Simoco Group has announced the deployment of its complete Digital Mobile Radio (DMR) solution to an airline services organisation in Australia today (20 February 2104).
Simoco has supplied a Simoco Xd Tier II system to Alpha Flight Services, a catering company which operates at Perth Airport – one of the busiest international transport hubs which sees over 13.6 million passengers per year.
To meet the airport’s exponential growth in both commercial and corporate flights, Alpha Flight Services needed to address and improve its operational communications, ensuring that catering staff and catering van drivers could communicate seamlessly on a dedicated reliable network at all times.
Simoco approached Alpha Flight Services to develop a complete end-to-end DMR network solution, which included DMR portables that operated on Simoco’s industry leading DMR infrastructure.
“Working with Simoco was an easy decision for us to make,” said Daniel Morgan, operation manager at Alpha Flight Services. “After the site inspection and testing, which was carried out by Simoco technicians, it became clear how a Simoco Xd system could enhance our operations at the airport.
“The clear audio and assured coverage gives us the confidence that our drivers and personnel can stay in constant communication and respond quickly to issues in the busy communications critical environment. Additionally, Simoco Xd is software upgradable to Tier III, so it also gives us the flexibility to grow as our requirements change into the future,” said Morgan.
“This latest move addresses Alpha’s need for a critical communications solution in a fast paced environment,” said Ian Carr, CEO at Simoco Group. “Previously the company used mobile phones, which can be unreliable, costly and fail to offer seamless, all informed push-to-talk communications to ensure worker safety. Simoco Xd therefore provides the ideal solution for increasing the safety, efficiency and reliability of Alpha’s personal network.”
