The EDR network was deployed by Airbus Defence and Space in 2006 and currently covers approximately 99 per cent of the country. It is used by around 44,000 users from public safety agencies, such as the police, border guards, fire service, catastrophe prevention, ambulance, armed forces and security services, safeguarding national security.

“Hungary’s emergency and security services rely heavily on the communications provided by EDR,” said Olivier Koczan, head of Secure Land Communications at Airbus Defence and Space. “This contract is tangible proof that TETRA continues to be the best technology for mobile voice communication in the public safety sector for the next years and that our customers count on our know-how in mission critical communications systems, laying the foundations for future developments.”
