Thailand Deploys Nationwide TETRA Network from Motorola
Wednesday, August 15, 2018 | Comments

Motorola Solutions will connect Thailand’s commercial and government organizations to instant and secure voice communication by deploying a nationwide TETRA communications system. CAT Telecom Public Co., operator of Thailand’s telecommunications infrastructure, will provide Thailand’s government agencies, emergency services and other critical enterprises with access to the mission-critical radio communications network.

Deployment of the scalable, shared operator system is underway. When complete, it will have capacity to serve more than 200,000 users including government departments, oil and gas companies, transportation operators and other critical organizations.

The system will use Motorola Solutions’ broadband-enabled push-to-talk (PTT) platform, enabling communications between radio users and workers using smartphones, tablets, desktop computers and other devices. The network will also provide next-generation capabilities including location services to pinpoint radio users and other resources in the field, providing improved response to large-scale events.

Investment in the communications network comes as Thailand is experiencing its fastest economic growth rate since 2012 and as the World Bank considers raising the country’s economic growth projections for the year, Motorola Solutions said.

Marcel Verdonk, Motorola Solutions general manager for emerging Asia, said the system is designed to support the country’s continued growth and expansion with the flexibility to add large numbers of users over time.

“Any country experiencing significant growth in infrastructure, innovation, education and skills requires an advanced communications system,” Verdonk said. “This TETRA system will support Thailand’s continuing investment in infrastructure modernization as well as job creation through its construction.”
