To date the National Digital Radio System (TETRA) has been agreed as a replacement for existing systems and the implementation of a new common national platform for Radio voice, data and mobilisation communications system is imminent. In order to ensure that configurations for users and terminals are to a common national standard, all Fire Service Mobile appliance terminals, hand portables, base radios etc. will look and operate in the same way and be consistent across the service.
Ctri have now established a Task and Finish Group representing a wide cross section of Fire Service Personnel who are interested parties or Service Users. This Group has been tasked with the evaluation and selection of hardware for mobile radios, hand portable radios and base radios.
The expected outcome of this group will be a report on proposed recommendations for the selection of Tetra Hardware for Mobile radios, hand portable radios and base radios in conjunction with Tetra Ireland based on our outlined configuration requirements.
