Smart airports fully exploit the power of emerging technologies, with advanced and pervasively deployed sense-analyze-respond capabilities. Systems are built around a “digital grid”: a single, converged IP network that enables high-speed broadband traffic throughout the entire ecosystem, including the airport, airport city, airlines, seaport, logistics, authorities, and other parties.
By enabling the exchange of real-time information, deep cross-silo collaboration, and airport-wide process integration, smart airports significantly improve operational efficiencies, passenger services, and advanced security capabilities. They also take passenger experience to new heights by delivering a range of personalized services enabled by seamless exchange of passenger data to anticipate needed services. Broad process integration among airlines, retailers, fuel providers, caterers, and other ecosystem partners creates new benefits along the entire value chain.
