Motorola Solutions has been contracted to upgrade its Tetra digital two-way radio system at Munich Airport in Germany.

With the new communications infrastructure, the airport will have improved connectivity, interoperability and collaboration between various business and operational functions.

Munich Airport operator Flughafen München IT service division head Michael Zaddach said: “We have been working with Motorola Solutions’ Tetra two-way digital radio system since 2007.

“The update of our Tetra infrastructure enables us to further improve our communications in airport operations and make our processes even more efficient.”

Motorola is equipping the airport with a new MCC 7500 IP dispatch console within the framework of the new Tetra radio network.

The solution will enhance the airport's IP architecture and ensures optimum call set-up and availability.

"The update of our Tetra infrastructure enables us to further improve our communications in airport operations."

Furthermore, the airport will be able to expand its communications infrastructure in the future without interrupting existing services.

Motorola will also implement two Tetra base stations for improved radio coverage in the terminals.

Motorola Solutions Germany key accounts sales director Klaus-Dieter Drossel said: “We are collaborating closely with Munich Airport to provide a future-proof Tetra digital two-way radio network.

“We are also pleased that Munich Airport is testing our broadband push-to-talk platform Wave, and we are certain that it will enable airport staff to work together more closely, no matter which device or network they use.”

The airport has also started a pilot project for the potential installation of Motorola’s Wave broadband to ensure that airport staff can communicate well.

Wave provides airport authorities with secure communications beyond Tetra radio for improved workforce connectivity.
