ETELM, a manufacturer of Mission Critical communications infrastructures, is using this week’s Mission Critical Africa, which is being held at AfricaCom 2017, to discuss how its 4GLinked solution is meeting the growing demand for safe cities across Africa and beyond.
As stated by the firm at the event, its 4GLinked solution has been designed with Mission Critical users in mind, allowing a balance between cost, service, and coverage. It is based on open telecommunications standards using an LTE Core network and provides a single platform for both legacy infrastructure and new and emerging technologies. This kind of interoperability reduces the long-term cost for users, as there is no need for upgrades each time a new standard, or product, comes to market.
Exhibiting at one of the top platforms for critical communications in Africa will enable ETELM to develop further ties in the region and establish new partnerships, as revealed by the firm at the event.
“Africa is an important market for ETELM as we recognise that Critical Communications is at the heart of many industries across the continent,” said Nicolas Hauswald, Sales and Marketing Director, ETELM. “Whether our clients are working within aviation, oil and gas, mining, logistics, security, or transport, the environment can often be changeable. As such, secure, reliable, robust, and interoperable infrastructures capable of withstanding harsh conditions are essential.”
The ETELM solution, as stated by the firm, offers flexibility regardless of location; for instance, the LTE functionality can operate in densely populated areas with high demand for connectivity and bandwidth. Meanwhile, the TETRA/DMR capabilities are ideally suited to rural and remote areas that require fewer services, but place an emphasis on coverage.
“Attending Mission Critical Africa is a fantastic opportunity for ETELM. We look forward to discussing the requirements of safe cities across Africa and invite attendees to stop by our stand to find out how ETELM can help them,” added Hauswald.
Visitors to Mission Critical Africa 2017, which is co-located with AfricaCom, can visit ETELM at stand #28, November 7-9, at the Cape Town International Convention Centre in South Africa.
