Aeroports de Montreal (Montreal Airport, ADM) has deployed Israeli provider of sub-6 GHz broadband wireless solutions RADWIN’s FiberinMotion wireless mobility solution in the 4.9 GHz public safety frequency band to boost safety and operational efficiency across its airfield.
The company boasts that FiberinMotion delivers wireless broadband for vehicles, trains and vessels on the move and that it also delivers unmatched throughput of up to 100 Mbps and wide area coverage
RADWIN’s partner TBL Telecom, in partnership with Bell Canada, was in charge of project design and implementation. RADWIN’s FiberinMotion mobile radio units were deployed on aircraft rescue and firefighting vehicles (ARFF) as well as operation and maintenance vehicles.
FiberinMotion base stations were installed to provide full coverage inside and outside the aircraft operating area (AOA). The vehicles deliver video, data and telemetry information via the FiberinMotion mobile radio units to the control center, enabling Aeroports de Montreal (Montreal Airport, ADM) to boost security throughout its airport and streamline operations and maintenance procedures.
Bernard Simard, Chief Operations Officer, Aeroports de Montreal (Montreal Airport, ADM) stated, “RADWIN’s FiberinMotion wireless mobility solution was chosen amongst other technologies as it better matched our triple-play communications needs. Our vehicles are now equipped with online broadband connectivity which further improves safety and operational efficiency at the airport.”
Marc Flynn, General Manager, TBL Telecom said, “Aeroports de Montreal chose RADWIN over Wi-Fi and WIMAX-based solutions. FiberinMotion outperformed other alternatives, delivering the greatest throughput with only a few base stations to cover the entire tarmac. FiberinMotion operates in harsh conditions and is easy to deploy and maintain. As Aeroports de Montreal (Montreal Airport, ADM) expands the project scope, RADWIN’s FiberinMotion will continue to be its solution of choice.”
“We are proud to have been selected for this project, ” said Dennis Stipati, RADWIN North America General Manager. “FiberinMotion is setting a new standard in the industry, guaranteeing highest-speed broadband connectivity to vehicles on-the-move and assuring service continuity across the entire airport operating area. This latest win helps cement RADWIN’s leadership position in the field of wireless broadband for vehicles in motion.”
