Bad Münder, Germany, May 2013 – Hytera Mobilfunk, a leading global supplier of products and solutions for professional mobile radio (PMR) has hired next-generation consulting firm, Quixoticity’s Managing Director, Peter Clemons, to take charge of its TETRA business in both North and Latin America. Recent data from IMS Research clearly shows that TETRA sales continue to grow world-wide, as new markets are opened up to the ETSI standard and more industry segments recognize the benefits of secure, reliable, feature-rich TETRA technology for their critical communications needs. This is particularly the case in Latin America, where emerging economies are deploying TETRA to satisfy the most stringent security requirements. Following recent regulatory changes in USA and Canada, North America is also now open for TETRA business and is expected to be the fastest growing TETRA market over the next 3-5 years and beyond. As it expands its global operations to take advantage of this increased demand for advanced solutions, Hytera Mobilfunk continues to attract the most talented and experienced staff to achieve its ambitious targets for the future. Peter Clemons has been involved in the TETRA industry since 1996, is well known across both North and Latin America where he has driven the deployment of TETRA solutions since 1998 and has also represented the TETRA + Critical Communications Association as Director and Board Member. “We are delighted to welcome Peter on board at Hytera Mobilfunk. We believe that there is unlimited potential for TETRA in the Americas and we have set ourselves ambitious goals which Peter will help us to achieve,” states Matthias Klausing, CEO and President, Hytera Mobilfunk GmbH. “TETRA continues to evolve to satisfy the needs of the global critical communications community. Although it started out many years ago as a European standard, it is now a truly global phenomenon and continues to find new markets and new industries due to its unique feature set. Customers across the Americas are crying out for a solution such as TETRA. Hytera Mobilfunk will listen carefully to these customers and give them the very best. This listening process starts today,” explains Peter Clemons.
A smart choice for organisations looking for secure communications on a scale that can match their evolving needs more closely Claricor 3 includes compact equipment such as the DXT3p switch and the TB3p base station Advanced functions including data services, applications and dispatcher functionalities Critical Communications World (CCW), Paris, 21 May 2013 – Cassidian has introduced a new version of its professional radio system solution for small to medium-sized networks, called Claricor. Made for up to 5,000 users, it offers a cost-effective set-up for providing both outdoor and indoor coverage across sites such as airports, factories or power plants but also larger areas such as cities. If needed, a Claricor network can be interconnected with multiple switches to cover a nation wide area.The new Claricor 3 version includes high-speed data (TEDS) and provides more than enough bandwidth for data in Smart Grid or SCADA applications. At the heart of the Claricor 3 system is the IP-connected DXT3p switch from Cassidian. The DXT3p is an all-in-one package with high capacity; great functionality for IP based networks. Its lower power consumption (around 150W) makes it an eco-friendly option, too. Claricor can be easily expanded from a small group of users served by a single site to a fully-fledged network addressing the needs of a few thousand subscribers. “Our customers can start with a small system that will grow with them, which makes Claricor 3 a perfect future-proof choice. In other words, Claricor 3 brings smart, safe and secure communications within the reach of more organisations than ever,” said Olivier Koczan, Head of Sales within Secure Communication Solutions, Cassidian. Claricor 3 offers all the advanced functions of larger networks, including secure voice and data services, individual calls, group calls, TEDS and dispatcher functionalities. In addition, the comprehensive set of functions available with Claricor 3 is field-proven and delivers business-critical reliability implemented in nationwide networks now also to smaller scale networks
