Munich Security Conference Implements TETRA Network
Friday, February 22, 2019 | Comments

Together with Munich’s municipal utility operator Stadtwerke München, Airbus equipped the 55th Munich Security Conference (MSC) with mission-critical and encrypted communication solutions. The organizers opted for TETRA system for the eighth time in a row.

The network supported around 120 personnel who coordinated logistics and protected high-level participants in the fields of international politics, business and media. The Airbus technology comprised two base stations at the convention center in Munich’s city center for indoor coverage. Moreover, a third base station was placed in the vicinity of Munich’s airport. The latter helped to better conduct the arrival of international delegates.

A fourth base station was placed in the plenary hall of the Bavarian parliament during the John McCain Award ceremony. Airbus also supplied professional devices and applications designed for this event, facilitating security checks and indoor geolocation.

“Since 2012, Airbus has served us with highly reliable mobile communications services,” said Benedikt Franke, chief operating officer (COO) of the MSC. “Consequently, we have decided to extend the contract with Airbus until 2021 to support our yearly conference in Munich.”

Initially launched in 1963, the MSC has become one of the most important conferences in the fields of foreign and security policy. Each year, it gathers high-ranking policy-makers from across the world with a forum for discussions of current and future security challenges.
