TETRA Terminal Numbers Hit High Mark in 2011 (4/16/12)
Monday, April 16, 2012 | Comments

The TETRA market had its most successful year to date in 2011 in terms of the number of terminals shipped. With growth of more than 9 percent compared with the terminals shipped in 2010, the latest data from IMS Research suggests that the TETRA market is experiencing a return to almost pre-recession growth levels.

However, although growth is projected for the next five years, 2011 may be a high in terms of the level of growth. The European public-safety and security market remains the backbone of the TETRA market; however, 2011 saw some significant developments in regions outside Europe including the Middle East, Africa, South America and Australasia.

“We are seeing more success for TETRA in regions traditionally not necessarily considered strongholds of the technology,” said Deryn Evans, mobile radio market analyst at IMS Research. “The success TETRA has had in the European arena is now being emulated in other markets, where new devices that offer enhanced capabilities including ATEX, covert and TETRA Enhanced Data Services (TEDS) are now gaining traction in the public-safety and security markets.”

The technology is also seeing considerable success in sectors outside of the public-safety market including the utilities, industrial and transportation markets. A significant LMR analog installed base of more than 80 percent of existing mobile radio users indicates that the potential for growth of TETRA technology remains strong.
