NATO Conference 2014 - Wales

NATO Summit – Wales

The World Comes to Wales

This year Wales hosted the largest gathering of international leaders ever to take place in Britain at the NATO summit on 4 to 5 September 2014.

Following the success of our radio communications system at the 2013 G8 Summit, they approached us to install a completely reliable and secure radio system for this historic event.

All Nato’s 28 member countries were represented, with 4,000 delegates attending amid a security operation unprecedented in Britain.

Airphone provided over 400 radios with a multi site radio communications system covering a distance of over 25 kilometres using a combination of Motorola DP3600 and DP4400 digital portable radios.

In order to accommodate the large number of users, our engineering staff provided system design, supply and installation with multi-site links, enabling simultaneous communications between the command and control centre and supervisory radios.

To expand the radio system further, ‘Linked Capacity Plus’ offered an effective multi-site trunking solution. This advanced technology extended the capacity to well over 1,000 users, without the need to add new frequencies.
