TETRA beats the big chill
Tomskneft produces oil and gas in the Tomsk and Tyumen regions of West Siberia.
There, temperatures can drop as low as -40 degrees centigrade, making it one of the most demanding environments in the world.
To manage its operations in these extreme temperatures, Tomskneft's employees use a TETRA radio system delivered by Airbus.
Despite the harsh conditions, the TETRA radio system delivers trouble-free communications, Tomskneft reports.
In 2003, Tomskneft awarded Airbus a contract to modernise its digital security TETRA radio network. The project completed the experimental Airbus network already implemented, replacing the existing analog network.
Airbus teamed up with T-Helper, its value-added reseller in Russia, to implement the radio network, which comprises 2 switches and 22 base stations.
Tomskneft was the first Airbus TETRA customer in Russia.
