DAMM’s TetraFlex® trusted for largest private Operator Network in Northern
In the northern part of Germany, based near Bremen, the systems company AMV
Funktechnik GmbH is operating a 15 site TETRA digital radio network from
The TetraFlex® professional radio infrastructure system from DAMM provides a
consistent, transparent and controlled communications platform. After full
evaluation of the radio network in terms of overall requirements and
operating conditions, AMV, back in 2006 made the decision to deploy the
TetraFlex® infrastructure in partnership with ATS Elektronik GmbH.
In addition to its excellent price-performance ratio, the decisive factors
in choosing the TetraFlex® system were its ease of installation, extensive
scalability for growing requirements, and easy integration into existing
customer systems, such as telephone and building management systems.
For AMV Funktechnik GmbH, which bears responsibility in this project as a
public network operator, it was particularly important that the “multi
organizational levels” of the system was able to guarantee the clear
separation of different users on the network. Network subscribers have also
made extensive use of the additional data services available. Users include,
for example, municipal utilities that use this feature to securely transfer
data for control and monitoring purposes.
After launching the system in 2006, the radio network was quickly expanded
to include additional radio sites and now covers a large area of northern
Germany, including the regions of Bremen, Bremerhaven, Wilhelmshaven and
Hannover. Today, AMV’s TetraFlex® digital radio network is one of the
largest public and civil Tetra systems in Germany. The total system now
offers a multi-site linked infrastructure that includes a current total of
15 radio sites. Plans for the further expansion of the network via
additional sites are already nearing completion. At present, nearly 3,500
participants from different industries use AMV’s TetraFlex® network. To meet
the needs of all the system’s users, the network currently supports around
900 logical voice channels (digital groups).
Every day, the TetraFlex® network carries around 100.000 conversations and
50,000 data transfers from users in all sorts of areas. Depending on load,
AMV is able to ensure users a scalable and reliable service thanks to the
flexibility of the IP-based TetraFlex® system.
AMV mainly provides users with the radio terminals MTP and MTM from
Motorola. TETRA applications in the areas of telemetry and control station
equipment are provided by cooperation partner and manufacturer ATS
A large number of commercial customers as well as users from the industrial
power sector, port logistics, steel production, gas production and
processing, and major chemical industry customers have trusted this reliable
DAMM TetraFlex® digital wireless network for years, delivered in partnership
with AMV Funktechnik Handels GmbH and ATS Elektronik GmbH.
