Hytera Mobilfunk Supplies New Radio System for Dutch Public-Safety Organizations
Thursday, August 13, 2020 | Comments

The Dutch Ministry of Security and Justice’s new nationwide TETRA communications system was successfully switched "live" overnight by Hytera Mobilfunk in a one-step migration and officially handed over to the operator organization on 1st July 2020. The C2000 system is the stable basis for secure mission-critical communications in the Netherlands, according to the highest current technological standards.

"This procedure significantly reduces the complexity of a migration, since there is no need to establish interconnectivity between the ‘old’ and ‘new’ network,” said Matthias Klausing, CEO of Hytera Mobilfunk. The one-step migration is therefore saving the customer time and money. We are incredibly proud of the work of the entire C2000 team."

Hytera Mobilfunk won the tender for the renewal of the nationwide mission-critical TETRA radio system in 2015.

"We are very grateful for the trust that has been shown in Hytera Mobilfunk,” said Martin Hucke, chief operating officer at Hytera Mobilfunk and the person responsible for the C2000 project within the company. “The close and trusting cooperation with the Dutch ministry was the basis for the successful implementation of the project. We are delighted that together we have succeeded in this technical and organizational challenge."

The first major milestone of the project was reached in January. On the night of 28 January, the old network was shut down and the new, state-of-the-art ACCESSNET-T-IP system from Hytera Mobilfunk was successfully commissioned at the same time. Since then, the entire Dutch police, fire and rescue services have been communicating via the new C2000 system. Around 18,600 radios are in operation every day, making around 155,000 calls a day and processing 100 emergency calls.

"The switchover went smoothly. We were technically well prepared and with a strong team on site," said Hucke. “Since then, the system has been further optimized and adapted to the real usage criteria. Since the migration, the Hytera team has been in intensive exchange with all parties involved and users in order to make adjustments whenever needed and to resolve reported problems as quickly as possible. All users can rely on the fact that we will continue to closely monitor the network operation in the future and optimize it where necessary." Would you like to comment on this story?
