Nebula evolves [ID14D1]

05 November 2014

Teltronic (Hall A, Stand A173) has been involved in a long process to develop its own long-term evolution independently of other companies, thus enabling it to offer evolved Nebula as its next generation infrastructure for mission-critical users.

This development is based on the company’s successful Nebula Tetra architecture widely used worldwide, with eNebula incorporating longterm evolution (LTE ) technology in its design to complement narrowband capabilities.

The core equipment of the new infrastructure provides Tetra and LTE services in a single network design. Indeed, evolved Nebula, Tetra and LTE share the same core equipment based on the latest and most powerful hardware components and operating systems. By sharing hardware and operating systems, cost-effectiveness is a major benefit to be gained by existing Nebula networks that acquire evolved Nebula. Moreover, a unified network management system can result from such sharing.

A wide range of base station types is covered by Teltronic’s Tetra, LTE and eNebula infrastructure, including indoor, outdoor, mast-mounted and air-conditioned racks. The company has now added two more base station types: the Portable Base Station (PBS), a wheeled unit that can be easily carried by a single person; and the Deployable Base Station (DBS), which can be carried by four men and can be installed quickly to increase network capacity in an emergency.

Teltronic has been selected to supply a Tetra system to completely cover Brazil’s Rio de Janeiro state in time to provide all emergency and public safety agencies with communication services for the 2016 Olympics.
