DAMM MultiTech Outdoor Base Station BS422

With the technology-independent DAMM BS422 it is possible to run TETRA, DMR Tier III, analog or a combination of these in a core-connected system.

With the technology-independent DAMM BS422 it is possible to run TETRA, DMR Tier III, analog or a combination of these in a core-connected system. With its multiple carriers, frequency sharing functionality and a choice between UHF and VHF, it is flexibility in a box.

Full technology flexibility

DAMM BS422 can run as a state-of-the-art TETRA or DMR Tier III network. Alternatively, the core-connected design enables combination of different technologies in one box without the use of gateways or bridges. Based on a decentralized architecture, this innovate design can be scaled at any time to meet changing voice and data needs with a simple click.

Seamless integration

The BS422 can be set up as either a stand-alone system or be seamlessly integrated into any existing DAMM single-tech network.

Rugged and compact design

The BS422 is built to withstand harsh conditions – from extreme cold to extreme heat and also wet conditions thanks to its IP65 encapsulation. Its compact and light-weight design makes it easy to install everywhere from masts to tunnels and on the back of a truck.

Reduce frequency licence costs

Frequency sharing allows adjacent BS422s to use the same frequencies. This is a significant benefit in low-density networks and gives the possibility to cover e.g. a railway line with just two frequency pairs instead of up to typically five pairs.

Simplify repeater systems

With frequency sharing an indoor repeater system can be built without optical fibres. The same hardware can be used as base station and repeater unit, increasing redundancy and simplifying the network architecture by having one unified network management system and reduced spare part stock.

Base station geo-redundancy

With the BS422 network availability can be brought to a new level. Two BS422s located at two sites can act as one fully redundant base station, sharing the same frequencies. This will add redundancy not only to the base station, but also to the whole antenna system.

Reduce infrastructure costs with VHF

Save on infrastructure costs by utilizing VHF frequencies to obtain the same coverage as UHF using fewer base stations.

Saving time and resources

With just one type of hardware, operations, repairs and maintenance is both easier and more cost-efficient. All technologies are covered by the same software, making network management and maintenance equally simplified. Applications like dispatchers and voice and data log systems can be used across all technologies, which all use the same gateways.

No single point of failure

The decentralized architecture at the core of the BS422 ensures that all system information is constantly replicated to all sites in the network. This way, the system does not have any single point of failure, and local call and data traffic will run without interruption, even if one site loses its connection to the rest of the network.

Flexible and future-proof

The flat decentralized IP architecture and intuitive software also enable effortless, self-configuring site expansion. The BS422 can be used with single or multiple carriers as well as single or multiple technologies, giving maximum flexibility.
