The Bahrain International Circuit Organisation used Bahrain’s extended Tetra network infrastructure, provided by Airbus, to secure the 5,412-kilometre international race circuit and to ensure a smooth organisation and coordination between teams.

 

The event organisation employees and security teams therefore benefited from Airbus’ reliable Tetra technology such as the THR880i, and the TMR880i radios, as well as additional network capacity for the racing site. These solutions are used in areas where the level of security is critical, such as for overall event security, and the monitoring of the race itself to ensure the safety of the competitors and everyone on premises.

 

“Large events, such as the Formula 1 races, massively draw people’s attention on the Arabian peninsula. To keep the Bahrain Grand Prix safe and well-organised, the implementation of a reliable and resilient Airbus Tetra system was primordial,” said Selim Bouri, vice-president and head of Middle East, North Africa and Asia Pacific for Secure Land Communications at Airbus. “It is always an honour to serve the organising committee of this Grand Prix with our technology.”
