HCL Infosystems, in partnership with Motorola, a player in the mission-critical government radio networks space, has announced the win of a prestigious project worth approximately Rs 100 cr from the Delhi Government to establish the country’s first exclusive Government Radio Network (GRN). This TETRA (TErrestrial Trunked RAdio) communication network will facilitate swift and secure communication among various government agencies like the Delhi Police, Fire Services, Hospitals, Public Works Department and the Delhi Transport Corporation during the Commonwealth Games and beyond.
"The deployment of the Government Radio Network based on TETRA will not only enhance our communication infrastructure but will also firmly place New Delhi amongst the leading cities of the world. If the Asiad brought a shift from black & white television to colour television, the 2010 games will see the advent of TETRA, which will open a new chapter of secured and efficient communication between various government agencies," said Savitur Prasad, Secretary, Information Technology, Delhi Government.
HCL Infosystems and Motorola will jointly collaborate with all Delhi government departments to deploy a secure communication network for seamless inter-department communication. This network would cover the entire metropolitan area of the capital, including transportation networks such as Delhi Metro Railway Tunnels and New Delhi Airport Terminal-II. The GRN has been designed to minimise the reaction time in the toughest of situations, ensuring minimal call drops and encrypted communication to maintain the highest levels of security.
The GRN is an advanced digital inter-operable communication platform that will operate on a secured spectrum and will have 46 base stations. Communication on the GRN is encrypted to ensure security, and unlike other public communication infrastructure, this network is specially designed and built robustly to ensure failsafe performance even during emergencies. The GRN will help multiple agencies collaborate over a single platform to ensure a co-ordinated & optimum response. In the long run, the GRN will continue to offer options of scalability with easy expansion through additional radio terminals.
