Airbus has achieved a new milestone in the critical communications business with a recent partnership with Vertel, an Australian based global award winning critical network solutions provider to enterprise and Government. Signed in October, this collaboration paves the way for the introduction of Airbus' Agnet MCx mission-critical communication and collaboration solution on the Australian market.

Airbus Agnet MCx is a standardized, flexible and a future-proof solution as a service-based platform for meeting all critical communication needs by leveraging the benefits of cloud technology, mobile or private broadband (4G/5G technology) and satellite communication. Airbus Agnet MCx can acquire and transmit secure data, video and voice to all relevant stakeholders at once in a secure and reliable way. It allows two-way radio device, smartphone, tablet and laptop users to communicate individually, or in a group. 

With the introduction of the Agnet solution in Australia, Airbus will help to improve the country’s ability to manage emergencies, risks and threats, thereby contributing to the mission-critical management of national and local companies and security forces. 

“Airbus is involved in leading broadband based critical communication projects across the globe, especially in Europe, such as BroadWay and Radio Network of the future (RRF) in France. With the Public Safety Mobile Broadband PSMB program moving forward in Australia, we expect and anticipate a similar transition in this market as well. We want to bring all the leading global innovations and standardized solutions in collaboration with Australian partners to the critical communications user community”, explains Selim Bouri, VP & Head of APAC & MEAI regions for Airbus Secure Land Communications. 

“As one of the leading radio communications and critical network solution providers   in Australia, Vertel is proud to have enabled the deployment of the Agnet MCx solution in collaboration with Airbus SLC. The solution will be cloud hosted within Australian territory and is a real breakthrough for our Mission-critical communications offering to our Government & Enterprise customers. They will now have flexibility to start using Mission Critical services on subscription basis, with a minimum upfront investment and without the need to wait for heavy infrastructure deployment. It's a first step, but I am sure it will open the door to an array of possibilities in Public Safety, Defence, Utilities and Transport verticals”, said Mr. Theo Belekas, Managing Director Vertel.
