Cologne Exhibition Center Deploys DMR Tier 3 Network from Motorola
Tuesday, November 28, 2017 | Comments

The Koelnmesse exhibition center in Cologne, Germany is the first customer for Motorola Solutions’ Digital Mobile Radio (DMR) Tier 3-compliant trunked solution in Germany. The system replaces the existing analog radio infrastructure and supports the company’s future-oriented project Koelnmesse 3.0.

The network enables instant, reliable voice and data communications, better decision-making and seamless coordination across the entire exhibition area. Management tools give users control over the system — all from a single workstation. AIRadio and NC Plan are helping implement the new radio system.

The new radio system will enable secure and reliable voice and data communications for the exhibition center’s security personnel, facility management and technical teams, including the operation of 150 radios.

Motorola said the system goes beyond the core interoperability of the DMR standard to provide enhanced functionality including digital emergency call handling, call queuing prioritization and over-the-air programming.

“Koelnmesse is one of the most important global trade fair venues with a longstanding history of more than 90 years,” said Ludger Wälken, head of central division at Koelnmesse 3.0. “With our project Koelnmesse 3.0 we are striving to create the world’s most appealing inner-city exhibition center. A secure and reliable communication is the key for the digitalization of our infrastructure and processes.”

Within the framework of the project Koelnmesse 3.0, the company plans to invest more than €600 million (US$712.7 million) by 2030 to align the exhibition center and the infrastructure with the requirements of the trade fair business in the coming years. Based on the changing customer demand, the investment program Koelnmesse 3.0 focuses on boosting the quality of the existing trade fair areas, optimizing the versatility of the exhibition grounds, and integrating the trade fair and congress services into a future-oriented business model.
