Comparing Voice Coverage: DMR and TETRA

Technology Comparison

Download this Paper


This paper provides a technical comparison between DMR and TETRA voice coverage, providing a simple ratio between the number of base stations each requires to cover a given area. Both downlink (base station to terminals), and uplink (terminals to base station) paths are considered, across both urban and rural terrains.

It discusses the measurable factors affecting coverage, how they affect relative coverage between these two technologies and explains how the conclusions were reached.
