Hytera develops mesh networking solution
The company has launched its TETRA E-Pack 100 digital wireless ad hoc networking device.
According to the company, the device is battery operated, requiring no infrastructure or cables to set up. It can make and receive calls with other E-Packs/TETRA radios via a palm microphone, as well as acting as a repeater. Once deployed, it “automatically links up with other E-packs to form a self-configuring and dynamic ad hoc wireless mesh network.”
Discussing the solution, a spokesperson for Hytera said: “A typical scenario would be a fire in a high-rise building, where coverage is not available, due to the fire or lack of infrastructure. The firefighters’ E-Packs will seamlessly mesh together, using ad hoc links as they move throughout the building. The E-Packs also support radio links to colleagues outside.
“E-Packs are [also] ideal for search and rescue operations over mountainous terrain, as the 10W output delivers wide area coverage. They can extend above ground coverage by providing a temporary signal extension, and provide reliable communications for field workers, such as [those in] electricity or other utilities, working in remote locations.”
