Tetra in the Netherlands 15 switches 490 base stations 25+1 command & control rooms Multi-user system +/- 100.000 users
The project is finished A final evaluation report is available in english (digital) Lessons Learned: Keep it simple! Keep it realistic! Who pays for what? Commitment First big multidisciplinary succesful project Cultural differences: C2000 is not a technical project!
Midlife update Implementation software version 6.x Consequences RoHS regulation Discussing implementation of a National Fallback System (NFS)
Crossborder communication 3 country pilot (2004) GOAL: to investigate how far on an operational level (mobile) communication facilities of the TETRA-based technologies are sufficient regarding cross- border cooperation
Inter System Interface (ISI) Connecting the Tetra networks NL / Belgium / Germany Sweden / Norway Western Balkan Almost 20 countries now support the functional requirements for the ISI Time for industry to get the ISI up and running!
Mobile broadband Promissing future Netcentric concept: - All essential information at hand - Different parties and levels involved in relief work share the same real time information
Mobile broadband -Most mobile data information will be mission critical -Dedicated network needed -Several technical solutions are possible -UMTS, CDMA, Wimax etc. -TEDS (Tetra 2) -Bandwidth
Mobile broadband GDI project: Geo Data Infrastructure - standardised infrastructure to share geo information - price winning in 2007 Eagle One: - excercise in sharing geo data during crisis situations - all parties involved shared access to each others information (firefighters, police, medical posts and government - improved shared understanding of the crisis situation
Mobile broadband Harmonising frequencies for public safety and security Like we did for TETRA 380-400Mhz ! Act now: digital dividend
