Hytera Mobilfunk has been awarded a contract by the Ministry of the Presidency to extend the Dominican Republic’s TETRA radio system. Hytera installed a TETRA radio solution to provide radio communications and a secure 911 service for the Santo Domingo area in 2013.
The radio system is part of a comprehensive project, which includes a 911 system, a camera surveillance system and the radio communications infrastructure along with the supply of TETRA radio terminals.
Currently, the Hytera TETRA radio system consists of six base stations, one switching unit and a comprehensive network management system. In 2014, this system will be extended by Hytera by another four base stations.
The radio system covers the whole National District and Santo Domingo province together with neighbouring municipalities. The TETRA solution with control and dispatch facilities enables all public safety groups, including police, fire and ambulance services, to work effectively together to deal with security incidents and attend any public emergency that may occur.
Out of the five proposals the Dominican Government received for this public tender, Hytera Mobilfunk offered the best solution and the best price.
Marco Martinato, VP Sales of Hytera Mobilfunk Germany, stated: “The key of our success was that Hytera Mobilfunk presented the most solid technical and economical offer, carried out a trial to demonstrate the strengths and powerful features of the ACCESSNET-T TETRA system and teamed up with the local partner Avelock Dominicana.”
