Damm Cellular Systems has formed an alliance with Tait Communications to provide Tait DMR radio terminals with its radio infrastructure equipment. The Danish equipment manufacturer produces professional mobile radio (PMR) infrastructure, and is best known for its TETRA base stations, but it has never produced radio terminal.
The new agreement will change that as Damm will be able to supply Tait DMR radio terminals which can be deployed with Damm systems. This will enable Damm to become a full radio solutions provider within the critical radio and broadband communications sector. The strategic alliance is also seen as a way for the two firms to extend their global market reach.
Kjeld Pharao, CEO at DAMM, stated: “We see the high performance Tait DMR radios as an ideal match for our new cross technology platform offering DMR, TETRA and TEDS in one integrated system.
“Combining the intelligent Damm infrastructure and Tait DMR Terminals will provide a one-stop-shop for our system partners. End-customers opting for the trunked DMR Tier III solution from Damm, will benefit from the expertise and innovative solutions of two state-of-the-art communication providers.”
Built on the heritage of Damm as a leading TETRA infrastructure supplier, the company said in a statement today (20 May 2016) that the alliance “will lead the way to help customers benefit from the world’s first, only truly universal DMR base station – mountable indoor and outdoor”.
Craig Clapper, Global President, Solutions and Business Development at Tait Communications, said: “We are pleased to be working with Damm. As we move into a world where seamless interoperability between LMR, cellular and broadband communications is crucial, partnerships are vital for offering customers full solutions that meet their current and future communications needs.”
