State-of-the-art Professional Mobile Radio (PMR) technology from Airbus Defence and Space formed the centrepiece of an interactive conference organised by the Professional Communication Corporation – NEDAA Corporation and Atlas Telecom that took place in Dubai, United Arab Emirates (UAE), at the beginning of June.
90 participants from various public safety organisations from the UAE, such as the Dubai Police, Civil Defence, Ambulance, Electricity and Water Authority, Airports, and Roads and Transport Authority, attended the event.
The audience was provided with an update on the latest technological developments as well as information about new network infrastructure elements, including the Claricor solution for small to medium-sized networks, the latest Tetra (Terrestrial Trunked Radio) terminals like the TH1n, the world’s smallest Tetra radio, and the LTE (Long Term Evolution) roadmap for developing broadband from Airbus Defence and Space.
Airbus Defence and Space has been active in the Middle East since 2005. The company has set up Tetra radio communication networks in Kuwait, Qatar, Bahrain, the UAE and Saudi Arabia, either in the oil and gas sectors, for defence organizations or for public safety organizations of those countries (either as the prime contractor or through its partner Atlas Telecom). Airbus Defence and Space has so far deployed eight Tetra networks in the region, where more than 1000 base stations have been installed and are in operation.
The NEDAA Professional Communication Corporation is a secure telecom network operator in the UAE that uses Airbus Defence and Space technology provided by Atlas Telecom. This technology provides secure and reliable communication services to all specialised governmental, semi-governmental and private institutions that aspire to be leaders in the field of secure telecommunications for public safety organisations. The Dubai government’s strategic plan for 2015 includes the preparation of further network developments that take into account future communication needs. The conference provided a valuable insight into different possible scenarios for the network’s evolution.
