German parliament building in Berlin equipped with BOS digital radio system from CASSIDIAN
30 August 2012
- Indoor digital radio system for German security authorities and organisations (BOS) in German parliament building now completed
- Secure communications assured via universal digital voice and data system BOSNet
Cassidian has set up a complex digital indoor BOS radio system for the German parliament buildings in Berlin. When operations commence in October as planned, the new radio system will ensure secure communications for the operational units of the Berlin Fire Brigade during their missions. The next scheduled step is to migrate the police at the German parliament to the BOS system so that they too can benefit from secure digital communications.
The new digital radio system replaces the existing analogue radio system in the German parliament buildings and is fully integrated in the terrestrial digital radio network for German security authorities and organisations (BOSNet), securing communications between all operational units both inside and outside the premises of the German parliament whenever required.
Full integration of the indoor radio system with the terrestrial radio system guarantees that all active network elements (including repeaters) are monitored, ensuring an immediate response to any need for servicing at any time and with the same quality as for the BOS digital radio system as a whole.
To keep the amount of construction work inside the buildings as low as possible and to ensure uninterrupted communications even during migration from analogue to digital radio, the system was designed in such a way that the majority of the existing antenna cables for the analogue radio system could continue to be used.
