Teltronic Provides Mission-Critical Communication Systems at Six Philippine Airports

Source: The Critical Communications Review | Gert Jan Wolf editor

TETRA solution replaces the existing DMR and Analog networks, delivering great operational improvements, and is the first TETRA system in airport environments in the Philippines.

MacroAsia Corporation (MAC), a leading provider of aviation-related support services in the Philippines, has relied in Teltronic to deploy a TETRA communication system that services six airports in the country: Clark, Kalibo, Cebu, Davao, General Santos and the capital, Manila.

Teltronic has delivered a global communications solution that has replaced the existing DMR and Analog radio network allowing Macroasia to operate a secure, highly reliable system with advanced capabilities for all groups operating at the airport, including the runway operations control centre, plane landing and take-off signalling, airport information service, security personnel, tow vehicles and emergency services, amongst others. It will also allow Macroasia to use advanced data-enabled applications that will greatly improve the efficiency of their daily communications.

One of the main advantages provided by the Teltronic’s NEBULA infrastructure is that it allows communications both intra and inter airports through a single system. The airports are able to manage their communications autonomously, or establishing communications between the different airports if necessary in case of emergency or in any other situation that requires wider coordination.

Teltronic’s end-to-end solution consists of a network Control Node and a state-of-the-art Network Management System that manages the overall system and that allows the monitoring in real time of all base stations regardless of their location across the country. The solution also includes world-class terminals and a CeCoCo control center that allows advanced dispatching as well as real-time GPS positioning of all subscribers at the six airports.

Josep Jonch, Asia Pacific Sales Director for Teltronic commented: “We are proud to contribute to this very significant milestone in the Philippines aviation industry: the first TETRA project in airport environments in the country. We see this as a great opportunity to show the added value that our TETRA solution can deliver in this mission-critical industry, as well as a proof of the trust of our customer Macroasia in TETRA as the right technology and in Teltronic as partner. “
