Utility operator gets Airbus IP TETRA in network overhaul

Stadtwerke München’s (SWM) 9000-plus employees can expect more effective and reliable communications, following the company’s migration to Airbus’s latest Internet Protocol (IP) and TETRA technologies.

The upgrade saw Airbus work with SWM to install Airbus’s geo-redundant, high-availability Taira TETRA server and convert SWM’s existing private mobile radio network to IP.

The system is designed to be flexible and expandable, enabling additional users to be integrated if required in the future, Airbus said.  

“SWM has opted for a system upgrade which allows the company to determine for itself the future of its secure communications. We are providing the company with our fullest support, so that SWM can flexibly expand its network and subsequently also implement broadband technology,” Airbus’s Secure Land Communications Head of Sales of Northern, Central and Eastern Europe, Markus Holland, said.

The new technology, along with extra Airbus equipment, recently provided safe and dependable communications at the 56th Munich Security Conference, ensuring it ran successfully and efficiently. The two companies have been serving the event since 2012.
