Communicate even in the event of a blackout
Optimization measures are needed for federal transmission stations to ensure widespread communication even in the event of a power grid failure. The Federal Council therefore launched a consultation procedure for a credit of 36.5 million francs for this purpose.
The Federal Customs Administration, which is the main user of the system, has carried out an audit which shows that in the event of a power outage of more than eight hours, the radio coverage in the border area would be severely reduced.
