In 2006, the group was selected to supply the nationwide TETRA network. The Jordanian national network aims to provide Jordan Armed Forces, public safety, police security agencies and the civil defense with a reliable, secure and easy-to-use communications system. With more than 160 base stations and 30,000 users, the fully distributed TETRA network will be in operation by the end of 2012.
The multiagency network will integrate the air ground air (AGA) communications feature, making Jordan one of the first nations in the region with the capabilities. Communications between aircraft and ground users will increase the services provided to citizens.
Equipped with a distributed architecture and an IP routing capability, the network functionality enables users across different organizations to operate on the same network.
