News : Frequentis Starts Emergency Call Centre Trial Ops in Aachen
Aachen, Germany, Sept 14, 2015 -- Austrian high-tech company Frequentis has announced that it is to connect the non-police control centres in North Rhine-Westphalia to BOS digital radio (emergency services).
After the first call in the Aachen city region and the Oberberg district, and after having been equipped and tested by various manufacturers in the six pilot control centres in Aachen, Dusseldorf, Hagen, Kerpen, Mettman and the Oberberg district, trial live operations started on 07 September.
As of this date, all control centres can be connected to BOS digital radio via a digital radio connector.
In December 2013, Frequentis was entrusted to enable the connection of all those control centres to BOS digital radio via a concentrator network. Five equipment rooms have been fitted with concentrators based on the Frequentis Unified Tetra Gateway. Consequently, a much higher number of control centres is able to connect to the digital radio services and they have an increased number of resources available, thanks to the central and common use of this technical feature. The individual authorities connect their system technology via the open, manufacturer-independent and standardised interface, called digital radio connector.
