Hytera Mobilfunk, in corporation with the Greek companies Network Business Solutions and Rohde & Schwarz Hellas, has been awarded a contract to supply TETRA infrastructure for Piraeus Container Terminal (PCT), near Athens in Greece.
Piraeus Container Terminal, which commenced operations in 2009, is being converted into the first large scale, state-of-art modern container terminal in Greece. PCT is a wholly-owned subsidiary of the world leading container terminal operator COSCO Pacific.
The full blown ACCESSNET-T IP TETRA system from Hytera Mobilfunk will be used to provide mission critical voice and data communications on the premises of the PCT.
The network design provides an extremely robust communication system, according to Hytera. It completely avoids any single point of failure and is designed to meet all the customer needs with regards to secure and reliable TETRA communications.
The distributed architecture of the PCT TETRA network offers better flexibility and an increased robustness against any individual point of failure within the network.
In addition, Hytera will deploy TETRA application dispatchers and PABX/PSTN gateway interfaces throughout the entire network, especially at base station locations.
