Stuttgart Airport Refreshes TETRA Network, Adds PTT from Motorola
Wednesday, September 21, 2016 | Comments

Motorola Solutions introduced its push-to-talk (PTT) platform at Stuttgart Airport in southern Germany. Airport authorities also signed an agreement covering software, hardware and implementation, as well as maintenance and repair services.

WAVE connects the integrated TETRA system for public-safety personnel and workers at the airport with supporting organizations that can join the broadband platform via smartphones, computers, other radios or telephones from virtually any location. The 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 required an integrated, secure communications system for all users — from ramp agents and baggage handlers to external workgroups such as cleaning organizations. Motorola Solutions provided the PTT platform combined with a refresh of its TETRA radio network and dispatch console for integrated control room operations.

Airport officials can now communicate and dispatch individual responders or groups in the TETRA network. The employees can establish a connection with a public provider network to ensure smooth and seamless communications at any time.

“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,” said Matthias Kolb, head of information and communications services at Flughafen Stuttgart. “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.”
