Hytera expands Brazilian TETRA network
Hytera will provide TETRA communications infrastructure for the Secretariat of Public Security of the State of Alagoas, Brazil.
The company signed contracts that will see it expand the statewide mission-critical communications network and provide four-year maintenance service.
The total contracts value is around US$6.5 million with the infrastructure contract around $1.3 million and the service contract around $5.2 million.
“We are excited being chosen as the equipment and service provider of Alagoas’ statewide TETRA system. The state authority shows confidence in Hytera’s ability to deliver advanced and reliable public safety communications networks. For the expansion, we presented the latest development of TETRA technologies,” said John Zhou, the General Manager of Hytera Brazil.
“The new contracts as a milestone for Hytera Brazil recognise us not only as a leading TETRA solution provider but also a trusted service provider, and it is the embodiment of Hytera transformation globally.”
In early 2014 Hytera delivered TETRA infrastructure, terminals and dispatcher to the public safety users of State of Alagoas, who were modernising its communications systems to better serve the communities and prepare for the global soccer fiesta, the World Cup 2014.
The newly signed equipment contract includes 31 sites with Hytera’s latest TETRA innovation, DIB R5 base station. It adopts a maintenance-free, space-saving design and can be installed on walls, on antenna masts or in tunnels. Thanks to its low power consumption and passive cooling, it is ideal for use in areas where power supply is critical or where there is a need for battery-based, portable base station solutions.
With the expansion of the TETRA network, different public safety forces such as police, firefighters and emergency response in the State of Alagoas will share the network to facilitate optimal cooperation when the situation requires, which is another big step forward by the local authorities to improve the security of the state.
