Motorola Solutions Enhances Airport Safety and Efficiency

Motorola Solutions Enhances Airport Safety and EfficiencyStuttgart Airport and Baden-Airpark selects Motorola Solutions broadband push-to-talk platform WAVE™ to connect public safety personnel, airport workers and supporting organizations at like never before.
 
  • WAVE Work Group Communications connects TETRA with disparate networks, including Wi-Fi, cellular and telephone landlines
  • Integrated control room communications enable faster reaction in cases of emergency between airport organisations as well as fire and rescue services
  • Airport authorities sign comprehensive long-term service contract with Motorola Solutions

Long term Motorola Solutions customer, Stuttgart Airport identified the need to extend the airport’s communications beyond its TETRA rollout to ensure greater workforce connectively, interoperability and collaboration. Connecting the DIMETRA™ TETRA system with broadband devices and networks using WAVE - a powerful PTT platform – ensures public safety personnel and workers at the airport can join the broadband platform via smartphones, computers, other radios or telephones from virtually any location.

The future-proof technology extension follows a long-term communications strategy of the airport authorities. After the consolidation of the control rooms for fire departments and rescue services, the officials were looking for an integrated, secure communications system for all users – from ramp agents and baggage handlers to external workgroups such as cleaning organizations. Motorola Solutions provided this solution based on its WAVE platform combined with a refresh of its DIMETRA IP Compact TETRA radio network and its MCC 7500 IP Dispatch Console for integrated control room operations.

“We have been relying on Motorola Solutions’ TETRA digital radio solutions since 2009 and successfully expanded our DIMETRA IP Compact system to Baden-Airpark in 2013. Extending our TETRA network to other user groups at the airport was a logical step for us to increase efficiencies and to help us provide the best possible service to our passengers.”
- Matthias Kolb, Head of Information and Communication Services at Flughafen Stuttgart GmbH

Airport officials can now easily communicate and dispatch out individual responders or groups in the TETRA network using the WAVE Advanced Desktop Communicator. The employees can even establish a connection with a public provider network to ensure a smooth and seamless communication at any time.

“A secure, reliable and interoperable communications system is crucial for airports in order to guarantee safe journeys for all passengers. Our WAVE PTT platform and our TETRA technology provide control rooms with the unmatched capability to reach across multiple user applications and resources for enhanced response coordination and greater efficiencies.”
- Klaus-Dieter Drossel, Sales Director for Key Accounts, Motorola Solutions Germany GmbH

LONG-TERM SERVICE AGREEMENT SIGNED
For future-proof system stability and resilience of the communications system, the airport authorities have signed a comprehensive agreement covering software, hardware, and implementation as well as maintenance and repair services.

If you’d like to join the conversation about communication for operational effectiveness across airports, we’d be delighted to welcome you to the Motorola Solutions Community EMEA LinkedIn Group.
