Rohill secures further expansion of the Public Safety network in Uruguay

The Ministry of Interior in Uruguay signed a contract with Rohill for another significant expansion of their current mission-critical Public Safety TetraNode TETRA network. The upgrade includes the first phase of the expansion of the touristic coastal area of Uruguay. The existing TetraNode network already covers the city of Montevideo, as well as Canelones, greater Montevideo and San José areas. The expanded network will cover the area of more than 60% of the total Uruguayan population.

Uruguay is home to 3.4 million people, of whom 1.8 million live in the metropolitan area of its capital and largest city, Montevideo. The Uruguay Ministry of Interior, based in Montevideo, is amongst others responsible for national security and emergency management. The TetraNode network of the Ministry of Interior in Uruguay is relied on by 3,400 police officers, and handles more than 30,000 voice calls and more than 110,000 short data messages per day.

The network expansion will be executed by Rohill partner STC Americana S.A. and is scheduled to be completed in the last quarter of 2016.

JP Ramos, Regional Sales Director in South America, commented “We are very pleased to see that TetraNode technology has been embraced by many end-users in this region of the world, and especially the Uruguay Ministry of Interior project confirms that TetraNode is the right solution for Public Safety applications as well”. Also, “The extension order is further proof that the Uruguay Ministry of Interior is committed to migrate more analogue radio users to TETRA”.
