DAMM Australia and Zetron partner to integrate mission critical communication systems
Zetron, a global leader in integrated mission critical communications technology, has partnered with DAMM for integration between its ACOM Command & Control system and DAMM base stations. DAMM TetraFlex® solutions are deployed across multiple countries globally and currently make up more than 80% of the TETRA infrastructure in Australia.
The new integration enables ACOM Command & Control customers to seamlessly interoperate with TetraFlex® Systems, as well as DAMM’s MultiTech BS422 base station, which features TETRA, DMR Tier III, TEDS and Analog technologies in one core-connected system, expanding the mission critical communications networks of organizations using both companies’ technologies.
“In addition to our core market similarities, Zetron and DAMM also share some important core business objectives that make the integration a logical fit,” said Ranjan Bhagat, Vice President and General Manager, Zetron Australasia. “We have focused for decades on enabling interoperability in mission critical environments where heterogeneous technology systems and devices are the norm.”
Zetron and DAMM serve similar mission critical communications markets in transportation, utilities, public safety and natural resources across Australasia. In Australia, ACOM Command & Control is used to manage communications at thousands of control room operator positions, while DAMM serves over 150 large-scale projects, with 2,000 TETRA nodes and 8,000 digital channels deployed across the country.
“Radio networks across Australasia are often highly complex given the geographical, economic and technological diversity across the regions,” said Mark Wood, Director, DAMM Australia. “Integrating our leading mission critical platforms will provide tremendous benefits to shared customers of DAMM and Zetron in further simplifying and unifying their communications requirements.”
