Airbus wins major oil company contract

The largest oil and gas company in Saudi Arabia has chosen Airbus to update its critical communications network. The latter will be deploying its Tactilon Agnet 800 solution, as well as TETRA-based technology.

The Tactilon Agnet 800 application allows smartphone users to communicate with TETRA radios.

Speaking of the roll-out, Airbus head of sales for the region, Walid Lahoud, said: “Airbus technology is capable of supporting [this] company’s diverse communication and collaboration requirements. The upgrade is aligned with its strategy, in order to reinforce facilities and maximise the use of the latest smart solutions.

“With digital features specifically designed for mission- and business-critical use, Airbus secure communications technology helps boost productivity, safety and operational efficiency. This is especially important at critical sites where security and environmental protection requirements are at their highest.”
