A stable and highly available radio link is essential for the emergency forces of the authorities and organizations with security tasks (BOS). The availability of BOS digital radio is required not only in the open field, but also inside buildings.
Digital object radio supply systems (OV systems) are radio systems for buildings that are set up and operated on the basis of the TETRA radio standard. They are used where the BOS digital radio network is not available with sufficient signal strength inside the building.
The building owner or operator is responsible for the planning, installation and operation of an OV system. Within the framework of a building permit procedure or due to other regulations under public law, they can be obliged to install or retrofit an OV system. The design of the OV system is generally based on the specifications of the requesting BOS.
For general questions about OV installations and the OV notification procedure in Bavaria, their central point of contact is the Bavarian Authorized Body (AS BY).
The AS BY accompanies the notification procedure specified or prescribed by the Federal Agency for Digital Radio of Security Authorities and Organizations (BDBOS).
By defining the connection to the BOS digital radio network and checking by means of radio measurements whether specified parameters have been complied with when setting up OV systems, AS BY ensures that OV systems are integrated into the BOS digital radio network with as little backlash as possible and thus without interference.
The functional acceptance of the OV systems is always the responsibility of the requesting BOS.
