Sepura radios enhance operations at airport in Mexico
Cambridge digital radio specialist Sepura has won a contract with one of Latin America’s busiest airports. The contract, for an undisclosed sum, is to supply Benito Juárez International Airport, Mexico with TETRA technology.
Benito Juárez International Airport has enormous traffic: more than 100,000 passengers pass through each day and statistics from 2017 show a 7.2 per cent increase of passengers (45 million passengers in total) compared to 2016. More than 2,500 employees are also based on site.
Spread across two terminals, Mexico City International Airport’s system will utilise over 500 Sepura SC20 hand-portable radios, alongside over 130 SRG3900 desk- and vehicle-mounted mobile radios.
The decision to switch to TETRA allows for enhanced existing operations and future growth in user numbers and functionality.
Crucially, the new TETRA network has successfully achieved 99.9 per cent coverage to meet one of the airport’s key operational requirements. The network increases site security through air interface encryption and authentication, ensuring communications are secure.
