At the beginning of 2018, the Swiss Federal Institute of Technology Zurich (ETH Zurich) launched a call for tenders to implement a new Security Communications network,  incorporating multiple locations into a new, modern radio system. With its extensive know-how in the field of radio communications and a compelling, as well as comprehensive proposal, ErvoCom successfully convinced ETH Zurich and was awarded the contract for this prestigious project. The project includes the development of TETRA based infrastructure including in-house location tracking, radio dispatcher workstations and several alarm transmission features. With the self-developed guardian radio system and the smart Communication Platform (radio dispatcher workstation), many core components have already been developed, which will be customized for this project.  ETH Zurich will thus receive a system tailored to its needs, which corresponds to the most modern technology standard and that can be expanded in a modular way.  A high degree of innovation, greater flexibility to quickly integrate customer requirements and greater quality awareness have led to ErvoCom being awarded the contract for the new Security Communications System.
