TETRA World Congress (TWC) in Dubai, 16 May 2012
- Pre-interoperability (IOP) tests between Cassidian TETRA networks and APSI ATP7000 TEDS modems
- Cooperation underlines Cassidian’s commitment to creating an effective and diverse TEDS ecosystem
Cassidian, an EADS company, and the Korean equipment manufacturer Asia Pacific Satellite communications Inc. (APSI) have started pre-interoperability (IOP) tests between TETRA networks from Cassidian and ATP7000 TEDS modems from APSI. The cooperation aims to develop TETRA- and TEDS-enabled modem products that address the critical data transfer needs of a range of industries. Thus, the companies are expanding their existing partnership in developing TETRA terminals to include TEDS technology and data-oriented products for stationary applications, such as smart grids, supervisory control and data acquisition (SCADA) systems and sensor networks.
“The expanded collaboration between Cassidian and APSI underlines Cassidian’s commitment to creating an effective and diverse TEDS ecosystem,” stated Jean-Marc Nasr, Head of Secure Communication Solutions at Cassidian.
“Our cooperation will foster the growth and development of the TEDS market both in Korea and on a global scale. We are proud to continue our long-term partnership with Cassidian and are convinced that the new portfolio will further increase the TETRA technology footprint in the industrial and utility markets as well,” said Ryoo Jang-soo, CEO of APSI.
