DAMM has partnered with Zetron, a developer of integrated mission-critical communications technology, for the integration of DAMM base stations and Zetron’s ACOM Command & Control systems.

“In addition to our core market similarities, Zetron and DAMM also share some important core business objectives that make the integration a logical fit,” said Ranjan Bhagat, vice-president and general manager, Zetron Australasia. “We have focused for decades on enabling interoperability in mission-critical environments where heterogeneous technology systems and devices are the norm.”

“Radio networks across Australasia are often highly complex given the geographical, economic and technological diversity across the regions,” said Mark Wood, director, DAMM Australia. “Integrating our leading mission-critical platforms will provide tremendous benefits to shared customers of DAMM and Zetron in further simplifying and unifying their communications requirements.”

The new integration enables ACOM Command & Control customers to seamlessly interoperate with TetraFlex Systems, as well as DAMM’s MultiTech BS422 base station, which features TETRA, DMR Tier III, TEDS and analogue technologies in one core-connected system, expanding the mission-critical communications networks of organisations using both companies’ technologies.

DAMM TetraFlex® solutions are deployed globally and currently make up more than 80% of the TETRA infrastructure in Australia.

Zetron and DAMM serve similar mission-critical communications markets in transportation, utilities, public safety and natural resources across Australasia. In Australia, ACOM Command & Control is used to manage communications at thousands of control room operator positions, while DAMM serves over 150 large-scale projects, with 2,000 TETRA nodes and 8,000 digital channels deployed across the country.
