Hytera Mobilfunk is providing the Peruvian government with a secure TETRA two-way radio system to support the Bolivarian Games 2013, which are held between 16-30 November 2013
As host of the games, the Peruvian government will provide a powerful TETRA communication system covering all the sporting events across the two venues in the cities of Trujillo and Lima
Hytera will deploy its ACCESSNET-T IP TETRA system to provide the main infrastructure for the radio network. The system will be used to coordinate the emergency response of public safety organisations and public safety subscribers.
The professional mobile radio system also includes Hytera TETRA DWS dispatchers, APD TETRA dispatchers and a customised AVL/APL system for dynamic group assignment and geographical location of public safety subscribers and smart patrols.
The TETRA system will ensure that all the different public safety organisations coordinate their responses to any incident and work together to ensure the safety of everyone involved in the Games.
The system has been designed to work as a TETRA nation-wide network, so as to provide secure communications between the venue cities. Nevertheless, the system is also able to work as an independent single-city TETRA communications network.
Hundreds of PT580H Hytera TETRA handheld terminals and Hytera MT680 mobile terminals have been distributed to staff working for the different public safety organisations.
The Bolivarian Games have been held since 1938 in honour of Simón Bolívar, the military and political leader during the Latin American struggle for independence.
In 2013, for the first time in the history of the games, in addition to the six ODEBO nations (Bolivia, Colombia, Ecuador, Panama, Venezuela and Peru) Chile, Dominican Republic, Guatemala and Paraguay will also participate. In the following weeks Peru will play host to approximately 5,000 athletes.
