Munich Airport’s analog public address and voice alarm system in Terminal 1 has been replaced with the IP-based Praesensa solution from Bosch Building Technologies.

The company’s biggest Praesensa system deployment to date, the installation is based on a large scale and powerful networking concept with multiple subnets.

Bosch & Munich Airport

With 31.6 million passengers in 2022 and 210 destinations in 63 different countries, Munich Airport is one of Europe’s most important air traffic hubs.

In fact, it was recently named “Best Airport in Central Europe” by Skytrax.

Since Munich Airport opened in 1992, Bosch has been an established project partner, with an on-site support team looking after the fire and intruder detection technology, video cameras and door control system.

“The overall package won us over”

According to Bosch, its maximum configuration level enables up to 3,000 Praesensa system components and 10,000 audio zones to be managed centrally.

The new solution is equipped for future expansions.

“We wanted reliable connectivity with good redundancy and a flexible, futureproof solution for Munich Airport,” said Michael Huck, Project Engineer for Safety and Security Systems, Flughafen München GmbH.

“Another ideal feature was the problem-free integration of our 14,000 existing speakers into the new solution. The overall package won us over.”

The IP connectivity of all components means the new solution in Terminal 1, which is maintained by the on-site Bosch team, can be scaled and adapted to future requirements.

“When you make an investment, it’s important for the technology to grow along with it, without previous investments going to waste,” added Huck.

“That is particularly true of an airport, because it’s in a constant state of flux.”
