ETELM, a manufacturer of advanced mission critical communications infrastructures, is using this week’s Mission Critical Africa to discuss how its 4G-Linked solution is meeting the growing demand for safe cities across Africa and beyond.
ETELM’s 4GLinked solution has been designed with Mission Critical users in mind, allowing a balance between cost, service, and coverage. It is based on open telecommunications standards using a LTE Core network and provides a single platform for both legacy infrastructure and new and emerging technologies. This kind of interoperability reduces the long-term cost for users, as there is no need for upgrades each time a new standard, or product, comes to market.
Exhibiting at one of the top platforms for critical communications in Africa will enable ETELM to develop further ties in the region and establish new partnerships.
“Africa is an important market for ETELM as we recognise that Critical Communications is at the heart of many industries across the continent,” said Nicolas Hauswald, Sales and Marketing Director, ETELM. “Whether our clients are working within aviation, oil and gas, mining, logistics, security, or transport, the environment can often be changeable. As such, secure, reliable, robust, and interoperable infrastructures capable of withstanding harsh conditions are essential.”
The ETELM solution offers flexibility regardless of location; for instance, the LTE functionality can operate in densely populated areas with high demand for connectivity and bandwidth. Meanwhile, the TETRA/DMR capabilities are ideally suited to rural and remote areas that require fewer services, but place an emphasis on coverage.
“Attending Mission Critical Africa is a fantastic opportunity for ETELM. We look forward to discussing the requirements of safe cities across Africa and invite attendees to stop by our stand to find out how ETELM can help them,” added Hauswald.
Visitors to Mission Critical Africa 2017, a side event at AfricaCom, runs from November 7-9, at the Cape Town International Convention Centre in South Africa.

ETELM, founded over 35 years ago, is based in Paris, France. It develops and supplies advanced radio communications infrastructure including LTE, TETRA, DMR and Analogue base stations (that can be fully integrated to the LTE Core) along with a range of software applications including network management, dispatcher, voice recorders and gateways to other technologies. ETELM is dedicated to offering fully integrated, multi-technology solutions using industry standard core networking.
The firm’s 4G Linked portfolio is a range of products designed for the radio communications market, linking both Narrowband and Broadband into a single, fully distributed LTE core network. The solution is unique as it enables standard TETRA, DMR, Analogue and P25 base stations to directly connect to the same LTE core network as 4G eNodeB cell equipment, avoiding the need for black boxes or gateways.
