Encouraged by the growing Tetra (terrestrial trunked radio) market in Lebanon, Airbus Defence and Space and its local value-added reseller Serta Channels SAL have decided to build a certified Tetra terminal repair centre in Beirut.

This step is in line with the Ministry of Interior of Lebanon’s decision to award Airbus Defence and Space and its partner Serta Channels a contract for a digital Tetra radio communication system for the country’s security forces (General Directorate of General Security – GDGS) early this year. The proximity of the repair centre will provide the GDGS’s Tetra terminal users with instant maintenance and repair services.

As part of the country’s ongoing modernisation measures, the new Tetra system is replacing the existing analogue networks. It will be used by more than 3,000 subscribers of the government intelligence services, which ensure national security and public order throughout Lebanon. The new Tetra network will enable security forces to carry out mission-critical communication across sensitive locations in Lebanon, such as airports, seaports and borders. This is essential given the security challenges resulting from the country’s geographical location.

Airbus Defence and Space’s network will be the most advanced Tetra system in Lebanon and offer full coverage across the country. The company also cooperates with Serta Channels in the field of cyber security.

Serta, an information and communication technology solutions provider, was founded in 2009. The company partners with leading vendors to offer a comprehensive portfolio of voice, data and secure communications as well as cybersecurity solutions and professional services for fixed and wireless carriers, government agencies and public sectors. Its main markets include the Middle East, Africa and Turkey.
