City, New Jersey – May 23, 2016 – PowerTrunk announces that is has been awarded a new TETRA network order by Rockwell Collins to provide a Terrestrial Trunked Radio (TETRA) system at San Francisco International Airport (SFO).
This is the third TETRA project that has been awarded to PowerTrunk as part of a program by Rockwell Collins to upgrade its ARINC GLOBALinkSM network in use at several airport locations across the country. Prior to San Francisco, Rockwell Collins and PowerTrunk also partnered to install TETRA networks at the Los Angeles International (LAX) and New York’s John F. Kennedy (JFK) airports.
The network is intended for mission critical airline and aviation ground-based communications, and will enhance operations and services such as for airline ramp area personnel, airline passenger services, ground handlers, terminal security teams, and other ground staff working at the airport.
TETRA is an open-standard digital radio communications technology that offers fast and secure communication with a wide range of telephone-like voice services, as well as unique data features that can be used to more effectively manage and co-ordinate operational tasks among diverse working groups. Other key advantages include superior voice clarity for communication, improved radio frequency spectrum efficiency, and the ability to support multiple simultaneous conversations, including simultaneous voice and data in the same call.
After the LAX and JFK airports, we are proud for having been awarded a new TETRA network by Rockwell Collins for San Francisco International Airport (SFO), stated Jose Martin, PowerTrunk CEO. TETRA has made its way in the North American land mobile radio market to become an increasingly widespread technology currently serving numerous major end-users in the United States and Canada. A high-tier choice at affordable cost, which became dominant worldwide years ago, and that has been deployed in North America since 2012.
