KFUPM University, Kingdom of Saudi Arabia
Hytera DMR Serves King Fahd University of Petroleum & Minerals
King Fahd University of Petroleum & Minerals (KFUPM) was established on 23th September, 1963. KFUPM is the leading university for science and technology and provides the best education in Saudi Arabia. Each year, KFUPM trains and sends qualified personnel to the most famous companies, like
Saudi Aramco, SABIC(Saudi Arabia Basic Infrastructure Company), also to many other GCC countries. KFUPM used MPT system before, but they were not satisfied with the outdated system. In early 2016, Hytera provided Hytera DMR Trunking Lite Solution for KFUPM.
In daily operation, KFUPM leaders and staffs worked with a MPT radio system. However they found the voice quality was not good, especially when they were near the boundary of coverage and system lacked data service.
The customer wanted to build a safe & reliable digital communication network integrated with their existing telephone system, in which radios work together with their mobiles. Besides that, they also required more functions like AVL, visualized dispatching system, and voice recording system for
playback. In addition, customers also required heavy duty terminals suitable for the dusty and hot weather in KSA to support their daily work.
After the discussion with the customers and a detailed on-site survey, Hytera got to know the main requirements of the customer. In order to meet all of them, Hytera provided a full DMR solution.
Hytera provided a full-redundancy Base Station, with BSCU hot-standby, PSU, MCCH redundancy and UPS solution to guarantee the security and reliability of the system.
To ensure the safety, Hytera also provided the system with Authentication, ESN check, and AES 256 bits Encryption. Besides that, Hytera provides NMS, DWS, Voice Recording System and some other feature as some individual customer needs, like kill, stun, revive, etc.
To integrate with the telephone system, Hytera provided PSTN/PABX gateway and SMS alarm modem, which can send alarming message to mobiles.
