TELTRONIC’s NEBULA TETRA system behind secure 2014 Asian Games held in Incheon

Police forces and other public safety agencies involved in the event were backed up by the TETRA communication system supplied by TELTRONIC to guarantee a smooth course of the Games.

Incheon Metropolitan City saw more than 9,500 athletes from 45 countries get together to take part in the XVII edition of the Asian Games, from September 19th to October 4th. With almost 50 venues where to host 439 sport competitions, the city became the true sport capital of the Asian continent during those days, drawing the attention of so many attendees as well as the media.

The city of Incheon has been benefiting from the NEBULA system since 2004. However, such an event like the Asian Games requires the highest public safety standards and coordination to be developed among several agencies. With this goal in mind, the NEBULA system was upgraded with more carriers to bear the increased traffic expected during the Games.

“NEBULAs great flexibility as for scalability has played a key role to meet the new requirements with regard to additional system capacity. As soon as local authorities got in touch with us, we began to define the extension plan to upgrade NEBULA avoiding any service interruption”, reports Kim Chang Hyun, TELTRONIC Sales Manager for APAC.

This NEBULA network extension for the Asian Games in Incheon comes after TELTRONIC also deployed TETRA radio equipment in the football stadium of Maracana for the FIFA World Cup recently held in Brazil. With these two projects, TELTRONIC proves that TETRA is the leading radio technology for major sport competitions, and also that its TETRA NEBULA system can deliver the performance and grade of service expected by local authorities and public safety agencies involved in these kind of events.
