Hytera Facilitates US Open 2015 with XPT Trunking Solution
With Novak Djokovic winning his second US Open title on September 14th(GMT +8), the Grand Slam tennis tournament came to an end at USTA Billie Jean King National Tennis Center in New York. Hytera Communications, a world leading solution provider of professional mobile radio communications, facilitated ESPN a smooth and successful live broadcasting for the 14-day tennis game with its latest XPT Digital Trunking solution.
As the primary broadcaster of the tournament, ESPN has to broadcast over 40 games to the US and international audiences, which asks for efficient and reliable communication during all games of broadcasting. Considering the practical needs of the broadcaster, Hytera, partnering with MCL, deployed the XPT digital trunking solution with 8 carriers and a secondary 7 carriers system, 1200 DMR handheld PD752 radios, for a total of 90 talk groups to successfully facilitate the ESPN crew in broadcasting, which makes it an excellent experience for the tournament.
Hytera XPT digital trunking system was launched at the International Wireless Communications Expo in March this year. The newly launched product enables customers to double their capacity while leveraging their current spectrum resource, in ways that are simpler and much less expensive than other market options by using an innovative distributed digital trunking technology.

About US Open 2015
The 2015 US Open was the 135th edition of the tournament and it is held at the USTA Billie Jean King National Tennis Center in Flushing Meadows–Corona Park of Queens in New York City, New York, United States.
The tournament was an event run by the International Tennis Federation (ITF) and is part of the 2015 ATP World Tour and the 2015 WTA Tour calendars under the Grand Slam category. The tournament consists of both men's and women's singles and doubles draws as well as a mixed doubles event. There are singles and doubles events for both boys and girls (players under 18), which is part of the Grade A category of tournaments, and singles, doubles and quad events for men's and women's wheelchair tennis players as part of the NEC tour under the Grand Slam category.
In the United States, the 2015 US Open is the first under a new, 11-year, $825 million contract with ESPN, in which the broadcaster holds exclusive rights to the entire tournament and the US Open Series, thus ending CBS Sports' 46-year association with the tournament, and availability of coverage on broadcast television. This makes ESPN the primary broadcaster of three of the four majors, as NBC still holds partial rights to the French Open.
