- Deployment of Agnet 900 and Tactilon Dabat in line with Kuwaiti Government’s transition from narrowband to broadband networks
Kuwait. 04 August 2020 . With the Kuwaiti Government fast transitioning from narrowband to broadband networks, Airbus has shown strong support for the move through increased deployment in the country of its secure communication and collaboration solutions, specifically Tactilon Agnet 900 and Tactilon Dabat.
Agnet 900 and Tactilon Dabat are currently being rolled-out across local public safety entities in Kuwait to help strengthen their mission-critical communication systems. Concerned authorities will benefit from Airbus TETRA network and infrastructure by using their advanced multimedia capabilities such as photo and video services to boost collaborative efforts.
Agnet 900 is a reliable collaboration platform that enables rapid communication among teams wherever they are and whatever devices they use. Kuwaiti officials can fully maximize Agnet 900’s protected voice, multimedia messaging, video and real-time location tracking and reporting services for more systematic and seamless coordination.
Tactilon Dabat, a smartphone and a TETRA radio in one, is for Kuwaiti personnel who require high security in their communication. It operates on both TETRA and LTE/4G networks. Users can optimize the device’s video, text, voice data and location tracking and reporting features to connect with their team members anytime, anywhere. The weatherproof Tactilon Dabat also allows multitasking on its big and bright screen.
During the current coronavirus disease (COVID-19) pandemic, the solutions give local authorities mobility and access to key features, including group tracking and team management, from anywhere as long as internet connection is available. This makes team efforts during these unprecedented times more sound and solid as the government battles the still raging global health crisis.
Andrew Forbes, Head of Middle East and North Africa region for Secure Land Communications at Airbus, said: “Kuwait is steadily moving ahead with its digital transformation initiatives as part of its development plan. One of the efforts is intensified adoption of secure communication platforms based on broadband technology as the government steadily moves away from the traditional system.”
“In terms of national defense, public security and emergency management, a digital communication system will help reinforce quick coordination among concerned bodies, most especially during critical moments. Airbus solutions are capable of guaranteeing a smoother connection and facilitating better communication structure for public organizations whose mission-critical mandate is to maintain safety and security,” Forbes added.
