Demand for ICT-based smart airport construction is now the new norm — such airports require high network reliability and real-time performance for their business systems.
Indeed, ICT-based systems help to optimize airport processes, providing digital operations and dispatching tools for airport staff, alongside Office Automation (OA), Enterprise Resource Planning (ERP), analysis, and decision-making assistance for airport management personnel. But to achieve stable and efficient airport operations through ICT, an agile and intelligent network is essential.
Improved Overall Efficiency of Airport Operations
Data centers implement integration of operations for multiple terminal buildings. Backbone networks ensure the interconnectivity of data centers, airfield, terminal buildings, and maintenance area resources. Campus networks at terminal buildings provide access to a wide variety of terminal devices.
Five Isolated Subnets
Huawei streamlines terminal building networks into five subnets: production, Departure Control System (DCS), security protection, integrated service, and external service networks. Subnets are physically isolated to provide the greatest degree of cyber security.
‘Dual-Core’ Backbone Network
For customers outside China, Huawei’s ‘dual-core’ backbone network is designed to meet their particular requirements and ensure interconnected airport businesses.
A single business network carries multiple services. Critical services are given higher priority, guaranteed by Quality of Service (QoS) levels. The Public Address (PA) network enables communication on the Layer 2 network and provides security isolation, preventing voice distortion. A shared airport network provides Internet connections for airline offices, on-site operations and other airport-stationed units.
Airport High-Density Wi-Fi Solution
Huawei offers high-density Wi-Fi to provide full coverage in complex outdoor scenarios and high-density indoor settings — such as the check-in lobby, security checkpoints, and waiting areas — effectively reducing interference and cutting costs.
Diversified Security Policies and Seamless Roaming
Diversified security policies ensure the safety of wireless networks. Seamless roaming delivers an improved user experience. Airport operation and passenger Internet surfing services are connected to different APs to ensure service security. Powerful user management measures guarantee the continuity of data services and an improved user experience.
