Airbus TETRA deployed at Beijing forum
Airbus has supplied secure radio communications technology for a Chinese event that hosts 20 heads of state and 1200 delegates from around the world.
The Belt and Road Forum for International Cooperation in Beijing focuses on economic development and cooperation in Asia, and relied on a ‘JustTop’ mission-critical radio network based on Airbus TETRA.
“Airbus has always been a frontrunner in professional mobile radio technology and our experience allows extremely reliable solutions,” said Selim Bouri, head of sales and program delivery Middle East and APAC of Secure Land Communications at Airbus.
“In China, we have accomplished large-scale network projects. Such mission-critical communications technology based on the TETRA standard has huge potential in all Asia, whether in public safety or industries.”
In recent years, Airbus has provided additional network infrastructure for large sporting events and political summits. TETRA technology laid the foundation for secure communications, enabling the security forces to coordinate their work efficiently.
Being the largest TETRA network in the Asia–Pacific region and the second largest of its kind worldwide, the Beijing JustTop network has around 110,000 subscribers from public safety organisations, including police, emergency response officers, firefighters, ambulances and the municipal government. It comprises nine DXT-series switches and 550 base stations.
It covers not only the city area, but also metro lines, highways, important buildings and several counties. Since its inception in the year 2003, it has supported many prestigious events, such as the Olympic Games in 2008 and the International Association of Athletics Federations World Championships in 2015.
