CAT Telecom will provide government agencies, emergency services and other critical enterprises in Thailand with access to the mission-critical radio communications network.

The shared operator system will be based on the modern TETRA standard that provides reliable, flexible and secure communications access to public safety and enterprise organisations across the world. Deployment of the network is well underway. When complete, it will have capacity to serve more than 200,000 users including government departments, oil and gas companies, transportation operators and other critical organisations. 

The system will utilise Motorola Solutions’ broadband enabled push-to-talk platform, enabling seamless communication between radio users and other workers using smartphones, tablets, desktop computers and other devices. It will also provide next-generation capabilities including location services to pinpoint radio users and other resources in the field, providing improved response to large scale events.

Marcel Verdonk, Motorola Solutions General Manager for Emerging Asia
The network will give emergency services and businesses improved coverage and capacity to support their everyday needs as well as having the capacity and resilience to support major events.
