an airport’s operations impose on the communication network. The network
must be robust and fail-safe to ensure smooth round-the-clock airport
operations, passenger safety and security.

next-generation digital mission-critical TETRA communication from Motorola

Shanghai and Beijing airports, Hong Kong International Airport, Thailand’s
Suvarnabhumi Airport, and New Delhi, Bengaluru and Hyderabad International
airports in India.

Forces in 2009. To reach the 2 million milestone so rapidly shows the
increase in the TETRA market in recent years.
*Motorola Solutions complete portfolio of TETRA solutions involves
infrastructure, terminals, applications and services that are now in use
in more than 120 countries worldwide. It is backed by a heritage of 85
years of serving mission-critical communication users.

innovation brought to users. In the coming months, Motorola Solutions will
be introducing the MTM5000 Series TETRA mobile radios as well as the new
MTP6000 Series portables, one of the most advanced TETRA portable radio in
the world. The new additions future-proof today’s investment as they are

the core of mission-critical communications and is recognizing that its
