Newark Liberty Airport Deploys TETRA Network from PowerTrunk
Friday, March 02, 2018 | Comments

PowerTrunk provided a new TETRA network at New Jersey’s Newark Liberty International Airport (EWR) in collaboration with Rockwell Collins.

This is the fourth TETRA project that has been awarded to PowerTrunk by Rockwell Collins as part of a program to upgrade its ARINC GLOBALink network in use at several airport locations across the country. In addition to Newark, the other U.S. airports using the PowerTrunk TETRA networks owned and operated by Rockwell Collins are Los Angeles (LAX), San Francisco (SFO) and New York John F. Kennedy (JFK).

The TETRA network is employed for mission-critical airline and aviation ground-based communications and enhances operations and services for airline ramp area personnel, passenger services, ground handlers, terminal security teams and other ground staff working at the airport. TETRA’s background noise cancellation capabilities make it unique for use in noisy environments such as airports.

The Newark Liberty TETRA system additionally has direct connectivity into the JFK airport network, located only about 35 miles away, facilitating communications and coordination between users at each airport when necessary.

“We are once again very pleased to work with Rockwell Collins in upgrading their airport LMR systems with TETRA technology,” said Jose Martin, CEO of PowerTrunk. “This latest implementation also further reinforces our presence in the New Jersey and New York area, where we are already providing TETRA coverage for thousands of other users, such as for the New Jersey Transit statewide TETRA network through Nokia Solutions and Networks as the prime contractor, and for the MTA/NYCT bus radio network project underway for New York City through Parsons Transportation Group.”

Congrats to Rockwell Collins at Newark-Liberty on another successful TETRA deployment. This definitely further solidifies the use of TETRA in the U.S. for mission-critical transportation applications.
