Beijing government once again relies on the company’s Tetra technology and expertise
Beijing Just Top Network Communications Company Limited has awarded a new contract to
Airbus Defence and Space covering the support and maintenance of the Beijing Government
Shared Tetra Network, which has been in operation since 2003. This three-year contract
includes services such as on-site and emergency support, software maintenance, hardware
repair and a help desk.
“This new contract with our long-term customer in China is the result of a long-standing
relationship built on trust and good cooperation in providing the country’s users with
uninterrupted network performance and quality service since the network was put in place.
And it also illustrates that, in the eyes of our customers, Tetra remains an essential asset for
mission-critical voice communications,” said Nicole Lecca, Head of Secure Land
Communications at Airbus Defence and Space. “Moreover, with our efforts to develop Tetra
we make sure that it will be an integral part of our solutions portfolio for secure
communications in the decades to come.”
The Beijing Government Shared Tetra Network, also known as the “Beijing Just Top Tetra
Network”, is the largest digital trunked network in Asia and the biggest city-wide Tetra
network in the world. It has been expanded five times and now accommodates up to
110,000 users. It covers the Beijing city area, all venues, metro lines and counties, the main
trunk roads and important buildings. Users of the shared network come from different
government agencies, including municipal committees and government/public security
bureaus such as police, fire and ambulance services, communication and water conservancy
departments, and urban management organisations.
Since being set up in 2003, the network has provided communications and services for
numerous large events, including the Beijing Olympic Games in 2008, the celebrations of the
60th National Day in 2009, the APEC CEO Summit in 2014 and important annual national
political meetings and visits of international officials or high-ranking persons.
