MIDDLE EAST MILITARY CITY

A military city in the Middle East, which spans a 110 km radius of desert land, provides housing and support services for army brigades and their families. To improve communications across the facility, the military city recently rolled out a MOTOTRBO digital two-way radio solution. The system allows operations and maintenance staff to clearly communicate with each other across the city in real time. As one of the first implementations of its kind in any military city within the region, the technology has helped improve response times, increase operational efficiency and reduce communication costs.

CHALLENGE

The operations and maintenance team at the military city had been using the same analogue radio system to manage operations more than 20 years. Network coverage was sparse and the technology had become obsolete. As a result, mobile staff were using costly satellite and GSM phones for communication purposes.

The organisation decided to evaluate the digital radio technology with a view to consolidating its communications on one platform for all personnel. It identifies the need for a system that would provide coverage across the city, support data applications, deliver high-quality voice calls, track users and provide interconnectivity with its landline network.
