Hytera Mobilfunk GmbH takes over German specialist for wireless protocols

Hytera Mobilfunk GmbH boosts its own research and development with the acquisition of fjord-e-design GmbH. On 25 October Hytera Mobilfunk GmbH, a wholly owned subsidiary of Hytera Communications Corporation Ltd., took over fjord-e-design GmbH (FED), a company with headquarters in Flensburg, specialized in wireless protocols. FED contributes longstanding experience in the development of TETRA and TEDS protocol stacks as well as TETRA measurement technology to the company. In addition to the Hytera centre of competence for TETRA in Bad Münder near Hannover, Flensburg now is the second important development location of Hytera Mobilfunk in Germany.

The existing customers of the business fields of protocol stacks and measurement technology will continue to be managed from the Flensburg location, and the sales area for measuring technology in Germany will remain with fjord-e-design-sales.

Dr. Georg Haubs, managing director of Hytera Mobilfunk GmbH, sees multiple synergies for the customers of both companies: „The acquisition of FED is an important step for Hytera Mobilfunk to accelerate the further development of the TETRA portfolio towards TETRA-2 / TEDS as well as LTE. In future we will be able to react to the demands of the market even faster and together we will offer the best and most innovative products, both with regard to infrastructure and with regard to radio terminals.“

Hauke Holm, managing director of FED states: „Our experience with TETRA and TEDS excellently fits Hytera’s competences in the field of system infrastructure technology and radio terminals.“
