Hytera to Facilitate Cajamarca Police in Peru with TETRA System

Minera Yanacocha S.R.L. has chosen Hytera Mobilfunk GmbH Sucursal del Perú to supply and install a new, highly modern TETRA system and an emergency command & control center for Cajamarca City.

In line with its principles of social responsibility, Minera Yanacocha S.R.L. is to procure the TETRA communication system to donate it to the Peruvian national police force.

Along with the police, it will also be used by other public safety organizations in the city of Cajamarca. The obsolete emergency call center (105) will also be modernized and replaced with a highly modern emergency call and control center to provide the people of the historic city of Cajamarca and its visitors with a faster, more reliable emergency service at any time of the day or night. 

"We are pleased to support, together with Minera Yanacocha S.R.L., the city of Cajamarca in the modernization of their communication system. With Hytera, Minera Yanacocha has a strong partner who can address the growing requirements of the market," says Luis Pérez, Head of Hytera Perú.

Along with these measures, the city will also be equipped with a web-based AVL system for vehicle location and monitoring. The proven TETRA radios from Hytera will also be used in the city. Along with 100 PT580H handheld radios, 21 MT680 Plus mobile radios are also part of the modernization program.  

"This new TETRA network in Peru underlines Hytera's strong position in South America and shows how we can help to improve mission-critical communication worldwide," emphasizes Frank Pauer, Deputy CSO at Hytera Mobilfunk.
