being a safe and economic investment, and as dual-mode TETRA/LTE terminals and infrastructure come to market, the standard has a strong and stable future.”
