Hytera Showcases LTE-DMR Convergent Solution at CCW 2018

Hytera, a world leading solution provider of Professional Mobile Radio communications, showcased its full portfolio of integrated products, systems and applications across its family of communication technology brands, including Sepura, Teltronic, Norsat and Sinclair at Critical Communications World 2018 (CCW 2018) held from May 15 – 17 in Berlin, Germany.

Hytera is looking back on three successful exhibition days in Berlin: Under the title "Innovation – Let’s make the world safer", the global provider of innovative professional land mobile radio (LMR/PMR) communications solutions presented its comprehensive product and solution portfolio at the Critical Communication World and above all presented the latest innovations. Experts from Hytera have also helped to shape the accompanying conference programme with lectures and presentations.

The products and solutions on display demonstrated how Hytera enables its customers to improve connectivity and data analytics in the complex environments they work in, from daily command and control, to emergency response, disaster relief, and anti-terrorism. The Group's experienced teams are proud to have supported government agencies and commercial organisations around the world at a time when they are facing increasingly complex and demanding communications situations. Hytera's solutions have helped them to increase their situational awareness, collaboration and response rate.

Highlights included Hytera's newly released LTE-PMR Convergence Solution, the Hytera Multi-Mode Advanced Radio, the new PoC (push-to-talk over cellular) handsets and the iMesh intelligent deployable network. The company also shared its success stories in Public Safety, Emergency Rescue, Mass Transit, Public Utility and Commercial Business, demonstrating how it provides communication problem solving across multiple technologies and standards. 

  • Narrowband Radios & Trunking: Hytera's comprehensive DMR and TETRA radios and solutions were showcased here. These included Sepura radios and the new outdoor TETRA base station DIB-R5 outdoor developed by Hytera Mobilfunk. During the show, Sepura has unveiled AppSPACE, an innovative applications environment for critical communications.

  • Smart Radios & System: The Hytera convergent solution integrates narrowband and broadband networks to provide unified voice, data and image transmission through multi-mode terminals, bodycams and supporting applications.

    The multimode radios, which combine narrowband TETRA and broadband services in one device, once again attracted particular attention. Aligned with one of the mains topics discussed in the forum, Teltronic presented Hytera TETRA + LTE convergent solution, which allows, from a simple evolution from narrowband models, providing broadband capabilities to the communications infrastructure.

    One of the main novelties was P-PoC, the Hytera solution for mission critical multimedia services according to 3GPP standards MC-PTT, MC-Data and MC-Video.

    PTTconnect, the Push-To-Talk app for smartphones based on TETRA technology, also attracted a lot of attention. It is a PTT-over-Cellular (PoC) solution to turn your smartphone into a professional radio-like communication device.

  • Integrated Command & Control: Integrating multiple communication modes and data streams with the Hytera Integrated Command & Control (ICC) system.

  • Emergency Response Solutions: Especially in the field of solutions for emergency communication Hytera had a lot of new things to present.  With Hytera iMesh and the Hytera E-Pack 100, communication networks can be quickly installed in emergency situations in order to offer the best communication to the emergency forces on site in any situation. Norsat GLOBETrekker portable satellite provides rapidly deployable temporary communication systems with voice dispatch and video capture.

  • Sinclair Antenna Technologies and fjord-e-design measurement technology: Rugged and reliant antennas, filters and RF conditioning solutions for mission critical applications were showcased at the CCW as well. In addition, Hytera's visitors were able to see for themselves the capabilities of the RF AirAnalyzer, which helps TETRA operators to monitor the air interface.

  • Solutions for the transport sector: Includes both infrastructure and onboard equipment, as well as control centers specifically designed to this kind of environments. A fully equipped demo allowed visitors to discover how are the communications among train driver, control center and passengers, offering a reliable solution to manage voice and data, and even video thanks to LTE technology.

  • Cybersecurity licenses and services designed to protect critical infrastructures: Teltronic extends its expertise to cyber security sphere in order to mitigate the ever-increasing cyber threats, avoiding breaches that could hamper critical infrastructures and, consequently, the overall safety of all citizens.

During the exhibition, we got plenty of testimonials from visitors:

“Hytera's booth shows so many new products and solutions. That's very impressive.”

“My visit to Hytera here in Berlin opened my eyes. The wide range of innovations has convinced me very much that Hytera plays a very important role in the PMR market.”

“I came to the CCW in Berlin especially for the multimode radio, which I saw last year at the PMRExpo in Cologne.”
