Brazilian State Selects Hytera to Expand TETRA Network
Monday, September 10, 2018 | Comments

Hytera Communications signed contracts with the Secretariat of Public Security of the state of Alagoas, Brazil, to provide TETRA communications infrastructure for the expansion of the statewide mission-critical communications networks, as well as four years of maintenance service.

The contracts total around US$6.5 million with the infrastructure contract for around US$1.3 million and the service contract for around US$5.2 million.

“We are excited to be chosen as the equipment and service provider of Alagoas’ statewide TETRA system,” said John Zhou, general manager of Hytera Brazil. “The state authority shows confidence in Hytera’s ability to deliver advanced and reliable public-safety communications networks. For the expansion, we presented the latest development of TETRA technologies. The new contracts, as a milestone for Hytera Brazil, recognize us not only as a leading TETRA solution provider but also a trusted service provider. It is the embodiment of Hytera’s transformation globally.”

In early 2014, Hytera delivered TETRA infrastructure, terminals and dispatchers to the public-safety users of Alagoas, which was modernizing its communications systems to better serve its communities and prepare for the 2014 World Cup.

The newly signed equipment contract includes 31 sites with the DIB R5 base station. The product has a maintenance-free, space-saving design and can be installed on walls, antenna masts or in tunnels. Low power cooling and passive cooling make it ideal for areas where power supply is critical or where a battery-based portable base station is needed.

With the expansion of the TETRA network, different public-safety forces such as police firefighters and emergency response in Alagoas will share the network to facilitate optimal cooperation when the situation requires, which is another big step by the local authorities to improve the security of the state.
