Hong Kong Port Operator Selects Airbus Network
Tuesday, June 23, 2020 | Comments

Hongkong International Terminals (HIT), a key container port operator, selected Airbus’s value-added reseller HONOH, through HGC Global Communications (HGC), to replace its digital communications system with the Airbus hybrid solution.

The new network will cover all the terminals in the port areas 1 – 9 and more than 21 dispatcher workstations and network management workstations. 5G-ready voice and video communications will hence be made available and will be used by different port operators in the yard.

The Airbus hybrid solution is a highly reliable application for business critical use and allows professional voice and message communications between both smartphone and TETRA radio users, as well as with the control room. With Tactilon Agnet 800, TETRA features such as emergency calls and location tracking are also available and benefit from a high level of quality and security.

The new hybrid solutions help HIT gain operational efficiency and manage daily tasks, while ensuring the reliability and safety of the site itself, and its users.

HGC is a fixed-line operator and service provider with extensive local and international network coverage, services and infrastructure. The network will cover all terminals in the Kwai Tsing container port, which is one of the world's busiest, plus more than 21 dispatcher workstations and network management workstations. Eventually, HIT's overall network reliability will improve, while the versatility and scalability of the network will enable greater business expansion or the adoption of technology harnessing 5G and internet of things (IoT) applications in the future. HIT will also benefit from greater operational efficiency, which enables daily tasks to be managed more easily while ensuring reliability and heightening on-site safety.
