To be able to achieve signal strength of good quality with the numerous different communications and signal systems available, it is important to have the right equipment and extensive knowledge on how it should be handled.

We cover anything from TETRA to 3GPP

We have extensive experience working with emergency services such as with the police, prisons and medical facilities. As well as being involved in creating reliable infrastructures for mobile communication and designed robust and environmentally friendly solutions.

We provide qualitative mobile indoor coverage for FM, TETRA/RAKEL, GPS, 2G, 3G, 4G and 5G. Since the launch of NMT (1G) in 1981 the mobile development has moved forward rapidly with a new mobile generation coming almost every ten years. We have all become accustomed to 4G and nowadays even 5G is becoming the general norm.

FM

FM – radio stations on the FM broadcast band, 88-108 MHz.

TETRA / RAKEL and two-way radio

TETRA (RAKEL), two-way radio – The word TETRA abbreviated from Terrestrial Trunked Radio and is a digital communication radio standard. The concept of “trunked” implicates that several transmitters that share the same resources will only take a small portion of the band system while someone is talking on the phone. That gives more room for the emergency centres’ systems without the communication transmissions taking up too much space.
TETRA is one of the largest secure radio communication networks in the world that is used in collaboration with national communication systems for their management. This was specifically developed for governmental departments and emergency services, which is critical for when standard communications fail. The system must be reliable and provide good coverage, durability, generators and battery backups. MIC Nordic has many years of experience providing story and secure solutions for TETRA-based networks.

Communication radio or Two-Way Radio, is an analog radio transmitter and receiver and the predecessor to digital communication radio. However, aviation, maritime rescue services, truck companies, taxi business, construction companies and the mining industry still use these analog still use these two-way radios.

GPS

GPS, Global Positioning System, abbreviated as GPS, is used in navigation systems to determine the latitude, longitude and altitude of a position. The use for GPS extends further than just positioning to include accurate synchronisation of time references to computers and watches which makes it very useful for mobile technologies.

2G

2G – or GSM is a European telecommunications standard which today covers the vast majority of mobile subscribers around the world. 2G is the second generation mobile communication and was launched in 1991. Unlike the previous analog system all phone calls became digitized and SMS (short message service) was launched as one of the new mobile data services. Together with the launch of 2G the old analogue system was named 1G.

3G

3G – or UMTS, when the third generation mobile phone was launched the transmission speeds became higher. This is as much as 40 times faster than with 2G and with the ability to send and receive moving images and graphics in the mobile phone.  3G is also known by many as “mobile broadband”.
Other standards are also branded 3G; CDMA-450 which is also called Turbo 3G.
This technology is now owned by the company Net1 who offer mobile telephony and broadband use in Scandinavia.

4G

4G – or LTE (Long Term Evolution), is the last step before the introduction of 4G in the European 3G networks. LTE is sometimes referred to as 3.9G. 4G is the fourth generation mobile communications with higher user speeds of data traffic and Internet surfing. With 4G, it is possible to surf up to ten times faster than 3G. The mobile network is completely digitized and totally IP-based.

5G

5G – fifth-generation mobile networks. The name used to describe the next development step. The 5G standard is not currently available but if we are to follow previous mobile network 10-year cycles it will most probably be launched sometime around 2020.

HetNet

HetNet– so-called heterogeneous networks is a term to which Ericsson amongst others uses for the next step of development. HetNet is a combination and interaction of several different networks, such as Wi-Fi and mobile networks. Mobile telephony complemented by other wireless technologies will enhance the coverage and reception even further and makes it possible to use base stations for indoor use.
