Airbus deploys communication security for the Hajj pilgrimage

Airbus rolled out its Tactilon Agnet 800 collaboration platform and Tetra technology for use of public safety and security forces on the field and in the control rooms for this year‘s Hajj holy pilgrimage in Mecca. Like the previous Hajj seasons, collaboration among security officials was key to safeguarding the safety and wellbeing of the tens of thousands of people who performed Hajj this year.

Public and security authorities benefit from Tactilon Agnet’s Tetra and broadband features such as emergency calls and real-time location tracking. Dispatchers, on the other hand, are equipped to monitor and command Tactilon Agnet and Tetra users through a computer-aided dispatch system integrated into the control room.

Airbus’s Tactilon Agnet allows secure group communication and one-to-one calls through voice and video as well as picture and text messaging, which improves teamwork and collaboration between team members. Furthermore, the platform enables users to leverage the solutions to talk, exchange multimedia messages and record and share videos at the touch of a button with other members of their group regardless of whether the different devices used are smartphones or Tetra radios.
