    January 7, 2010 – Release 4.3 – Adding new process support capabilities – Particularly suited for Industry and Security
    With the launch of Release 4.3 Kolibri Systems increases its capabilities with new functionalities: the possibility to use complex geofences to initiate triggers; with regular expression parsing, commands can be extracted from SDS text messages; dynamic aliasing – showing changed aliases in all overviews at once; the displaying of item labels on the map. The new functionality in particular aids industrial TETRA system users to better keep administrative track over the radio fleet, e.g. when there is one radio for more users and allows to match the use of TETRA radio communication in the working procedures, thus winning time. Also both industry and security are helped with (virtual) geofences – which can trigger a timer, alarms or messages (both to the console and/or the radio) when entering, leaving, or being inside or outside the geofenced area.

    November 9, 2009 – Kolibri application partner for EADS and Motorola TETRA programmes

Examples are that through this an external gate can be opened; an external system, e.g. CCTV, can be given a control signal; or, when an alarm is set off an SDS can be sent to radios. An additional advantage is that through this user specific functionality within Kolibri can be defined. Other new features within Release 4.1, include Server Redundancy, Multiple Screen support, Multiple user accounts per console and a number of GUI improvements.
