Mobile radio access company Telesystem International Wireless has acquired its rivals in the UK and Germany.
Mobile radio access is used by fleets of vehicles, such as company trucks, to communicate with each other. The industry is moving from analogue to a digital network called Tetra - trans-European trunked radio - which also enables users to make calls outside of the fleet. This will enable the service to compete with traditional cellular networks.
Telesystem has acquired the first UK Tetra licence holder, National Band Three, and Germany's second operator, Terrafon Bundelfunk. The acqusitions are worth $90 million in total and gives Telesystem an extra 105,000 subscribers.
Telesystem plans to build a pan-European wireless network based on Tetra (Trans European Trunked Radio) standard, which will also offer 28.8Kbps packet data switching.
The company also operates mobile radio services in France, Brazil, China, India and Romania.
