Intrakat has undertaken the implementation of the mobile telephony signal coverage project on behalf of the country’s major telecommunications providers at the 14 regional airports managed by Fraport Greece, namely the airports of Thessaloniki, Mykonos, Mykonos, Santorini, Chania, Chania, Aktio, Corfu, Kavala, Kefalonia, Kos, Mytilene, Rhodes, Skiathos, Samos and Zakynthos.
As noted in an announcement, “in order to ensure continuous and uninterrupted signal coverage up to 5G, all available frequency bands (800 MHz to 3500 MHz) will be used in all technologies (GSM, DCS, UMTS, LTE & 5G).
The project is expected to be completed within this year, upgrading the quality of services provided to passengers, both Greek and foreign, visiting our country.
Indicatively, according to Fraport’s official data, during 2022, a total of more than 31,194,000 passengers arrived at these airports, on more than 256,000 flights, numbers that are expected to increase significantly in the coming years.
As gradual digitisation reveals more potential and gains a larger and larger share of the population, the demand for upgraded digital services is growing. With this project, the travelling public will now be able to enjoy reliable digital services such as high quality phone calls and fast access to the internet and their favourite applications during their stay at these airports. Easy access to the digital world, through the respective infrastructures, contributes to the digital transformation of our country, while enhancing – at the same time – its image.
As a reminder, Intrakat, as EPC (engineering, procurement and construction) contractor, successfully completed the project of parallel construction of the 14 regional airports, delivering them to Fraport Greece three months ahead of the contractual obligation, at the beginning of 2021.
In addition to expertise in large and complex construction projects, the Intrakat Group has many years of experience in digital infrastructure projects.
Recently, the company announced the undertaking of a pilot mobile signal coverage project on Line 2 of the Metro for all telecom operators, as well as the construction of a state-of-the-art fibre-to-the-home (FTTH) network in 3 municipalities of Attica on behalf of PPC”.
