Airbus has helped ensure the safe hosting of the FIFA World Cup 2022 as communication technology partner of the global sporting event in Qatar.
Airbus deployed its mission-critical communication and collaboration solutions for use by security, public safety, and emergency personnel assigned to different key points and areas in, and around the stadiums and the metro.
The resilient Tetra network, the TactilonDabat terminals, as well as more than 20,000 reliable radios, and TactilonAgnet were usedto secure various areas, and guarantee the safety of the international football teams and spectators.
Security personnel and first responders, including 5,000 policemen, benefitted from the technologies’ multimedia-enriched features such as video and text and voice messaging as well as emergency calls and location tracking.
“In any mega events such as the World Cup, collaboration is key in the area of security and safety. Our mission-critical solutions helped connect the first responders during the football tournament, giving them the possibility to carry out their jobs efficiently,” Selim Bouri, Vice-president for Airbus Secure Land Communications in Africa, Asia and the Middle East, explained.
