Hytera signs a 15,000 TETRA radio agreement with operator Entropia Digital

Entropia Digital, which operates a TETRA two-way radio service in Belgium and The Netherlands, signed a deal to buy 15,000 TETRA radios from Hytera last month (November 2013).

The radios will be offered on the Entropia TETRA network based on a managed service model. Entropia’s business model is to offer customers tailored communications services without them having to worry about network infrastructure or radios. Its dealers find the customers and lease them radios supplied by Entropia.

 Entropia offers two service models:

25 euro per month:

  • Local TETRA network service
  • Mobile or portable radio with battery, charger, stubby antenna, maintenance, including swap warranty.

35 euro per month:

  • Wide area TETRA network coverage in Flanders and The Netherlands
  • Mobile or portable radio with battery, charger, stubby antenna, maintenance, including swap warranty.

Entropia said in a statement: "Customers don’t need to buy a radio anymore, 25 or 35 euro per month with a contract of 12 months, including radio and TETRA coverage; how simple life can be?!" 

Entropia Digital caused a stir in the world of two-way radios by inviting manufacturers such as Hytera, Motorola Solutions, Cassidian and others to bid for the radio supply contract via Twitter.

The first batch of 1,000 radios for new and existing customers will be supplied before Christmas 2013. From end of June 2014, Entropia will offer more than 60,000 km2 TETRA network coverage in Flanders and The Netherlands.
