TETRA Solution for Rio Olympics Communication Success
SIRCE, Rio de Janeiro state’s integrated radio critical communication system, will play a vital role in communications at the Rio Olympics, supporting more than 18,000 police radios. SIRCE, provided by Teltronic, is part of the Sepura group.
Base stations with up to 12 TETRA transceivers will support high traffic loads throughout the event; a CeCoCo Control Centre will support over 100 dispatch operators; and Teltronic’s Synchronous Data Manager application will pare down the GPS refresh time in AVL applications.
At the International Critical Communication Awards the SIRCE solution has been awarded:
- Best Use of Control Room Systems – winner
- Best use of TETRA for Public Safety – finalist
- Green Technology – finalist
- Excellence in Radio Sites and Services – finalist
“Rio de Janeiro now has one of the most modern and intelligent integrated critical communications systems in the world, enabling uninterrupted contact in case of emergency,” said Security Secretary Jose Mariano Beltrame.
Superintendent of Critical Communications at the Security Secretariat of the State, Colonel Alexandre Corval, commented: “We are confident that this extension to the existing Teltronic TETRA system will optimise our mission critical communications, enhancing the security of both visitors and employees throughout Rio 2016.”
