On renewing its radio communications system rental contract with Flash Private Mobile Networks, INOVYN decided to equip its workers with the latest MTP8500Ex TETRA ATEX Portable Radios and to upgrade to the latest technology offered by the Motorola Solutions DIMETRA Express TETRA system.
About the INOVYN solution
Key drivers in the decision to upgrade to DIMETRA Express included having the latest technology and the option for functionality such as Man Down automatic emergency alerting to enhance user safety, as well as the ease of installation and the flexibility for future scalability.
INOVYN was the first company to deploy a Motorola Solutions DIMETRA Express TETRA system in Benelux. The new system has been deployed at its chlorine gas production site in Antwerp; installation and set up was swift and it was operational within 15 minutes. Workers easily adapted to the new radios, as usage was similar to the previous Motorola Solutions TETRA radios.
The rugged MTP8500Ex radios deliver powerful reliable audio, extended battery life, advanced ergonomics and increased usability, ensuring INOVYN’s teams can work safely in the potentially explosive environment at its Antwerp facility; and, although subscribers currently only use the system for individual or group voice communications, INOVYN can start using the extra functionality such as text messaging, VoIP and Man Down in the future. “We have been working in very close collaboration with Flash Private Mobile Networks for over 10 years now. They are a reliable, long-term partner who understands our needs and provides the solutions and services we need to ensure critical communications at our plants. We leave everything connected to the radio networks to them, so we can concentrate on our core business of manufacturing chemicals. And, Flash PMN recommends Motorola Solutions TETRA digital radio systems and subscribers. We have just installed the latest DIMETRA Express system and TETRA ATEX radios. The Motorola equipment is always robust, reliable and user-friendly: just what we need for our business.” said Patrick Ackein, IT Project Manager, INOVYN
Flash provides a fully managed solution for INOVYN with a locally based team of dedicated engineers and account managers for INOVYN; they programmed the system and remotely monitor and manage the system 24/7, offering remote or on-site support. INOVYN has access to a web portal, so it has the option to log and manage returns and repairs online. As part of its rental contract, Flash PMN also replaces all batteries after 30 months of operation.
