As well as its support to Bravo, Airbus has successfully contributed to the smooth running of this year’s Muslim pilgrimage in the vicinity of Mecca in Saudi Arabia with resilient radio communications technology.

Airbus provided local and independent radio networks for its partner and critical telecommunications provider Bravo to cover events during the Hajj pilgrimage event. Bravo supported a governmental client in the western part of the Kingdom of Saudi Arabia from 30 August to 4 September 2017.

Bravo and Airbus supplied proven Tetra infrastructure technology, such as DXTs switches and base stations, and Tetra devices. Bravo’s client and other governmental entities used the latest network from Airbus, while engineers and experts supported Bravo to monitor and operate the secure radio infrastructure and the applications successfully.

As well as its support to Bravo, Airbus has successfully contributed to the smooth running of this year’s Muslim pilgrimage in the vicinity of Mecca in Saudi Arabia with resilient radio communications technology.

The Muslim pilgrimage to Mecca, called “Hajj”, is one of the largest gatherings in the world. Its organisation entails growing logistic challenges, as the number of pilgrims has increased in recent years. This year, more than 2 million Muslims gathered in Mecca. This has led the Saudi government to arrange new security measures to protect believers.

The public telecommunications company “Bravo” is the only licensed operator in the Kingdom of Saudi Arabia providing governmental, industrial and commercial sectors with services and solutions addressing instant collective wireless communications.
