Radio transceivers and systems manufacturer Hytera Mobilfunk has concluded a contract to equip Poland’s Warsaw Chopin Airport with a new TETRA radio system.
The system comprises two TETRA base stations type DIB-R5 advanced.
With the new system in place, Chopin Airport will have the capacity for up to 31 radio channels per base station. It will guarantee coverage of the airport using a combination of detailed antenna and repeater networks.
Two redundant TETRA switching nodes with network management systems (NMS) and voice recording capabilities are said to ensure the core function of the system.
In addition, five dispatcher consoles allow the coordination of more than 1,000 TETRA radios, including portable ATEX radios for operation in explosive zones.
Hytera Mobilfunk Eastern Europe sales vice-president Marco Martinato said: “Reliable voice and data communication is essential for airports. Our technology is ideally suited for these complex applications and has proven itself many times over.
“We are very pleased about the trust placed in us and are proud to equip Chopin Airport with an optimal communication system.”
The company stated that the integration of the TETRA system will involve step-by-step migration.
Initially, the system will only be connected to an EDACS (radio communication protocol) system to allow users to gradually migrate from the old system to the Hytera ACCESSNET-T IP network.
Poland-based RadioPartners, which has previously collaborated with Hytera for various projects, will assist the migration.
Hytera Mobilfunk Central & Eastern Europe sales director Marcin Bialczak said: “Our first-class communication equipment, together with the expertise of our local partner RadioPartners, made this project a perfect offer for our customer.”
