Recently, the European Telecommunication Standard Institute (ETSI) began researching the security features of the next generation TETRA standard.

According to market data from IHS Markit, the market for TETRA standard equipment continues to grow, with an annual growth rate of more than 6% from 2017 to 2022.

Recently, in addition to expanding the Airwave TETRA standard service in the UK and the world's largest TETRA network - Germany Die Bundesanstalt für den Digitalfunk der Behörden und Organisationen mit Sicherheitsaufgaben (BDBOS) network update, TETRA system is still in Australia, Bahrain, Brazil, China, India , Indonesia, Moldova, Portugal, Romania and Sweden and other countries and regions deployed.

TETRA standard is sufficiently secure to prevent eavesdropping and unauthorized access to the TETRA network. It is expected that TETRA will continue to provide critical communication services for many years to come. ETSI further enhances TETRA security, continuous technology development, protects the network, and provides users with more reliable communication guarantees.


TETRA standard is a unified and open standard designed and developed by ETSI to meet the needs of professional users for mobile communications. ETSI has been continuously improving the TETRA standard and now has more than 180 technical specifications and reports, with more than 300 dedicated features and functions.


TETRA standard allows users to operate in challenging environments or in hazardous conditions. Reliable communication is essential. Users must have secure, immediate, ubiquitous, redundant and reliable communications, and as such, they continue to trust the TETRA standard.


Brian Murgatroyd, Chairman of ETSI TETRA and Critical Communications Evolution, said: "With more than 25 years of development, the TETRA standard remains an excellent choice for critical communications services."
