Island joined with TETRA system

Thursday, 01 May, 2008

Zenitel has launched its ‘ChuChubi TETRA trunking network’ into the French regions of the Caribbean island Saint Martin.

Sint Maarten/Saint Martin, the smallest Island in the world ever to have been partitioned between two different nations, has been shared by the French and the Dutch for almost 350 years.

The border is almost imperceptible, yet all the same, each side has managed to retain much of the distinctiveness of its own national culture and official language.

In the past, Zenitel has worked with the Dutch region providing its ChuChubi digital radio communications. The company will now provide the same technology to the French side of Saint Martin, potentially serving taxi associations, the gendarmerie, the emergency services and logistics personnel. Zenitel will also distribute professional handheld radios from Motorola and EADS.

The network includes services such as group call, full duplex privatecall, text messaging, priority traffic, emergency buttons, encryption and data transport. The company also delivers vehicle tracing systems to allow users to follow the exact position of their vehicles and portable radios on a map.
