Hytera Mobilfunk (HMF) has tested what it calls a “multi-cell, mission-critical LTE network” on behalf of the Hungarian public safety communications operator, Pro-M.

According to the company, the 700 MHz test system was set up in the centre of Budapest, consisting of an LTE core, MCX application server and two SmartOne dispatchers. In addition, says a statement, “a baseband unit and a remote radio unit were installed at three other locations.”

Products used during the test included Hytera PTC760 multi-mode advanced radios, PNC550 PoC devices, and VM780 body cams.

Speaking of the test, a spokesperson for the company said: “Held over several weeks, they focused primarily on functional testing. Pro-M is currently evaluating LTE as a successor technology for their latest TETRA network.

“In addition, the HMF team also conducted a drive test to take a close look at the quality of the radio coverage, network capacity and the overall performance of the network. Everything worked well, as expected, and we are very satisfied with the test results.”
