Macedonian narrowband network upgrade


Hytera has been awarded the contract to expand the nationwide TETRA network for public safety in the Republic of North Macedonia.

According to the company, the focus of the expansion is a complete upgrade of the system to its ACCESSNET-T IP technology. The deployment is being carried out in collaboration with Hytera’s local partner, Saga MK.

The expansion package also includes a Sepura helmet radio solution, specifically for police officers on motorcycles.

Speaking of the roll-out, Hytera sales director for east and south Europe, Tsvetomir Benchev, said: "This [deployment] means that police and security forces will be communicating completely via an IP-based solution. In addition to the upgrade of the existing system, more than 20 additional base stations are being deployed.

“With the upgrade, police and security forces in the field will benefit from more radio capacity and extended coverage. The ACCESSNET-T system was previously extended in 2012.”
