Recycling and disposal of terminal devices
Classified, certified terminal devices used in the Polycom sector such as the P2G, the TPH-700 or the BER4M must be professionally disposed of at the end of their lifecycle. RUAG takes care of this last phase, carries out the required disposal and ensures sustainable recycling.
Protection regulations and environmental requirements that are obligatory for the destruction of information carriers are strictly adhered to. Each device contains an encryption chip, which is installed on the respective main board and is subject to a protection class. RUAG is certified by the manufacturer Airbus to dispose of these classified terminal devices and to document this process professionally.
