The Challenge

  • hytera-image

    With a capacity of over 20,000 and ranked as the eighth largest arena in Europe, a top priority for the AccorHotels Arena is the safety, security and enjoyment of everyone who steps foot inside the venue. 

    Due to the large site, the range of working groups and busy, ever-changing environments, the arena management knew that they wanted a solution which would facilitate instant but clear communication between all employees anytime, anywhere.

    AccorHotels approached Paris based Hytera partner Alphacom Sud with four key objectives in mind:
    -Clear communication coverage in all areas of the large site

    -High audio quality in often noisy environments

    -Capacity to dynamically manage call traffic across nine different teams

    -Ability to instantly respond in an emergency situation

    Alphacom Sud is experienced in implementing professional communications solutions across large facilities and multiple user groups, and worked with the AccorHotels Arena team to implement a mixed fleet of Hytera handsets, repeaters and applications.

    The BWC solution was needed to capture video evidence, so the footage could be used to review incidents. BOC also wanted to deploy BWCs at ports throughout the Philippine archipelago to enhance its monitoring activities.

The Solution

Over the past year, the AccorHotels Arena has adopted Hytera technology and has integrated the digital handsets across the operational team. At the heart of this operation is DMR Smart dispatch, an essential application for managing and coordinating users on the network, working in conjunction with Hytera XPT, extended pseudo trunking, to improve the capacity and effectively manage call traffic.


With three MD78X base stations, ninety PD60X handsets and ten PD66Xs, the Hytera estate is significant, and can scale up depending on the needs of each event. Digital technology simplifies and improves operations.


Security, both for staff and the public, is of utmost importance to the management team at the AccorHotels Arena. Hytera's expertise and leading products in this domain ensure the facility working groups can operate in confidence. Clear, critical communications with full site coverage at the touch of a button ensures that the well-being of staff and visitors is never in doubt.


Hytera continues to develop innovative solutions to meet the changing demands of major event arenas such as the AccorHotels Arena, with their authorised partner Alphacom Sud, they are looking to work with other critical venues across France.
