Motorola Solutions is set to upgrade the analogue radio network of CAT Telecom Public Company Ltd to a Terrestrial Trunked Radio (TETRA) digital network and optimise its spectrum usage. The company has teamed up with Samart Telcoms Public Co. Ltd to execute this project. According to them, the upgraded TETRA multi-site network would be the first of its kind commercial network in Thailand based on an operator model.

The upgrade will be carried out in phases, starting with the introduction of few thousands of TETRA subscriber radios and base stations and a switching centre to build a digital network covering Bangkok Metropolitan Area and the Eastern Sea Board industrial hub. The target user of this network would include oil and gas sector, transportation operators and other critical government and enterprise users for whom robust mission-critical grade communication is a must.

The digital network draws on Motorola Solutions' longstanding heritage in mission-critical communication technology. It employs industry-standard Time-Division Multiple-Access (TDMA) technology to deliver audio clarity, extended range, integrated data applications, high level of security and data applications such as text messaging, location tracking and dispatch capability in a cost-effective way for enterprises across vast geographic coverage.
