Beijing's TETRA network to be maintained by Airbus

Airbus and JusTop have signed a three-year maintenance contract which will see Airbus provide comprehensive services for Beijing’s TETRA network.

The contract will run until the end of 2020 and includes on-site support, maintenance services and a 24/7 emergency support with troubleshooting competences. Furthermore, Airbus will install a help desk for the shared network.

“Our extensive service also includes the frequency planning and hardware part replacement, if necessary,” said Airbus Head of Middle East and Asia-Pacific for Secure Land Communication Selim Bouri.

The shared network serves various government authorities, including the municipal government, the emergency response office, armed police, traffic police, firefighters, ambulance services and utility companies. Airbus has supplied nine switches in two switch centres and more than 550 base stations with five phase projects. The network serves approximately 110,000 subscribers. It is Asia’s largest TETRA network.

The Beijing Government Shared Network has been using Airbus technology for prestigious events and summits in China since its inception in 2003. For instance, it was indispensable for the Olympic Games in 2008, the APEC Economic Leaders’ meeting in 2014, the International Association of Athletics Federations World Championships in 2015 and ‘The Belt and Road Forum for International Cooperation’ in 2017. The network provides essential and flexible communication services for the Chinese capital and continuously serves public safety agencies.
