Satellite communications, by its very nature of providing wide-area coverage can play an important role in interconnecting TETRA networks. A satellite link may be used to support any of the interfaces in TETRA network. However, the selection of particular interface applies to specific scenarios and provides different advantages and disadvantages. The viability of a satellite link for the interconnection of two TETRA networks using the Inter-System Interface (ISI) is studied with respect to desired functionality and QoS. ISI-based TETRA over satellite can be used in emergency situations when no terrestrial infrastructure exists between the two networks, as well as in normal operations as an alternative to ground based interconnection infrastructure.
