1 MARKET POSITIONING OF TETRA Andrea FestelliMarconi Mobile
2 AgendaTETRA and public cellular systemsComparison with other PMR technologiesTETRA marketState-of-the-art technologyThe future
3 Frequently Asked Questions Why do I need TETRA instead of public cellular networks (GSM, GSM-R, UMTS)?Why do you say that TETRA is the winning PMR technology?Is TETRA a mature technology?Which are the relations between TETRA and UMTS?????
5 Group communicationsPoint-to-multipoint voice and data including many supporting features such asUnlimited number of included usersUnlimited site extensionDynamic Group Number Assignment (DGNA)Late entryTalking party identification...

15 TETRA is a real open standard TErrestrial Trunked RAdio (TETRA) is an open standard which is defined by the ETSI to meet the needs of the most demanding professional mobile radio users.It has been fully accepted by all the European and many other Administrations.ETSI has started the work program for TETRA release 2
16 Interoperability certification The Interoperability Certificate (IOP) assures that various manufacturers infrastructure and terminals can indistinctly operate on any TETRA networkThe various functionality tested and approved are summarized in public tablesTests are executed by an independent accredited test house: up to now Teledanmark (Danish operator)
17 TETRA and APCO 25Project 25 is a Digital Radio Project that involves both APCO and TIA members, in ANSI/TIA StandardisationProject 25Phase 1 is 12.5kHz FDMAPhase 2 has FDMA (6.25 kHz) and TDMA (12.5 and 25 kHz) componentsTETRA has been selected early in 2000 as TDMA option for the phase 2 (IMBE codec and DES encryption)APCO 25 and TETRA are the only two digital standards for PMR originated from international standardisation institutes that are being deployed across the world

24 Public safety and security services Customer trendsPublic safety and security servicesEUROPE: TETRA is the consolidated open standard technology for PSS radio mobile systems. Almost all European Countries are using (or have plans to use) TETRAWORLD WIDE: interest is consistently increasing and first projects are starting in all regionsTransport and utilities (Civil Users)Projects in this segment partially suffered the spectrum issues for civil TETRA in the past but the solution to these problems is on the way
25 TETRA growth outside Europe: China On April 2001 TETRA has been adopted as national standard by Chinese administration. Most of the allocated radio channels are in the 800MHz frequency bandFirst tenders for TETRA have already been issued and assigned for transport (railways and subway companies) and public safety applicationsTETRA market growth is envisaged for a long duration in China
26 TETRA growth outside Europe: USA TETRA adopted as basis of a 4-slotTDMA system for Project 25 Phase IIMOU proposal includes use of DVSI IMBE codec,DES encryption and Phase I FDMA interoperabilityTR-8 formulating committee (TR-8.14) establishedto develop ANSI/TIA standardTR-8.14 is working on two variants:Standard for Public Safety with changesStandard for Non Public Safety without changes to codec or encryptionShell Standards in draft form, with ongoing work, to complete during 2001North American TETRA Forum set up, providing support from users
