China’s Hunan International Airport Chooses Tadiran Telecom’s Integrative Communications Solution
Petach Tikva, Israel – Aug. 10th , 2011 – Tadiran Telecom, a leader in IP telephony and telecommunications, has been selected to provide Changsha Huanghua International Airport in Hunan, China with an advanced and customized solution based on its Coral™ communications system. The system, installed by Tadiran’s subsidiary KTT, is currently in the last stages of deployment.
Changsha Huanghua International Airport is part of the Hunan Airport Authority (HAA), a publicly owned corporation managing all five airports in Hunan Province. HAA was keen on replicating the success of other important transportation-hubs, such as Beijing International Airport and the Beijing Subway system, which also chose the Tadiran Telecom solution for its reliability, stability and mission critical capabilities.
HAA was attracted to Tadiran’s Coral IPx systems for their powerful control, response abilities and advanced IP networking features. The system’s various components offer qualities such as built-in redundancy and fault tolerance capabilities, which answered all of HAA’s efficiency and safety requirements.
“An airport environment presents many challenges and requires many specific solutions, especially in fields such as security and emergency response”, said KTT’s General Manager Bill Miao.
Mr. Miao added, “Tadiran’s solutions met and surpassed all of our customers’ demands by complying with stringent standards adopted by other renowned airports throughout the world. This project will enable us to provide better service and enhance our credibility towards our customers.”
“Tadiran boasts years of experience in planning and providing mission-critical solutions for airport communication systems”, said Tadiran’s President and CEO Eldad Barak.” This project deepens Tadiran’s involvement in the Chinese market and serves as an indication of our long term strategy to tighten and enhance cooperation with important transportation centers in Asia at large”.
Tadiran’s integrative approach guided the project from its inception. The special solution consists of ten Coral IPx systems working together as a mission-critical dispatch-control network In addition, a set of unique features tailored to the distinctive airport control environment such as a recording system, paging system and unique wall-mount anti-noise terminals will also be installed. All systems are to be deployed at the airport’s new 163,000 square meters international terminal. Over 11 million passengers used the airport services in 2009, and HAA expects to surpass this number once the new 270 million dollars project is completed.
