Twice as much radio traffic on the ASTRID network during WW I memorial ceremonies in Belgium Exceptional security measures for British royal family and VIPs

ASTRID, the Belgian TETRA network operator for emergency and security services, registered significant peaks in radio traffic during the Great War commemorations that were held last Monday (4th August). During large scale events, radio communication constitutes an indispensable aid for the police and emergency services.

ministers and high representatives made exceptional security measures necessary.
Hundreds of agents of the local and federal police, Defence, staff from town and province councils, the fire
brigades, the Civil Defence, the medical services, national and international security personnel were deployed.
