Airbus TETRA deployed on F1 Bahrain circuit
The Formula 1 Bahrain circuit was fitted out with Airbus TETRA technology in order to ensure secure communication during the car race.
The Bahrain International Circuit Organisation used the Kingdom of Bahrain’s extended TETRA network infrastructure during the race, which was held 29–31 March.
“Events, such as Formula 1 races, draw massively people’s attention to the Arabian peninsula. To keep the Bahrain Grand Prix safe and well organised, a TETRA system from Airbus was primordial,” said Selim Bouri, Vice-President and Head of Middle East and Asia-Pacific of Secure Land Communications at Airbus.
Airbus supplied various types of TETRA radio, such as the THR880i and the TMR880i, as well as additional network capacity for the racing site. The company has offered its services for the Formula 1 race in Bahrain since 2005. These solutions are used in areas where the level of security is critical, such as the overall event security and monitoring of the race itself to ensure the safety of the competitors.
