Continuously evolving

The INPT network has been in operation since 1994, and is continuously evolving:

  • New sites have been added in the Paris metropolitan area to improve the radio coverage above 95%,
  • Additional coverage has been built for the naval departments,
  • Network has been migrated to IP connectivity and is thus future-proof.

The INPT network comprises 300 switches and 1,500 Tetrapol base stations in the 380-400 MHz frequency range.
