Industry giant supplies critical comms to Chinese airport
Airbus is providing its narrowband/LTE hybrid Tactilon Agnet to Jinan Airport in China, in order to upgrade the facility’s existing TETRA system.
A spokesperson for Airbus said: “Thanks to the possibility of hybrid networking, Jinan Airport staff members - from fuel personnel to firefighters - will be able to connect to the secure TETRA system using their ordinary smartphones.
“They can use secure TETRA for airport-related services such as luggage handling, shuttle bus logistics, equipment maintenance, or refuelling, at the push of a button.”
Jinan Airport is one of the busiest airports in China, receiving around 18 million visitors a year.
