After years of operation, the Port of Antwerp upgraded two of their Omnitronics DX-64 Radio Management Systems to the DX-Altus Dispatch Management. As one of the busiest ports in the world, it was imperative that the upgrade be conducted in a timely and efficient manner. In addition, new features such as Night Mode and Improved Selcall Management added significant value to the system.

With over 200 million tonnes of freight transported through the port in 2015, efficient communications management is crucial to Port of Antwerp’s success. Not only does the port manage sea vessel traffic, it also interconnects other forms of transport including by road, barge, rail and pipeline. As such, Port of Antwerp required a radio
system that could handle a large volume of voice traffic in an efficient, reliable and easy to manage way. With the ability to manage over 160 channels across differing radio technologies, the DX-Altus has met this challenge.
