This pioneer project, led by France, is key to modernising domestic security forces which are still using narrowband technologies Today (Tetrapol). The Réseau Radio du Futur will be a national, secure and high-speed (4G and 5G) priority mobile communication system, with a high level of resilience in order to guarantee the continuum of security and emergency rescue missions on a daily basis, including in the event of a crisis or major event.
The RRF intends to equip up to 300,000 users in the security and emergency rescue forces, such as the national gendarmerie, the national police force, firefighters and other civil security forces. It will allow these users to benefit from many new data-centred services, such as video, in particular (via MCVideo).
With the RRF, the Ministry of the Interior modernises the tools it provides the security and emergency rescue forces to help them carry out their daily missions as well as major diplomatic or sporting events. It represents a new chapter dedicated to improving increasingly complex interventions.
The RRF deployment will make France one of the 5 pioneering countries providing its security and emergency forces with new generation communication tools. Among them, there is the United Kingdom with the ESN network and the ESMCP project, the United States with FirstNet, Finland with Virve 2.0 and South Korea with SafeNet.
The RRF is a major digital transformation project for the French Ministry of the Interior. It is part of the orientation and programming law of the Ministry of the Interior 2022-2027 (LOPMI) that will give to the State modern means to manage present and future crises (public order, delinquency and crime, civil security crises).
October 13, 2022, the consortium led by Airbus and Capgemini was selected by the French Ministry of the Interior and Overseas territories for the role of Package 2 integrator for the Réseau Radio du Futur (RRF – radio network of the future).
A signing ceremony was organized that same day at the Ministry of the Interior ("Place Beauvau" - Paris) in the presence of Mr. Gérald Darmanin, Minister of the Interior, Mr. Guillaume Faury (CEO of Airbus), Mr. William Rozé (GM of Capgemini Engineering), Mr. Benoit Torloting (GM of Bouygues Telecom), Mr. Gervais Pellissier (Associate GM of Orange) and Mr. Yannick Tricaud (Head of Southern Europe Region at Atos) as well as other guests.

The consortium led by Airbus and Capgemini relies on a wide variety of partners such as Dell Technologies, Econocom, Ericsson, Prescom, Samsung and Streamwide in order to offer a unique solution to France and meet the needs of French security forces, in short-term as well as in long-term.
The consortium is thus mobilized alongside users to support them in the gradual deployment of these new technologies in the coming years.
For the RRF deployment, security and emergency forces can rely on Airbus' expertise in broadband critical communications solutions (MC-X).
The Airbus' advanced and critical collaboration solution, Tactilon Agnet, has been awarded "MC-X Solution of the Year" at this year's ICCA Awards: Read the press release for more info.
Airbus' professional communication and collaboration solutions are suitable for mission-critical and business criticals, as well as for various players in industry, transport or energy.
With Airbus, you are guaranteed to benefit from a durable, secure and highly resilient solution.
