Madhya Pradesh Police has chosen a multi-site DAMM TetraFlex base station solution to help it protect approximately 50 million pilgrims who will attend Simhastha or the Kumbh Mela, held in the city of Ujjain in India, between 22 April and 21 May. The event is expected to involve 23,000 police personnel, 80,000 administrative staff and 60,000 volunteers.
The customer chose DAMM TetraFlex after a detailed evaluation process and field trials alongside other digital technologies such as P25 TDMA and DMR and it came to the conclusion that the features and functionalities offered by TETRA were far superior to other technologies. Being an Open standard proved important as the customer could choose among the best radio terminals available and that met their operational requirements.
The communication solution consists of a Multisite DAMM TetraFlex® Outdoor System along with gateways for interconnection to telephony network and the existing Analog network of Madhya Pradesh Police. A DAMM TetraFlex® Voice and Data Logging System has also been provided to ensure that all communication over the digital radio trunking system is logged, stored and available for retrieval and playback during an audit process.
The DAMM TetraFlex® replaces a P25 system operating in analogue mode. The new system is expected to serve the requirements of the Madhya Pradesh Police during the event and for the next 15 years ahead.
“We are delighted to contribute to ensure safety by providing safe and reliable mission critical communication during a such major event,” said Allan Detlefsen, DAMM’s COO. “The DAMM TetraFlex® Base Station is the perfect choice for this event due to its decentralised architecture and its capability of being installed outdoor – thereby minimizing space required as well as installation costs. The fact that DAMM TetraFlex® allows for communication not only with TETRA terminals but with regular smartphones enables expanded use during as well as after the Simhastha 2016.”
