With high speed of economic development, our society needs more efficient, secure, stable and flexible emergency command communication network. The existing analog system cannot satisfy new requirements under new economic environment. Thus, building a digital trunking radio government affairs network is not only a trend of technology development, but also a requirement of social management. 

Radio government affairs network is a shared professional communication system. In 2001, Nanning government adopted analog technology to build the first citywide emergency union action radio command system in China. Later on, digital trunking radio government affairs network have been successfully deployed in Beijing, Shanghai, Guangzhou, Chengdu, etc. 

Before 2010, core technology of digital trunking system was monopolized by foreign companies. Market was monopolized and information security cannot be guaranteed. How to break the monopolization was highly important. Eastcom took the responsibility bravely and successfully developed the first TETRA system with independent intellectual property rights in 3 years. This system deployed in many projects in a short time, such as “Hang Zhou Digital Trunking Radio Government Affairs Network Project”, “Shen Yang 350M Public Security Digital Trunking System Project”, “Da Lian Radio Management Bureau 800M TETRA Digital Trunking Communication System Project”, etc. Forced foreign providers adjust its strategy in China market. Based on information security and strategic new industry development, Hang Zhou government decided to use Eastcom eTRA­­ digital trunking system after research and comparing both aboard and domestic cases.

“Hang Zhou Digital Trunking Radio Government Affairs Network” is the core facility of “City Emergency Union Action Command System”, which is an important part of HangzhouSmart City” project.. As key technical support platform of emergency communication and society management, this network provides an unified command dispatching communication platform for city hall, public security, judiciary, military, city administration, traffic control, firemen, etc.

This ceremony was supported and reported by a lot national, provincial, municipal media, such as CCTV, Xinhua News Agency, Economic Daily, Zhe Jiang Satellite TV, Hang Zhou TV, Hang Zhou Daily and Qian Jiang Evening.
