In recent years, requirements for ICT-based smart airport construction have and will continue to evolve. Civil airports require high network reliability and real-time performance for their business systems. ICT-based systems help optimize airport business processes, provide digital operation and dispatching tools for airport staff, and provide Office Automation (OA), Enterprise Resource Planning (ERP), analysis, and decision-making assistance for airport management personnel, thereby ensuring stable and efficient airport operations. These systems require an agile and intelligent network.
Improves Overall Efficiency of Airport Operations
The Airport Agile Network Solution improves the global efficiency of airport operations. Data centers implement integration of operations for multiple terminal buildings. Backbone networks ensure interconnectivity of data center, airfield, terminal building, 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. The 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 QoS levels. The Public Address (PA) network enables communication on the Layer 2 network and security isolation, preventing voice distortion. A shared airport network provides Internet connections for airline office and on-site operations and other airport-stationed units.
Airport High-Density Wi-Fi Solution
Huawei provides an airport high-density Wi-Fi solution for full coverage in complex outdoor scenarios and high-density indoor settings such as the check-in lobby, security checkpoints, and waiting areas. The solution effectively reduces interference and 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 improved user experiences.
