Aussie firm's technology at the heart of Belgium's ASTRID

Belgium’s emergency services organisation’s paging system, ASTRID, has received a major upgrade, with Sydney-based company Infostream’s simulcast technology at its heart.

Several years ago, Thales Belgium won the contract to provide ASTRID with a modern paging system infrastructure and chose Infostream as one of its key suppliers, awarding it a multimillion-dollar contract.

The upgrade has been completed and has moved into its through-life support phase, with Infostream to continue to support Thales Belgium with a seven-year support contract.

“Infostream is proud to supply core infrastructure to this project and assist Thales to provide a critical service to Belgium and its volunteer firefighters,” said Infostream CTO and Executive Chairman Paul Schlusser.

“This project extends the global reach of Infostream in similar emergency systems across the world.”

ASTRID uses Infostream’s third-generation simulcast technology, called Cypher 3, developed using the company’s experience in delivering mission-critical systems.

Infostream has supplied emergency services paging technology for more than 25 years and has won multiple design awards.
