European Police Organization Consolidates Emergency Communications System on TETRA Network

The National Police serves the entire 5.4 million inhabitants of Denmark, and the organization includes the SINE Agency, which is responsible for migrating the country’s emergency communications to a single, nationwide TETRA network. Using the latest revolution in digital communications technologies, the SINE Agency has implemented a ground-breaking solution to unify and fortify its emergency communications over the TETRA network using cellular and advanced remote management to provide the highest quality of public safety to its constituency.

To ensure the success of its rollout and eliminate any potential frustration for the system’s law enforcement users, the National Police’s SINE Agency determined the need to measure the performance and coverage of the TETRA network in every corner of Denmark. To accurately measure the pioneering PMR standard, the agency needed an equally advanced method to acquire and assess signal availability.

Daimler Mobile Partner, a Sierra Wireless systems integration partner, worked with the SINE Agency to test different USB modems and “plastic” routers before selecting the unmatched reliability provided by the Sierra Wireless AirLink® Gateway.
