Cassidian installs TETRA base station at Düsseldorf Airport

Cassidian has set up a high-performance TETRA TB3 base station at Düsseldorf Airport in cooperation with the airport’s IT service provider, SITA Airport IT. The base station enables the authorities’ nationwide digital network to be fed directly into the airport’s indoor radio system.

The new digital radio system supplements the existing analogue system available in Düsseldorf Airport’s buildings, and is fully integrated into the Germany’s new emergency services terrestrial BOS digital radio network (BOSNet). Thus, where necessary, communication between all task forces inside and outside the airport is ensured.

The base station can be directly integrated into the BOSNet thanks to an administration agreement for network connection being concluded between Düsseldorf Airport and the German Federal Agency for Digital Radio of Security Authorities and Organisations (BDBOS).

Based on passenger volume Düsseldorf Airport occupies third place in Germany after Frankfurt am Main and Munich. In 2011, more than 20 million passengers used the airport, which is connected to 192 destinations in 55 countries by 64 airlines.
