Teltronic Provides Broadband Solution to Support Public Safety During Soccer Tournament
Monday, July 12, 2021 | Comments

Teltronic supplied the Mato Grosso State Secretariat of Public Security in Brazil with broadband technology to support the city of Cuiabá in hosting the Copa America soccer tournament. The two organizations are also jointly testing how these solutions can improve the operation of law enforcement.

Mato Grosso already has a TETRA radio network to which LTE access has been added. Through this hybrid network and the use of multimode terminals, real-time video transmission is made possible with a technology that is not yet used by any security force in Brazil.

In this way, officers carrying such multimode equipment, or equipped with a body-worn camera with broadband capabilities, can maintain their voice communications over the TETRA network, while broadband access allows video to be sent both to their battalion mates and to the control center.

"We are seeing how this innovative technology performs during a major event to better understand the tools it offers us; the images are recorded in high resolution and can contribute to other public-safety actions," said Colonel Victor Fortes, military police undersecretary for operational integration.

Military policemen from the 10th battalion of the Mato Grosso Military Police (PMMT) were in charge of testing this hybrid technology, and the images were received through CeCoCo, Teltronic’s control center solution, which was installed both in the integrated security operations centre (Ciosp) and the integrated mobile command and control center deployed outside the Pantanal Arena stadium. In addition, a drone flew over the stadium, and the images it transmitted were received equally at both locations, providing an invaluable tool for the coordination and management of these major events.

"With the expansion of digital technology, it was important for Sesp-MT to test this equipment that brings streaming video to a major event, even without an audience, but simulated for when there are situations of great movement of people," said Sergeant BM Leandro Alves, Ciosp's technical director.
