PowerTrunk Provides TETRA Network Upgrades at U.S. Airports
Tuesday, August 10, 2021 | Comments

During the month of June, PowerTrunk provided software upgrades to the TETRA networks owned and operated by Collins Aerospace at several U.S. airports.

The TETRA networks were originally procured from PowerTrunk over the course of 2013 to 2018 by Arinc, which has since been acquired by Collins. The airport TETRA systems that received the upgrade are Los Angeles International (LAX), New York (JFK), San Francisco International (SFO) and Newark Liberty Airport (EWR).

PowerTrunk technical personnel made on-site visits to each location to perform the upgrade of all major software of the PowerTrunk-T TETRA systems, including for the main and redundant central control nodes, network management servers and other network elements. As a result, Arinc’s airport TETRA networks now include the latest software versions, device drivers and features for all elements making up the PowerTrunk-T system. This, in turn, improves the internal operational performance of the system and assures that the networks are not affected by obsolescence and are prepared to support possible future functionality.

“Collins Aerospace’s decision to select TETRA for four major U.S. airports has proven right,” said PowerTrunk CEO Jose Martin. “TETRA’s cellphone-like speech quality and outstanding background noise cancellation make all the difference at noisy environments where other LMR technologies are not as efficient.”
