Today’s airport operators are facing momentous challenges, including enhancing safety and security in light of increasing air traffic volume and level of security threat, as well as improving flight punctuality to compete with other modes of transportation.
Other challenges include enriching passenger services to increase airport competitiveness, generating new revenues to achieve self-sufficiency, and attaining higher efficiency to keep operational costs down.
Airport operators are at a tipping point today. They are relying more than ever on mission-critical and IT applications that require a flexible, agile and dynamic communications network. A service-aware converged IP/MPLS network has been proven to fulfil the requirements.
