- EADS Defence & Security introduces the world’s first Fortecor TEDS radio with Ethernet connectivity
- Dedicated for high speed mission critical data
18th May 2010 – EADS Defence and Security today introduces the first TEDS data radio in the world. The compact and versatile radio brings unparalleled connectivity and data speed to mission critical communication.
Designed for vehicle, office or integrated use, the compact TEDS data radio provides unprecedented possibilities for integration and connectivity. These include the first ever direct IP (Internet Protocol) connectivity via Ethernet as well as via standard USB. For traditional use also input and output lines as well as serial port connections are available. Never before has it been so easy to connect a vehicle computer or an IP camera directly with a TETRA radio, or to build an integrated remote control and monitoring system using the USB connection on the new radio.
Now, a rescue operation’s leader can for example receive floor plans or real time video from the target destination on his mobile computer in the field commander car. The new radio with integrated GPS enables high speed location based services such as transmission of maps with real-time updated position information for enhanced situational awareness.
“I’m proud of this major achievement: delivering our promise and bringing the world’s first TEDS radio available to the market, a radio that transforms TETRA to a mission critical data service. It is a result of the close dialogue with our customers and commitment of our teams to develop leading edge products that enable our customers – the public safety operatives – to perform their duties more securely and efficiently” says Dirk Borkchardt, Head of Security & Communication Solutions at EADS Defence & Security and continues “this is yet another step on the path in providing Full-circle Security solutions to our customers”.
First TEDS data radios have already been delivered to the VIRVE TEDS trial in Finland. Further deliveries are aligned with the deliveries of the Fortecor TEDS system software. The new TEDS data radio will be demonstrated on the TETRA World Congress, Singapore, 25-27th May.
