Professional mobile radio

In the 1950s, security forces and railway companies were increasingly outfitted with radio equipment. Kapsch recognized the significance of this market and took on the position of general agent for the German Telefunken GmbH in Austria in 1953. This cooperation enabled Kapsch to offer a complete spectrum of services in the realm of telecommunications.

Public safety radio was operated on an analog basis until the end of the 1980s. In such systems, radio channels were bundled to allow multiple user groups (such as rescue services and the police) to share frequencies. A standard for digital bundled radio was developed in the mid-1990s: TETRA (terrestrial trunked radio). Kapsch CarrierCom AG (KCC) looks after the TETRA sector today. In 2014, Kapsch received an order for a digital trunked radio network for the metro in Newcastle, England.
