G6 Global, specialist consultants and providers of digital communications equipment including radio and satellite, has established its own private radio communications network in London, on a dedicated frequency bandwidth, to alleviate problems associated with operating secure two-way radio communications within the capital.
For a small, select, number of specialist security, counter-terror, close protection and surveillance teams, including a major high-street bank’s high level staff protection team, the network provides secure communications without problems associated with some networks in London and offers high audio quality, wider communication coverage and a higher level of security than some previously available networks. G6 is restricting the number of users to ensure low contention rates and therefore guarantee service availability.
Commenting on the development, Andrew Clark, Managing Director of G6 Global said; “While the focus is currently on the Olympic Games, London has always presented a difficult operating environment for secure two-way communications due to the sheer volume of traffic and shortage of radio spectrum.
G6 plans to upgrade the network to provide further availability as required, but it will still be restricted to high level secure requirements.
In addition, G6 provides a range of handsets and equipment. Majoring on Hytera products, the company is also able to provide a wide range of options from other manufacturers including Icom, Motorola and Kenwood.
