Monday, May 06, 2019 | Comments

Airbus launched MXLINK, a secure mobile virtual network operator (SMVNO) for Mexican public-safety and defense authorities. MXLINK offers multi-operator coverage, interoperability with the national Tetrapol network, and end-to-end voice and data security from a reliable telecommunications and data center platform in the country.

MXLINK was launched in Mexico City 3 May. MXLINK takes advantage of the deployment of Red Compartida for a reliable, secure, high-quality service for members of public-safety organizations, offering access to a state-of-the-art communications solution tailored to their needs. The Red Compartida network, built and operated by Altan Redes, aims to be the first fully wholesale mobile Long Term Evolution (LTE) network deployed anywhere in the world.

First deployed in 1999, the nationwide Tetrapol network covers 85% of the population and 50% of the Mexican territory and employs more than 100,000 active terminals.

“Governmental security organizations need high-quality state-of-the-art technology,” said Fred Gallart, head of sales and program delivery Latin America of Secure Land Communications at Airbus. “Our aim is to provide them with just that. MXLINK is a reliable and very secure network service, which is fully compatible and complementary with existing communications platforms such as Red Nacional de Radiocommunication and Red Compartida.”
