Challenge

Rio Tinto currently operates some large EDACS and SmartZone networks. They decided recently to switch to the new TETRA standard. With fleets comprising thousands of mobile units, a solution was needed to provide continued communications during the TETRA installation and change over period.

Solution

A number of "plug and play" Smartbridge® TETRA to EDACS Radio Network Interconnect systems were supplied, providing an easily installed and effective migration path, without any real interruptions to any of their fleet operations.

Challenge

Telstra, a large Australian Nation wide MPT1327 network operator, operates a UHF MPT1327 network in and around Perth, WA, supplied at the time by NOKIA, who no longer support the product. As a result, network expansion using traditional methods (building new sites) is no longer possible. Alcoa however, a major Network user, did need extended coverage due to their ever increasing expansion program.

Solution

Several 1+4 channel Cell Extender® have been installed over the past few years, to provide seamless and fully MPT1327 transparent coverage in the required coverage extension areas.

Result

Cell Extender® is providing a readily installed solution to a requirement that seemed at first thought impossible to fulfil.
