Switzerland selects RUAG’s telephony solution
RUAG’s TTEL telephony solution has been selected as part of Switzerland’s key ICT voice system of the armed forces (VSdA) project, the company announced on 9 April.
The autonomous, tactical and independently operated communication system enables secure command level voice communications. TTEL enables users to set up and operate a telephony system with a decentralised directory for maximum flexibility and security. All users, regardless of their physical location, can be reached permanently on a secure line.
Under the terms of the contract, RUAG will also carry out installation and maintenance of the system.
With the VSdA project, the Federal Department of Defence, Civil Protection and Sport will support the Swiss armed forces’ command capability in all situations. The project also includes the procurement of a secure, militia-compatible telephony solution for a dedicated group of users.
