Systems Integration


Systems integrationTo enable optimum operations, airports of all sizes need systems integration on a comprehensive scale. With airport traffic increasing at a rate of 5% year-on-year, the need has never been greater to maintain airport flow of passengers and flights, and integrated systems that work together seamlessly provide a robust network of information to deliver the highest achievable levels of efficiency and reliability.

An inordinate amount of data is collected, stored and distributed from global airports on a daily basis, and systems are complex and challenging. Integrating airport IT systems to provide consistent, manageable and airport-wide accessibility for information and maintenance is the answer to deliver efficiency across the entire environment.

Next generation airport connectivity

The modern, busy airport of today has changed enormously, largely due to the increasing pressures that rising traveller numbers and security mandates has placed on the airport environment in recent times.

Airports must remain flexible, with scalable solutions that can adapt and change within the fast-paced aviation industry.

Common use systems allow flexible deployment of services on a platform that can be scaled to adapt to the changing needs of global airports of all sizes, using industry-standard interfaces, and cloud, mobile or self-service technology, while maintaining critical security protocols. The introduction of biometric security solutions, automated baggage handling and border control innovations has made management of processes simpler, yet integration of systems even more crucial.
