Cassidian’s TH1n terminal has won the International TETRA Awards for ‘Best TETRA Enterprise Product’. The ceremony took place at the London Transport Museum in Covent Garden on 21 March.
In this category, the judges were looking for products that best use the capabilities that TETRA has to offer. Five products from companies were shortlisted in this category.
“We are delighted to have received this award, which is the ultimate recognition of the excellence of our products,” said Jean-Marc Nasr, Head of Secure Communication Solutions at Cassidian. “This win manifests the fact that Cassidian is widely respected for the performance of its products.”
Pierre Lopez, Head of Terminals & Indirect Channels Business Management at Cassidian, said: “Our TH1n terminal is the first in a completely new class of pocket-sized TETRA radios. It has generated lots of customer interest from the Public Safety sector and in the industry all over the world and has already been delivered to a number of customers since we launched it last year in Dubai. It was used for the first time by security staff during the Munich Security Conference in February. It is the smallest and lightest TETRA radio device in the world, which makes the TH1n particularly suited to covert use.”
The new form allows the TH1n to be carried in new ways. Small enough to be slipped into a pocket clip holder, a shoulder holster or a carry case with a neck strap, it can also be carried in belt and lapel-mounted holsters. This makes it suitable it is claimed for many users, including those who have found it difficult to find a radio of the right size and weight to fit their needs, those who wear business clothing or light uniforms rather than weatherproof gear, and those who need to be discrete in their operational missions.
The annual International TETRA Awards – a collaboration between TETRA Today magazine and the TETRA + Critical Communications Association (TCCA) – were established to mark the achievements of TETRA manufacturers and users. Split into seven categories, the awards have been designed to recognise excellence in the field of TETRA radio communications. The TETRA Awards unveiled a shortlist of entries last December.
