Airbus's Tactilon Agnet for China's Guangzhou Airport

Airbus and its local partners, GuangZhou Topcom and Beijing Smart & Speedy, have signed a contract to provide hybrid communication services for Guangzhou Airport and its adjacent airports.

The airport, China’s third-busiest and the world’s 13th-busiest airport in passenger traffic, has been using an 800 MHz Airbus TETRA network since 2008.

The new contract includes the supply of a Taira switch, a Tactilon server and Tactilon Agnet licences for smartphone installation.

The Tactilon Agnet collaboration platform, along with a dispatching feature available on smartphones, will give on-ground, shuttle bus transportation, food provision and fuel supply personnel access to an extended TETRA radio system and the ability to communicate with other users on the original TETRA system.

Delivery of the system is planned for the first half of 2021.
