Boosting network visibility and performance

Motorola Solutions has launched TRACES – the TETRA RF Automated Coverage Evaluation System

TRACES provides TETRA (TErrestrial Trunked RAdio) end-user administrators with the ability to automatically collect, visualise and evaluate data from across their mission-critical TETRA network. For the first time network user administrators can gain access to data on TETRA network performance, irrespective of the network vendor, via their Motorola end-user radios, without making changes to the network or existing operating practices. The TRACES solution empowers end-user administrators to increase the effectiveness of the TETRA network by collecting actual data from calls being made in the field. Additionally, the system reduces the dependency on drive tests to collect data by up to 80 percent which can lead to significant cost savings.

Gary Aitkenhead, vice president, Services, Motorola Solutions, EMEA, said, “TRACES is a very exciting step forward for network user administrators – for the first time putting them in control and giving them visibility of network coverage and performance. The key differentiator is that TRACES enables collection of network data via end-user terminals being used in the field during daily mission-critical activities. Before TRACES, the only way for end-user network administrators to gain such detailed information on a TETRA network was to undertake extensive drive testing, which is time consuming, resource intensive, sporadic and costly. The TRACES system really is a win-win solution and shows the additional value that can be obtained with Motorola radios.”
