Kansai International Airport deploys Motorola Solutions’ Tetra communication system to manage security, operations, and baggage handling | #cybersecurity | #cyberattack

COMPANY NEWS: Motorola Solutions has extended Kansai International Airport’s communication reach, becoming the fifth major airport in Japan to deploy mission-critical communications based on the Tetra standard.

Motorola with its partner, Nippon Airport Radio Services, deployed the communication system to Kansai following integrations in Narita, Naha, Haneda, and Chubu international airports from 2016 to 2019.

The communications system connects critical functions across the five airports including security, operations and baggage handling.

The five airports have also deployed more than 9,000 of Motorola Solutions’ ST7000, MTP6550 and MTM5200 two-way radios to support communications for the Civil Aviation Bureau’s air traffic control, runway management, airport security, ground staff, bus transit services and commercial airlines.

The deployment is seen vital as Japan’s tourism and aviation sectors are starting to recover from the pandemic and reopening borders to international tour groups this month.

The five airports experience high levels of passenger traffic and the largest inflows of Japan’s international cargo. Before the pandemic, almost 200 million domestic and international travellers transited through the airports annually, Kansai says.

Nippon Airport Radio Services president and CEO Yoshikazu Takahashi said the performance of Tetra communications network and two-way radios had far exceeded expectations.

“Behind the scenes of any airport operation is a carefully coordinated set of activities to manage passenger flows, support on-time performance and maintain security, safety and customer satisfaction,” Takahashi said.

“Motorola Solutions’ advanced Tetra technology has helped our airports to coordinate complex operations every day as well as proving its resilience to typhoons, snow storms and other disasters on many occasions,” he said.

Motorola Solutions vice president for Asia Pacific Steve Crutchfield said the mission-critical communications system would meet the operational needs of Japan’s airports today and well into the future.

“With mission critical communication based on the Tetra standard, organisations can deliver and scale their services to meet increasing demands while upholding the highest levels of safety, security and productivity,” Crutchfield said.
