Airbus provides TETRA for 56th Munich Security Conference

Airbus’s tap-proof radio technology has again provided safe and smooth communications at this year’s Munich Security Conference (MSC). 

The 14–16 February event saw Airbus connect TB3c and TB3hp base stations to TETRA network operator Stadtwerke München’s (SWM) existing infrastructure and SWM use its newly installed IP technology, including Airbus’s Taira and a geo-redundant solution, to connect conference staff and operational teams across the event. A third operational base station was used for side events in the Greater Munich area, according to Airbus. 

SWM also made Airbus’s TH1n radio available to security and conference personnel, ensuring any tasks relating to organisational support were completed efficiently and effectively, Airbus said.

The company has been supplying mobile radio services for the event since 2012, with MSC having extended its contract until 2021, MSC Chief Operating Officer Benedikt Franke said.

The MSC has developed over 56 years to become one of the key conferences in foreign affairs and security policy. Every year, it provides high-ranking decision-makers from all over the world with a forum for discussions on current and future security policy challenges. Once again, many guests — both from Germany and from overseas — attended the event, Airbus and the MSC reported.
