Motorola Solutions gives Japan’s tourism sector a mission-critical boost

Motorola Solutions has extended the reach of interconnected communications to Kansai International Airport.

It is the fifth major airport in Japan to deploy mission-critical communications based on the TETRA standard.

Motorola Solutions with its partner, Nippon Airport Radio Services, deployed the mission critical communication system to Kansai, following the successful integration of Narita, Naha, Haneda and Chubu international airports between 2016 and 2019.

The latest deployment comes as Japan’s tourism and aviation sectors mark an important milestone in its recovery from the global pandemic, reopening borders to international tour groups from this month.

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

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

“Behind the scenes of any airport operation is a carefully co-ordinated 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 co-ordinate complex operations every day as well as proving its resilience to typhoons, snowstorms and other disasters on many occasions.”
