Hytera, a leading global provider of innovative Professional Mobile Radio (PMR) communications solutions, obtained the Network Access Permit (NAP) for its flagship Multi-mode Advanced Radio PTC760 to run in the first broadband shared network in Mexico. With the permit, Hytera PTC760 is legitimated to work with all functionalities of the shared network which recently started operations and provides advanced 4G-LTE telecommunications services to at least 92.2% of the Mexican population.
The carrier of Red Compartida carried out a series of tests of functionality and interoperability upon Hytera PTC760 verifying that the radio runs optimally in the public broadband network and achieves smooth communications with cell phones and real-time data transmission as well as geolocation and applications for Control Centers C4/C5.
"We are proud to be the first PMR company to obtain NAP to run our radio products in Mexico’s first nationwide broadband shared network. Obtaining the permit marks an important milestone of putting our multi-mode advance radio products into official commercial use in the market. We are looking forward to helping customers with our latest innovations and technologies," said Nathan Kuang, Deputy General Manager of Hytera Mexico.
Hytera Multi-mode Advanced Radio is a revolutionary hybrid device for mission critical communications incorporating feature-rich broadband technologies while ensuring that critically important voice services remain reliably accessible using narrowband technologies such as TETRA and DMR. The convergence solution will radically improve operational processes of PMR communications by adding greater value to the existing narrowband technologies and brings broadband functionality to PMR users by integrating both technologies into a single, robust, compact handset.
