Motorola Wins Indian Airport IP Network Deal

Motorola has won a five-year contract expected to be worth between $20m and $30m from three international airports in India to provide terrestrial trunked radio, Tetra, communication networks including base stations, MSO switches, and mobile, portable, and fixed radios.

The company will supply scalable Dimetra IP-based networks to new airports in Bengaluru and Hyderabad, and replace the existing analog radio network in Delhi's domestic and international airports.

The Dimetra IP system supports voice, messaging, and mobile applications, including remote access to data and data transmission over a single network.

The company has also recently provided Tetra networks for leading airports around the world including Spain's Barcelona and Zaragoza airports, Germany's Cologne Bonn, Munich, and Leipzig/Halle airports, China's Shanghai, Beijing, and Hong Kong airports, and Thailand's Suvarnabhumi airport.

Phey Teck Moh, vice president and general manager of government and public safety at Motorola Asia Pacific, said: "Increase in air traffic has put tremendous demands on the management of airports. Motorola is committed to bring the latest mission-critical voice and data mobile solutions to airports in Asia Pacific. There are now 10 international airports in Asia Pacific utilizing Motorola's Tetra solutions."
