TETRA Radio Planning and Network design for Yamama Co and Gas Arabia in Saudi Arabia

Net Technologies is proud to deliver the radio design projects for Yamama Plant and Gas Arabia pipelines in Saudi Arabia.


For the project, Net Technologies cooperated with Dubaib and Sulaim Co, a specialized construction company operating in the Gulf Region.


Net Technologies, using the most suitable methodologies and tools, performed

  • Outdoor Radio Coverage Study for the TETRA signal distribution along the way to Yamama Pipeline Route.
  • Investigation of the optimum solution to achieve client’s requirements and target KPIs.
  • Simulate and present the outdoor signal distribution in terms of signal strength, terminal classes (HPR deep indoor, HPR indoor, HPR Outdoor and VMR Outdoor).
  • The simulations are performed with the latest release of powerful professional radio planning tool – Mentum Planet 6.1.
  • Using deterministic propagation models (such as CRC-Predict 4.8) to have more realistic coverage results.
  • Following the technical TETRA ETSI standards for dimensioning network characteristics during the simulation process.
  • Simulations performed with detailed digital satellite maps.
  • Preliminary evaluation of existing signals, in the area of interest, based on professional drive tests performed with Nemo Outdoor and Nemo Analyze.


In addition, we performed

  • TETRA system design including the core network connectivity.
  • Selecting the best antenna types and configuration from various worldwide TETRA manufacturers.
  • Specification of the cables and feeder types and respective connection elements.
  • Dimensioning of TETRA traffic resources including calculations of the maximum users/terminals to be supported by the network.
  • Frequency analysis investigating frequency pairs which do cause interference and intermodulation distortion including calculations of transmitter noise and received desensitization.
  • Generation bill of materials (BoM).
  • Using in-house supporting tools such as Network Planning and Optimization Services (P-ProM), Site Survey and Site Survey Services (S-ProM), Site Integration and Communication Services (I-ProM), Coverage and Performance Testing Services (T-ProM)
  • Provide recommendations for optimization and improvement of network operations.
