Entropia provides Ironman triathlon network coverage [04/08/2016]
The radios were used in combination with Entropia's commercial TETRA network in the Netherlands and the ASTRID Public Safety TETRA network in Belgium. In order to support cross-border communications during the Ironman, Abiom provided a cross-border communication solution. The Entropia and Astrid networks were linked by an ISL, the Tetra interface developed in-house by Abiom. Four groups were used on each network. The communication network was used by the jury, as well as various ambulance, first aid, traffic and other support services. The Ironman triathlon is an annual sporting event comprising a 3.8-km swim, a 180-km cycle and a 42-km run (a full marathon).
