Three questions for Loic Zurcher, Head of Electrical Services, and Andrés Cabezas, member of the Special Projects team at BYES Prilly, who developed the building’s radio infrastructure alongside their team of specialists.
What’s special about this system?
We had to meet very specific technical requirements. The nature of emergency services means that their systems need to be extremely reliable. They need to be able to respond to people’s calls at all times, and also to react in the case of a major accident or disaster. Redundancy and upgradability were therefore particularly important.
What’s distinctive about our radio communication and mobile telephony services?
Unlike mobile operators who offer their own system, our multi-operator solution combines mobile technology with the Polycom network. Every project is different for us and requires specific expertise in the relevant technology and operational requirements. We offer solutions that are tailored to our clients’ professional needs.
What was the main challenge of the project?
It’s not every day that we have to develop a system of this scale. We needed 4 km of cables to connect the rooftop antennae alone. There aren’t many providers on the market that would be able to handle a project of this size.
