|Nødnett have added extra IFPM units to their TETRA network test and measurement equipment. The equipment is currently being used by Motorola to increase TETRA coverage in Norway’s remotest areas. Norway presents many geological challenges in its quest to have full TETRA coverage. The latest installation, located at 71 degrees north is Europe’s most northerly TETRA base station.
The TETRA network is in full operation in parts of Norway and a country-wide build out will be completed by the end of 2015. Syntech have worked with Motorola and Nødnett for the past 5 years and IFPM is an integral part of the testing required for the rollout of the TETRA network. In common with the UK, Norway has a very rigorous and comprehensive set of TETRA coverage requirements. We are pleased to be able to support them as coverage is optimised and the system fully rolled out.
