Multimillion dollar contract in CIS regionBarrett Communications has been awarded a multi-million dollar contract from a government agency in the CIS region.

The project was both sensitive and critical in nature. The turnkey network design team provided in-country inspections and testing and worked with the client to meet the unique requirements of this communications infrastructure project.

The equipment to be supplied includes secure 1 kW high power base stations, comprising operator receiver sites in existing command rooms and remotely controlled transmitter sites linked via digital microwave and interfacing to existing third party equipment.

Mr Greg O’Neill, managing director of Barrett Communications, said: "I am pleased the contract has been awarded. It represents many months of negotiations and the combined knowledge of our turnkey network design team to supply highly complex packages designed to meet the client’s exact requirements."

This contract included all equipment, masts, installation and commissioning support.

The team will continue to work closely with the client to provide in country training, spare parts, tools and test equipment.
