New Delhi: The Delhi Government has partnered with HCL Infosystems and Motorola to deploy 100 crore radio network based on the Terrestrial Trunked Radio (TETRA) technology to run the Commonwealth Games 2010, scheduled to begin in New Delhi this October, smoothly.

This network will link 18 government agencies seamlessly, including the police, fire services, hospitals, public works department and the Delhi Transport Corporation. George Paul, Executive Vice President of HCL Infosystems said, "The network for the Commonwealth Games has been designed to minimise the reaction time in the toughest of situations, ensuring minimal call drops (since cellular networks can get choked) and encrypted communication to maintain the highest levels of security."

The government radio network is an advanced digital interoperable communication platform that will operate on a secure spectrum and have 46 base stations. It will cover the entire metropolitan area of India's capital, including transportation networks such as Delhi Metro Railway Tunnels and New Delhi Airport Terminal-II. HCL and Motorola have a seven-year contract with the government for the same.

1: A very good initiative.This same radio network infra structure and related solutions can also be reused for other emergency situations.Wireless video surveillance systems can add additional security to this infrastructure and I feel they are very much needed in our metros.
