Communications International Completes Installation of Upgraded Radio System at Tampa International

TAMPA, FLA., June 15, 2016 – Communications International (Ci), a leading supplier of customized communications systems and services for the public safety, transit and utility industries, has completed installation of an upgraded radio system at Tampa International Airport (TPA). The new system provides interoperability with local agencies and enhances inbuilding coverage to isolated areas throughout the facility.

Ci was contracted by the Hillsborough Aviation Authority to replace the existing UHF police radio system at TPA. The project included a cooperative effort with the Hillsborough County Sheriff’s Office to expand their Harris 700 MHz P25 radio system with a simulcast site at TPA, and Harris Symphony consoles to support their dispatch operations. In addition, critical areas within the airport were enhanced with a TX/RX bi‐directional amplifier (BDA) and distributed antenna system (DAS) to ensure adequate RF coverage throughout the facility.

“We are pleased to provide Tampa International Airport with a new public safety‐grade radio system,” stated Ci Sales and New Business Development Director Henry Erfurt. “This system and its enhancements will enable seamless communication between airport police and the Hillsborough County Sheriff’s Office and City of Tampa Fire Department, further ensuring the safety of airport staff and the more than 18 million passengers that TPA serves each year.”
