German Firm Contracts Airbus for TETRA Upgrade
Thursday, November 15, 2018 | Comments

Airbus will begin upgrading German energy provider Stadtwerke München’s (SWM) TETRA network to IP technology. The supplier will also replace the core system, making the network more georedundant and reliable and data transmission more secure, a statement said.

The modernization work can be done without major interruptions to the ongoing operation of the TETRA network and will be conducted in separate migration phases. SWM will be able in the future, for example, to integrate even more participants and system components in the communications system. Airbus will adapt the network according to SWM's requirements.

"SWM has opted for a system upgrade, which allows it to determine for itself the future of its secure communications,” said Markus Kolland, head of sales of Northern, Central and Eastern Europe for Secure Land Communications at Airbus. “We are providing the company with our fullest support, so that SWM can flexibly expand its network and subsequently also implement broadband technology.”

SWM is the largest public company in Europe, providing the population in the Munich region with electricity, renewable energies, water, telecommunications, swimming pools and local public transport.
