Jersey City, NJ  — November 5, 2013 — Following a contract award in 2012, PowerTrunk, Inc., the North American subsidiary of Teltronic  S.A.U., a major global TETRA vendor, started supplying and commissioning a 800 MHz TETRA network for NJ TRANSIT’s replacement Bus Radio System through a U.S.-based systems integrator.  The network went live in early 2013 with partial coverage in the Newark, New Jersey area and is currently being used in a limited capacity by NJ TRANSIT staff as the system continues to be built-out. This is the first commercial TETRA network in the United States to become operational.
