The Challenge

  • hytera-image

    The Mendoza province has a difficult but unique topographic condition. Some remote area like the towns of Cacheuta and Guido Curve are seriously isolated and hard to be connected due to their inconveniently geographical location surrounded by high mountains. First responders in these towns have difficulties in coordinating their operational and tactical resources when emergencies happen.

    As part of the modernization program, the Bureau wanted to upgrade the communication and incident recording solutions available to customs staff. It wanted to implement a body worn camera (BWC) system to provide daily recordings and real time viewing capabilities.

    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

Hytera has deployed a TETRA network in Mendoza, Argentina to help improve the radio communications in border and mountain area. The TETRA solution provided to Mendoza government includes 53 units of Hytera DIB-R5 and outdoor base station and 5,000 units of Sepura handheld radios as well as PTT Connect, an interconnection communications software which enables interoperability between TETRA network and public broadband network.
