Airbus Launches Pioneer Hybrid Base Station for Tetra and LTE
Airbus, a global leader in aeronautics has launched its new TB4 base station for the first time in the Middle East North Africa (MENA) region. Being the latest innovation in the evolution of Tetra towards 4G/5G technology, TB4 is the first hybrid base station that supports both Tetra and 4G/5G technology on the same hardware platform, which is owned by the Professional Communication Corporation – Nedaa, Dubai’s Government security networks provider, the first customers for this solution.
The new Tetra base station has all the same powerful features as the popular Tetra TB3 base station and more. The features include dual homing, air-interface encryption, and base station fallback. Also, a type 1 handover, and base station fallback, that provides advanced security capabilities.
TB4 also offers very latest technology from cellular network solutions, such as integration of multicarrier remote radios. It plays a key role in Airbus’ ecosystem approach, which is based on Nokia’s AirScale base station platform and helps its customers to benefit from a long Tetra life cycle and a smooth evolution toward wireless broadband.
Customers using TB3 conserve the same antenna configurations for use with the TB4 which will enable a smooth transition towards 4G/5G networks with huge cost savings in network planning and implementation. The state-of-the-art is made available for a 380 MHz frequency and is implemented according to the Airbus hybrid strategy, thus ensuring a smooth technological evolution for the customers.
