Today, CLP Power’s TETRA network plays an important role in supporting the company as one of the most reliable electricity services in the world with 99.999% reliability. The TETRA network not only offers instant and seamless voice communication for field staff at remote locations and tough environments, it also provides secure narrowband data connectivity for remote control and monitoring of rural 11kV distribution overhead power circuits.

Integrated solutions from in-house development were introduced to fully utilise the network’s capacity, enabling a diversity of applications in the power system operations, such as Geographic Position Locating System, Automatic Fault Location System and Advanced Metering Infrastructure of Smart Grid. As the business is being driven by digital transformation with digital mobile workforce, CLP Power’s TETRA network is undergoing continual enhancement and ready to integrate with LTE to support next generation network operations tomorrow with broadband data, voice, video capabilities and wider radio coverage.
