How it helps

SITA Professional Mobile Radio is delivered through new, improved radio terminals and best-in-class Distributed Antenna Systems (DAS).


  • Fully managed service, from installation to operation and management
  • Uses open standards, guaranteeing interoperability and avoiding technology lock-in
  • Smooth, proven migration path from a legacy radio system
  • Airport-specific applications, including flight-oriented dialing and database queries from a portable device
  • Standard interfaces to enterprise telephony, IPT or PBX, with the option of a single dialing plan
  • Smartphone integration and applications


  • Trunked radio – Trunking increases traffic capacity by dynamically assigning radio channels to subscribers for the duration of their call. This means more information can be transmitted over the same radio bandwidth.
  • Fixed and dynamic user groups – Group call features include pre-defined communication groups and groups that can be assigned dynamically. These can be used as processes or deployment of resources.
  • Flight-oriented dialing –This enables immediate communications between all personnel involved in the turnaround of an aircraft at the gate. By dialing the flight number, each individual member (i.e. ramp agent, loadmaster, cargo, catering or cleaning) can be contacted via simple task code and the flight number.
  • Smooth migration – Many airports are already equipped with expensive in-house systems. SITA ensures seamless integration and maximizes the reuse of the existing systems.

  • While SITA can procure all devices, we have preferred suppliers that can provide a range of devices – from FM and hand portable to vehicle-mounted radio and desktop devices.
