Tetra World Congress 2012 in Dubai
Funkwerk presents TETRA and personal security portfolio
Salzgitter, April 2012 – The TETRA World Congress, one of the most significant events in the field of professional communication, takes place in Dubai from the 14th to the 17th of May this year. Experts in the TETRA community are gathering for an intensive exchange of opinions and ideas regarding the future of secure communication.
Funkwerk Security once again has a presence at the event, with not only the latest funkwerk FT4 series radios but also the funkwerk TSS TETRA Secury System on display at stand E504. The funkwerk TSS offers unique personal security with one-hundred percent protection in accordance with BGR 139, as well as area- and floor-specific localisation for persons in need of assistance – even within buildings.
In a world exclusive, Funkwerk is presenting the intrinsically safe FT4 S Ex handset, which is immediately available in the 410-470 MHz frequency band and which is also certified to the highest European ATEX and the international IECEx directives, allowing safe operation in hazardous (gas and dust) environments.
The release of the funkwerk FT4 S Ex means that for the first time ever a TETRA handset is available that, thanks to the specific nature of the special functions and sensors integrated into the radios, combines the highest levels of explosion-proofing and personal security functionality in a single device.
"Today our clients expect flexible and reliable security and communications solutions," comments Funkwerk product manager, Thorsten Flügge. "Funkwerk has at its disposal in-depth know-how and diverse experience, allowing us to satisfy all these client requirements. With more than 40 years’ experience, we are leaders in the field of personal emergency signal (PES) systems for industry, the healthcare sector and public authorities. We are pleased to be able to demonstrate this to our guests at the TETRA World Congress."
