New Beijing Airport to Deploy TETRA Network
Tuesday, May 28, 2019 | Comments

Beijing Daxing Airport, due to open in September, is slated for a TETRA network connected with Beijing International Airport to secure daily operations.

Airbus will provide a TETRA service and nine base stations with eight channel receives per base station for Beijing’s second international airport communications structure. The system will be mutually backed up by the Beijing Capital International Airport to enhance the communications and management of the two airports. The network will be put in use before 30 September, the official opening date of the airport.

This new airport will possess eight runways and serve around 100 million passengers annually, all of which will be secured with Airbus technology. Tests carried out in April proved the interconnectivity between the digital trunk communications systems of both airports to be reliable, with stable and clear communications recorded. The two TETRA systems provided by Airbus are fully interconnected, allowing for airport-related entities to benefit from seamless communications between both airports.

Beijing International Airport was equipped with a TETRA network in 2008. During the past 10 years, it has played a vital role in securing tasks relating to passenger transportation, as well as the logistics of high-scale world sports events. The system serves more than 10,000 subscribers. In 2018, the Beijing International Airport saw more than 100 million passengers for the first time, making it the second-busiest airport in the world.
