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.
