Why combine a TETRA radio and smartphone?


We’ve all grown used to smartphones in our private lives – and police officers in countries such as Finland, France, Sweden, Switzerland, United Arab Emirates and the UK are already using smartphones in their work. They are taking advantage of broadband and high-resolution video.

This has the obvious drawback of each officer carrying two devices or more and all the management headaches that creates.

The smartest R&D people took a new look at the two devices challenge. Their solution was to bring full TETRA radio functionality into a smartphone that is specially designed for professional, every day, all-the-time use.

Rewriting the rules

Tactilon Dabat rewrites the rules of what a professional mobile device should be.


It is optimised for speech, not music as are many smartphones. It cuts background noise that many professional users struggle with. It also has extended battery life, twice that of a standard smartphone.
