Tetra Gateway


The DVI-100 (Digital Voice Interface) will be attached to a TETRA Network in the same way as a normal TETRA hand portable, and it can be a Member of up to five (optional more) groups. When it receives a voice call, rather than decoding the digitally coded ACELP data stream into analog audio and feeding it to the Loudspeaker, it is sent as a digital (UDP) data stream to its IP port. Connecting two DVI-100s back-to-back with each device connected to a different TETRA network (which could be different infrastructure manufacturer, different frequency bands or geographically separated), allows the networks to be “interconnected” based on group calls, status messages, and short data messages. As the voice data stream is not converted back into an analog signal at any time, the voice quality has the same brilliant quality as received with a TETRA hand portable.

Mobile TETRA Hot Spot

TETRA MircoSPOT with DVI-100 in DMO mode

This configuration can be used to create a local TETRA access point (MicoSPOT) which operates in DMO mode. The DVI-100 in DMO mode is connected by an IP connection to another DVI-100 in server mode, which is attached to a TETRA network. All TETRA terminals in DMO mode and in range of the DVI-100 MicroSPOT can access the configured group(s) of the trunked TETRA network by using voice, SDS and status communication. Sample applications for the MicoSPOT can be improving inhouse coverage or covering white spots inside a TETRA network. By using a reliable mobile IP link (3G or LTE) mobile forces can use the TETRA network even in uncovered areas.

TETRA Modem with Speech Function

TMO-100 – The World's First Speaking TETRA Modem

With the new built-in Speech Feature the TMO-100 can be used for automated announcements and alarms. It can voice up to 16 pre-recorded messages and has also implemented constant messages like numbers, days of the week, months, measures and many more. Using the PicoLogo MicroPLC the stored messages can be assembled from different speech segments and even dynamic numbers can be spoken.

The recording of these messages is done using the embedded web browser and a TETRA hand terminal. One simply has to click the “record” button and is then able to speak any (maximum) 15-second message into the terminal. The announcement is then stored without any loss of the high ACELP voice quality.

Of course all SCADA and Telemetry features are also available on that multi featured device. It can be used for a wide range of SCADA and automation applications in water, wastewater utilities, gas and oil applications, airports, public transportation and many more. Embedded serial protocols (Modbus RTU, DNP3, 60870-5-101, Siemens Sinaut, BSAP, ROC, ...) and the embedded IP router with NAT and Port forwarding allowing the use of IP based protocols when using Packet data or Multi Slot Packet data.
