Intracom Telecom reinforces Morocco's border surveillance with advanced radio equipment
Intracom Telecom, a global telecommunication systems and solutions vendor, announced the supply of its market-leading Point-to-Point microwave (PtP MW) radio, OmniBAS™, to the Border Management Programme for the Maghreb, funded by the EU.
The company undertook the responsibility to deploy the products with local engineering and installation services.
Through the EU Emergency Trust Fund for Africa, the Border Management Programme for the Maghreb, implemented by the International Centre for Migration Policy Development (ICMPD), seeks to improve the Moroccan authorities' capacity to manage their borders, in order to protect vulnerable migrants, deal with irregular migration, and dismantle cross-border criminal networks. Intracom Telecom was selected for the provision of its reliable split-mount OmniBAS™ solution in order to strengthen the Moroccan authorities' capability to meet these challenges.
The Programme is taking advantage of the system's unrivalled capabilities, unparalleled flexibility and outstanding performance to further improve communication and data transfer between the relevant authorities.
The company's OmniBAS™ systems, consisting of high-performance indoor and outdoor (ODU) units, provide leading-edge modulation up to 4096-QAM for high throughput radio communications, support XPIC functionality and maximize the efficiency of the radio resources used.
Christian Chataigner, Commercial Director of Intratelecom Morocco, stated: "Being aware of the heavy migration pressure in Morocco we know how important it is to offer solutions that would efficiently address the issue and support of the Border Management Programme for the Maghreb. We are glad to supply our technology that focuses on upgrading and supporting the Moroccan authorities' network, providing the proper management and control tools for border surveillance."
John Tenidis, Marketing Director of Intracom Telecom's wireless solutions portfolio, commented: "Intracom Telecom's OmniBAS™ split-mount links are the ideal solution to strengthen border management and minimize or even eliminate eventually irregular migration, not only in Morocco but in any country that is facing similar issues. Company's solution has been widely deployed in Europe for critical communication networks and we are confident that we will address this challenging project successfully."
