Hungary Signs Maintenance Contract for TETRA Network
Tuesday, January 26, 2016 | Comments

Airbus Defence and Space and its partner Pro-M signed a major maintenance contract for Hungary’s TETRA network, called the Unified Digital Radio System (UDRS). The frame contract is scheduled for 2020. During the next five years, Airbus Defence and Space will continue to support its users in the public-safety sector, guaranteeing that the network has high performance.

UDRS plays an important role in providing the most advanced support to enable the cooperation of Hungarian public-safety organizations. Airbus Defence and Space deployed the network, which covers about 99 percent of the country, in 2006. It is used by around 44,000 users from public-safety agencies, such as the police, border guards, fire service, catastrophe prevention, ambulance, armed forces and security services, safeguarding national security. Therefore, it is important for the network to have a high performance without any interruption of its operation during the next years.

“Hungary’s emergency and security services rely heavily on the communications provided by UDRS,” said Olivier Koczan, head of secure land communications at Airbus Defence and Space. “This contract is tangible proof that TETRA continues to be the best technology for mobile voice communications in the public-safety sector for the next years and that our customers count on our know-how in mission-critical communications systems, laying the foundations for future developments.”
