Motorola Solutions provided a system upgrade for the Shanghai aviation hub, one of the world’s top 10 aviation hubs in 2016. The system upgrade included a software maintenance service contract for a major TETRA communications solution.

Shanghai, a major center for trade and business as well as one of the most populous cities in the world, is served by two airports that surpassed the 100 million passenger mark in combined passenger traffic last year.

Shanghai aviation hub is a pioneer in the deployment of many advanced solutions for critical communications in China, including its first analog system in 1994, an upgrade to a digital solution in 2006 and now, a holistic service maintenance contract running for seven years.

The aviation hub operates an end-to-end integrated TETRA communications system comprising nearly 10,000 digital two-way radios and repeaters, as well as a DIMETRA IP digital solution to increase coverage without disrupting radio users.

“Running successful airport operations involves managing a series of complex and inter-linked workflows, from front-end counter ticketing, controlling passenger traffic and baggage services to the back-end coordination of aircraft,” said WenJie Shao, general manager, Shanghai Hong Pu Civil Airport Communication. “Highly advanced and dependable communications is required to connect all of these intricate parts together for seamless coordination.”

“The challenge to maintain performance and deliver uninterrupted daily operations becomes greater during large-scale events with a high volume of passenger and air traffic,” Shao said.

In the past 10 years, Motorola Solutions’ highly reliable TETRA communications solutions have enabled the Shanghai aviation hub to successfully manage multiple world-class events held in the city, including the Special Olympics in 2007 and the Shanghai World Expo in 2010.

“Today, our customers face growing pressures on operating costs with no compromise on delivering the highest levels of safety, productivity and efficiency,” said Michael Jiang, president and country manager for China, Motorola Solutions. “In airline operations, it is especially crucial to have communications solutions running at peak performance. By offering life-cycle management services, we are helping companies to benefit from fully refreshed system infrastructure and the most up-to-date hardware and software.”

Regular hardware and software maintenance prolongs the life of Motorola Solutions’ communications products and solutions, and ensures the continuity of critical communications for secure and reliable operations.
