Today’s airport operators rely on vast quantities of data to keep aircrafts flowing through their airports and ensure passengers’ journeys are as smooth as possible. In the digital airport an increasing number of processes will be digitized and require reliable, secure wireless communication to provide operational excellence and an enhanced passenger experience. The digitalization of processes will affect every operation and airport stakeholder, from baggage handlers and ground service managers to APOC staff and emergency responders.

Airports currently use a mix of siloed, wireless technologies for these operations and to connect stakeholders. Often though there is no clear evolution path for these technologies, and some lack quality of service or have coverage issues, while preventing the airport from optimizing stakeholder communication. Such a siloed approach does not support the wireless platform for the digital airport.

Enhance efficiency and effectiveness – from APOC to apron

An Industrial-grade Private Wireless provides a dedicated, secure wireless network that prioritizes operational traffic and protects your initial investment with a clear roadmap from 4.9G to 5G. It provides guaranteed coverage and capacity, both terminal and airside for greater situational and operational awareness, and ensures reliable connectivity to enable faster, more efficient aircraft turnaround processes. It also allows airports to unify communication between all stakeholders for better decision making and offers quality of services based around the different stakeholder needs.


  • Aircraft turnaround processes:
    Dedicated wireless to guarantee coverage and capacity for digitalizing and optimizing the turnaround processes (below and above wing)

  • Marshall applications:
    Real-time data for ‘follow me’ cars on runway activity and projected flight traffic

  • Situational and operational awareness:
    Reliable, flexible video connectivity for real-time insight into incidents as well as air quality, noise, vehicle tracking and speed sensors for additional insights

  • Operational efficiency:
    Digital work orders prevent staff from having to return to HQ for new orders. Secure wireless CCTV allows for stand analytics with cameras flexibly positioned at airside
