Over 1,800 Hytera DMR hand portables PD70X/PD78X were deployed to support the Thames Diamond Jubilee Pageant event on 3 June 2012. The Pageant saw over one thousand boats mustered on the River Thames in London as part of the Queen’s Diamond Jubilee celebrations.
Roadphone NRB, a Hytera partner in the UK, supplied the terminals along with base station repeaters and accessories. During the event, the radios performed excellently in the very wet conditions due to their IP67 rating.
The event produced one of the largest flotillas ever assembled on the river. The flotilla was bolstered with passenger boats carrying members of the public placed in a floating celebration of the Queen’s 60 year reign.
Besides the Thames Diamond Jubilee Pageant, Hytera products and solutions have also supported other large events this year including Euro 2012, China-Thailand joint military training, and Sri Lanka Esala Full Moon Poya Day.
