Supplying critical radio communication to oil and gas customers means working with some of the world's most harsh and inaccessible environments, a challenge to which Damm Cellular Systems has consistently risen. Over the past few decades, technology has evolved to meet the higher demands for voice and data communication.
DAMM is a world-leading provider of radio and broadband communication solutions to industrial, commercial and public safety customers. Its products include the rugged, reliable and easily scalable communication system DAMM TetraFlex, which is ideal for the oil and gas industry.
The DAMM decentralised infrastructure means the network design is a 100% IP-based architecture with distributed intelligence. This gives full flexibility in site and capacity expansions, meeting the constantly changing needs of the industry. Each site can stand alone with the full TETRA feature set. DAMM TetraFlex offers integrated solutions with a true IP backbone, and boasts features that are ideal for mission critical communications, such as scalability, redundancy and remote management.
Built-in features and the easy integration of third-party applications means DAMM TetraFlex can be easily customised. For cross-technology communication, TetraFlex Group Bridge enables TETRA radios to call airband analogue radios in one integrated system. Customisation is easily achieved with the open application interface, which allows you to easily add applications to help manage fleets and pools of radios.
As an independent TETRA infrastructure provider, DAMM TetraFlex Base Stations are IOP certified for full compatibility with all TETRA terminals, giving clients the option to choose their favourite terminal brand. Users also benefit from coverage extension, as well as data capacity for videos and pictures, with TetraFlex Client for iOS, Android and Windows. This is a vendor-independent soft terminal, fulfilling the needs for non-critical voice and data communication operating through Wi-Fi, WiMax, UMTS(3G) and LTE(4G) networks.
DAMM's latest innovation, the new BS422 outdoor base station, is a cross-technology one-box solution offering TETRA, DMR Tier III, TEDS and analogue. It allows hybrid use with full integration in one coherent system. BS422 offers improved synchronisation, improved redundancy, high power and an extended frequency range.
Hundreds of successful projects worldwide confirm the durability and cost-effectiveness of DAMM's solutions, winning it a global reputation for providing the most scalable, flexible, future-proof and user-friendly TETRA infrastructure on the market. Some of the world's biggest companies in the oil and gas industry have put their trust in DAMM's TetraFlex system, such as Chevron, Shell, Exxon Chemical, DOW Chemical, Total and BP, which are now enjoying the benefits of increased control, efficiency and cost-effectiveness.
