Stadtwerke Münster, the public utilities company in Münster, is expanding its TETRA professional mobile radio (PMR) system and is once again relying on solutions provided by Hytera Mobilfunk. The two organisations have began working with each other back in 2004.
The utility is investing in Hytera’s latest TETRA equipment in the shape of its DIB-R5 compact base stations. This will be the first time a complete mobile radio system based on DIB-R5 has been deployed in Germany.
In addition, Hytera is supplying two IP Node (IPN) switching nodes and a network management system (NMS), which will allow the utility to monitor and administer the infrastructure and various services of the TETRA radio system (ACCESSNET-T-IP). The existing DIB-500 R.4.0 type base stations will continue to be used and upgraded to IP-based switching.
Michael Fertig, the regional director responsible for the system business in Germany at Hytera Mobilfunk, said: "I am very pleased about the new order and the continued collaboration. Hytera Mobilfunk is the right partner to address the stringent requirements of Stadtwerke Münster."
As the city’s public utilities company Stadtwerke Münster is an integral part of Münster and the surrounding area. Its main areas of business include the supply of electricity, gas, heat and drinking water, along with energy generation and the operation of the local public transport which carries around 120,000 passengers a day.
