Croatian Utility Selects Motorola TETRA Network
Thursday, October 25, 2018 | Comments

Croatian energy company HEP selected Motorola Solutions to provide a TETRA system in collaboration with its local partner Micro-Link. The national distribution network company HEP-Operator Distribucijskog Sustava (HEP-OSD) is the largest customer of the TETRA network in Croatia.

The 15-year-old and outdated TETRA infrastructure of the former provider was replaced without interruptions to mission-critical communications. To guarantee a seamless migration to the new system, which is operating on another frequency band, an interconnection between the old and the new TETRA system was developed by the team from Motorola Solutions and Micro-Link.

To guarantee 24/7 operation of the TETRA system, the delivery includes a service contract that provides HEP-ODS users with access to technical support teams as well as resources for troubleshooting and maintenance.

The new network is composed of 19 sites equipped with TETRA base stations, geographically covering about one-quarter of the Croatian territory. The system provides group and individual push-to-talk (PTT) services, as well as messaging for enhanced collaboration, dynamic team management for coordinated incident response, location tracking and voice recording. Another key feature is the packed data functionality, essential for the energy provider’s supervisory control and data acquisition system (SCADA) communication.

“We always strive to provide our customers with the highest quality of service at any time,” said Ivan Periša, director of the power system control sector at HEP. “The new TETRA system from Motorola Solutions meets our high demands for 24/7 service. It enables us to guarantee outage-proof, mission-critical communications for our customers and benefit from advanced capabilities in the future.”
