Rustam Minnikhanov, the President of the Republic of Tatarstan, a federal subject of Russia, recently visited Hytera at the International Petroleum Youth Forum in Russia.

The International Petroleum Youth Forum has been held from July 9 to July 15 on the premises of the Yunost children's recreation camp of the Tatneft Company in Almetyevsk (Republic of Tatarstan), Russia. Industry experts, young professionals, and scientists of Russia and neighboring countries attended the forum and discussed development of oil and gas industry together. Hytera showcased its cutting-edge PMR-LTE convergence solutions at its booth during the forum.

The highlights were Hytera multi-mode terminals PTC760 and PTC680, RVM, and Hytera and Sepura TETRA radio in explosion-proof performance, which attracted many visitors including Rustam Minnikhanov, the President of the Republic of Tatarstan, a federal subject of Russia.

In 2018, Tatneft, one of the largest Russian oil companies, equipped more than 1,200 Hytera multi-mode terminals. The main requirement of Tatneft in this project was to ensure continuous monitoring of employees’ implementation of the work plan. To deal with the challenge, Hytera offered Tatneft its unique Hytera convergent solution: Hytera multi-mode radio PTC760 and a specialized application installed on the portable radio with an Android system and the ability to simultaneously work in 3 networks of LTE, Wifi, and TETRA. The application could communicate with the control center via LTE and Wifi networks. When in the absence of coverage, the application can also ensure exchange data via the TETRA network.
