12 Percent Growth in TETRA Terminals Shipped in 2012 over 2011 (4/17/13)
Wednesday, April 17, 2013 | Comments

2012 was the third consecutive year for record shipments by manufacturers of TETRA equipment, according to data released by IMS Research, now part of IHS. The technology is being deployed in more regions and vertical markets than ever before.

“Our study shows growth of more than 12 percent in the number of terminals shipped in 2012 compared to 2011,” said Deryn Evans, senior mobile radio market analyst at IMS Research. “The European public-safety and security market remains the backbone of the TETRA market; however we are seeing increasing success for TETRA in a number of user areas and regions that are not traditional strongholds of the technology.

“TETRA is diversifying its customer base to users considered more in the business-critical model rather than mission critical. The success of TETRA ATEX is of particular note, as it becomes the technology of choice for intrinsically safe operations.”

Critical Communications World is the TETRA industry’s flagship annual event and will be held in Paris 21 – 24 May. Now in its 15th year, the event has been expanded to enable exponents of all critical communications technologies. Specifically, the conference will examine how Long Term Evolution (LTE) can be combined with TETRA to ensure increased bandwidth capability while maintaining unsurpassed resilience, security and availability.

“The established leader throughout the world, there are still new markets opening up,” said Phil Kidner, CEO of the TETRA + Critical Communications Association (TCCA). “These include North America, where we are seeing TETRA being adopted for the first time in the utilities and public transport sectors.”
