Lifesavers in action
Radio Communication is the backbone of every emergency response, from car accidents to floods. Swisscom Broadcast ensures that public authorities, emergency services and rescue services can count on reliable channels of communication.
The police, fire department, emergency medical services and army need to be able to communicate smoothly in emergency situations. Swisscom Broadcast sets up and operates secure radio networks on behalf of various public authorities and organisations that provide emergency medical and rescue services (BORS) specifically for such situations. We also established and now operate POLYCOM, the nationwide police radio network, and offer professional digital private radio solutions to customers from the industrial, energy, transport and events sectors.
Our core expertise is the planning, construction and operation of nationwide radio facilities, and in recent years we have implemented several secure radio network projects from beginning to end. Our solutions and operating processes are characterised by a very high level of availability. Our Network Management Centre (NMC) monitors every network element 24 hours a day, 7 days a week. Our comprehensive nationwide coverage means that if anything goes wrong, our specialists can intervene on site immediately. All our employees undergo security checks by the Federal Department for Defence, Civil Protection and Sport (VBS) in accordance with the ‘AIOS personnel security check for third parties’.
All our services are also offered as part of a business model. We work with you in close collaboration to precisely define the requirements that the solution must meet. We handle the planning, construction and financing of the required network, take responsibility for its operation and ensure that the technology is kept up to date. So you won’t have to worry about a thing.
Our Customer Care Centre (CCC) is available 24 hours a day, 7 days a week, in case you have any questions, need to report a fault or require a quote: 0800 817 620.
