The user’s own secure network
ASTRID radio communications operate within pre-programmed talk groups. This means that, to some extent, the user’s organisation has its own network within the common national network. The user can transmit voice and data communications in strict confidentiality thanks to digital communication encryption and terminal authentication, yet at the same time is able to create common talk groups with other services. As part of their respective missions, each user can be included in different talk groups within their own organisation or indeed with other services.
Reliability and availability
The network's architecture is redundant and its capacity is designed to deal with crisis situations. This means that users benefit from maximum availability.
The ASTRID Service Centre monitors the network 24 hours a day, 7 days a week.
