Hungarian Nuclear Plant Selects Airbus TETRA Network
Thursday, September 12, 2019 | Comments

Airbus was granted an order by the Hungarian government communications service provider, Pro-M, to supply a TETRA network for the operation of the Paks Nuclear Power Plant. The scope of the frame contract includes the connection to the Hungarian nationwide TETRA network Unified Digital Radio Communications System (EDR) and the maintenance of the plant network.

The system will contain two switches, two base stations, network management, dispatcher stations, voice recording, a short data service (SDS) server and real-time capacity monitoring. Network construction is scheduled for completion in mid-2021.

Cooperation with customer Pro-M and MVM Paks NPP, assisted by the Hungarian Atomic Energy Authority, played a significant role in the Airbus agreement. EDR provides advanced support to enable the cooperation of Hungarian public-safety organizations. The network was deployed by Airbus in 2006 and covers about 99 percent of the country. It is used by about 55,000 users belonging to public-safety agencies.

The connection of the Paks Nuclear Power Plant facilities to EDR will contribute to enhanced security of the nuclear installation and to the protection of the population. The improved communication means will help to prevent unexpected incidents, mitigate their impact in the event of a disaster, and enable the efficient cooperation with all emergency organizations.
