Second Nepalese airport deploys TETRA comms

Nepal’s Gautam Buddha International Airport has become the country’s second airport to deploy a TETRA communication solution, following on from Tribhuvan International Airport.

The mission-critical communications solution, built on Teltronic’s TETRA infrastructure, will feature Sepura SC20 handheld radios.

The TETRA network will enable the airport to respond to the pressure of moving passengers, luggage and cargo, improving both efficiency and safety. It will also enable coordination between the airport’s security and operational teams for everyday operations and, where necessary, emergency response.

Sepura’s regional partner in Nepal, Mahavir Shree International P Ltd, delivered the solution.

“By adopting Sepura’s SC20 radios, airport staff will benefit from the robust design, crystal clear audio and class-leading coverage capability, making the radio suitable for those working across the airport in security roles and those working in noisy airside locations,” said Shiv Prakash Khemka, Director of Mahavir Shree International Pvt. Ltd.

Engineer Pravin Neupane, Deputy Director of the National Pride Project within the Civil Aviation Authority of Nepal, said, “The development of a reliable, robust critical communications system is crucial to our development of Gautam Buddha Airport as an international standard airport. We are delighted to deploy the new Sepura radios as a part of the airport’s upgrade to help our security staff run a safe, efficient operation.”

The SC20 is able to connect to the airport’s secure Wi-Fi network, enabling future upgrades through Sepura’s AppSPACE applications environment. When required, radio fleet administrators will be able to deploy bespoke applications directly onto the SC20 to automate and streamline essential processes.
