Indonesian Masters 2019, the largest and most prestigious professional golf tournament 8 years in a row in Indonesia was held on 12-15 Dec. at the Royale Jakarta Golf Club in Jakarta. It is the flagship tournament in the Asian Tour, the third largest professional golf tour in the world, and one of only 6 members of the International Federation of PGA Tours. Congratulations to golfer Jazz Janewattananond from Thailand, he finally shot his way to victory and won the championship. Hytera, a leading global provider of professional and private communication network, provided professional communications solution to ensure the smooth operation of this important major event.
There were 144 professional golfers from over 30 countries joined the game, hundreds of media friends and golf fans attended the event. To provide a comfortable and high-grade environment, the facilities in the Royale Jakarta Golf Club included locker rooms, sauna, spa massage area, VIP rooms, a 300-meter practice range with 24 lanes, a short game area and a gallery of shops. Therefore, Hytera radio network provided multiple and stable channels frequencies across the whole golf course and within the facility buildings and other areas.
To ensure success of the game, vast number of working teams had to be established, such as scoring team, rules committee, Asian Tour, operations team, OB Golf (EO), Royale Jakarta Golf Club, media center, Physio, doctor, hospitality, security, etc. An advanced Hytera's digital radio communication network consisting of repeaters, mobile radios and 100 handheld radios were setup and tested prior to the event, in order to make sure staffs from different positions in the facility buildings and in the golf course can communicate with each other clearly and fluently through different channels. Hytera's radios are also compliant with MIL-STD standard and IP54 water-proof, preventing breakdown caused by any incidents. Aside from crystal clear audio and different type of calls, this network also supports messaging, work order management, etc.
