Airbus to service LEW TelNet network

Airbus will support the operation of LEW TelNet’s digital mobile network in Germany, having just signed a five-year service agreement.

Airbus will migrate the protected mobile communications platforms of LEW TelNet, the telecommunications company of the regional energy supplier Lechwerke (LEW) in Bavaria, to Internet Protocol (IP).

This will enable LEW TelNet to communicate even more securely in the future and expand its systems as required. Moreover, IP will later allow the use of broadband solutions. In addition, Airbus will provide emergency services and train LEW TelNet employees.

“Airbus presented us with a custom-designed offer that includes flexible grid expansion, on-site service and forward-looking technology. This will allow us to take on and shape the challenges before us in the coming years,” said Christian Böhm, Head of Communication Networks at LEW TelNet.

Airbus began modernising LEW TelNet’s secure mobile network in 2015 and first delivered the IP-based TETRA DXTA switch to LEW TelNet. This state-of-the-art server with 99.999% reliability can also handle broadband services. As a provider of IT and secure communications services, LEW TelNet supplies encrypted communications technology not only to Lechwerke but also to other regional energy providers in Germany.

“We have successfully equipped numerous companies in the energy sector worldwide with our technology. This experience will benefit all customers, and especially the technology pioneer LEW TelNet,” said Markus Kolland, Head of Sales in Northern, Central and Eastern Europe for Secure Land Communications at Airbus.

He said that highly reliable communications platforms are crucial for utilities to enable the next generation of secure multimedia communications.

“Our partners and customers appreciate when we work with them hand in hand. Our job is to enable sustainable solutions.”
