Motorola Solutions is upgrading the analog radio network of Thailand’s CAT Telecom Public Company to a TETRA digital network to optimize its spectrum use. The company is working with its local partner Samart Telcoms Public Co. to execute the project.

The upgraded TETRA multisite network would be the first commercial network in Thailand based on an operator model whereby enterprise and government users will be able to subscribe to the digital trunked radio network from CAT Telecom without having to invest in their own digital radio communications infrastructure.

The upgrade will be carried out in phases, starting with the introduction of a few thousand TETRA subscriber radios and base stations and a switching center to build a digital network covering the Bangkok metropolitan area and the eastern seaboard industrial hub. The target users of this network include oil and gas and transportation customers, as well as other critical government and enterprise users.

CAT Telecom was the first to operate an analog subscriber radio network in Thailand for the use of multiple government agencies and enterprises, and the new network will support future data services and needs through TETRA Enhanced Data Service (TEDS).
