Pope Visit to Peru Secured with TETRA, LTE Technology
Tuesday, February 13, 2018 | Comments

Hytera Mobilfunk implemented a unified communications solution with TETRA and Digital Mobile Radio (DMR) equipment for critical voice and broadband data services for Peruvian first responder organizations. The Hytera multimode radio and broadband applications installed in the integrated command-and-control center were in operation during the pope’s visit.

Pope Francis visited the cities of Lima, Puerto Maldonado and Trujillo. To improve the situational awareness, the terminals deployed during the visit were able to quickly and effectively stream video from the field and combined narrowband mission-critical communications with LTE broadband data throughput.

With more than 1.3 million people at the Peruvian airbase of Las Palmas, in Lima, to attend the final mass held by Pope Francis, the TETRA system built and operated by the Peruvian National Police was used by more than 8,000 users to ensure seamless communications between all the public-safety organizations.

In addition, another TETRA network created especially for the event by a Peruvian mission-critical operator was equipped with more than 200 TETRA portable radios to provide seamless communications to the volunteers in charge to internal security in the final mass hosted in Las Palmas Airbase.

“We are proud to have supported the biggest event organized in Peru,” said Luis Perez, head of Hytera Perú. “Securing narrowband voice communications with TETRA and DMR technologies and deploying our LTE convergence solution to secure the more 1.3 million attendees for the mass in a small area were a big challenge and success for our team.”
