Airbus will modernise and expand STEAG’s (a German energy supplier and services company) seNet secure TETRA network, replacing its core technology with Taira TETRA servers, thereby increasing its capacity and making it more reliable and efficient.

Airbus will also service the network and maintain it under a five-year contract. seNet’s legacy base stations will be replaced with those using Airbus’s TB3 technology and the whole network will be expanded through a step-by-step process , in line with STEAG's requirements.

STEAG operates its seNet TETRA communication system in Germany’s Ruhr area and makes its secure communication services available to other organisations such as industrial companies, public administrations, fire-fighters, and rescue services.

“Thanks to its expertise, Airbus has equipped energy suppliers worldwide with highly secure communication systems. STEAG in Germany benefits from our experience and uses state-of-the-art technology that can improve the company's overall operations,” said Markus Kolland, head of sales for Northern, Central and Eastern Europe for Secure Land Communications at Airbus.
