French motorway comms roll-out
Airbus has provided interim critical communications to the Paris Rhine Rhône Motorway Group, as part of the latter’s Axelia project, upgrading the RN79 road into a motorway.
Speaking of the project, Airbus vice president, Thierry Becker, said: “This shows the complementarity of group communication services based on 4G on the one hand, and radio technologies on the other. Our portfolio of Tactilon solutions and services fully meet this need, providing high flexibility and interoperability."
Road operator APRR already uses an Airbus TETRA network, covering around 2,300 kilometers of motorway. The RN79 runs between the French cities of Sazeret and Digoin.
