EADS Defence & Security Helps Shenzhen Public Security Bureau to Build the largest TETRA Communication System in China
- Helps Public Security Bureau improve operational efficiency and enhance communication security
- Improves security for more than 14 million people in Shenzhen
- Will ensure security of the 26th World University Games
- Achieves integration with existing command centre systems
EADS Defence & Security (DS) and iASPEC Software Co., Ltd. have just signed a contract to jointly provide a TETRA radio communication system for the Shenzhen Public Security Bureau. This TETRA network will be the largest digital trunked network for the police in China providing secure radio communications for more than 25,000 users in the city of Shenzhen. It will also offer secure communication services for the 26th World University Games scheduled for August, 2011.
EADS TETRA network, which features a nextgeneration switch called DXT3, a TB3 base station and a dispatching system, offers powerful integration capacity for data services and IP expansion possibilities. Shenzhen Public Security Bureau is the first system in China to be integrated with existing command centres. This solution will enable security forces to improve their emergency command and dispatching capabilities. For example, after receiving a call, the alarm receiving and disposal system will first find the nearest available police officer via the automatic vehicle/personnel location system, and will then issue orders using geographic information systems (GIS) to direct the police officer to the accident site. In addition, alarm receiving and disposal systems keep track of all responding police officers. Deployment of the EADS TETRA network has already started and the system will be put into service at the beginning of next summer.
"We are very honoured and happy that the Shenzhen Public Security Bureau has chosen EADS Defence & Security. After the double success of our digital trunked network during the Beijing 2008 Olympic Games and the 60th anniversary celebration of the People's Republic of China, this new contract highlights the fact that our proven TETRA solution is the preferred one in China," said François Begaud, Head of Secure Networks in Asia Pacific.
