EDF Group, a world leader in the electricity industry, has chosen Hub One, the digital technologies operator for businesses, for optimising the professional mobile radio coverage of its energy production sites in France, by expanding its catalogue of wireless technologies.
In France EDF has many production sites, each with their own particular characteristics. With the objective of optimising the performance of its professional mobile radio infrastructures, the Group wanted to procure the latest available technologies in order to implement on its industrial sites the solution most suitable, both technically and financially.
Backed by its expertise as a telecoms operator in professional environments, Hub One proposed a DMR (Digital Mobile Radio) solution in compliance with ETSI standards and complementing the existing TETRA networks of the EDF Group. In the framework of projects involving the deployment of DMR, Hub One supplies the technical equipment and manages on-site maintenance of equipment and infrastructures.
“Optimising the PMR coverage of our sensitive sites is essential for the EDF Group. Thanks to its technological expertise in PMR systems, Hub One was able to win us over, and offer us a DMR solution suited to our geographical and technical constraints,” says Antoine Guibert, TCM Expert, EDF – DNP – DAIP – UNITEP.
“We are delighted to support the EDF Group on such a project,” adds Bertrand Laurioz, Telecom Division Director, Hub One. “The deployment of the DMR networks will allow the Group to optimise considerably its wireless coverage, and address the specific challenges of each of its industrial sites concerned.”
