Huawei Launches Airport Cloud Solution to Accelerate Digital Transformation to Smart Airports
At HUAWEI CONNECT 2021, Huawei launched its latest airport cloud solution that offers a wide range of outstanding features, such as single access, network for all services , multi-zone cloud and one-stop integrated security. This feature-rich solution enables the digital transformation of airports to increase operational efficiency, improve safety assurance and enhance the travel experience, paving the way for smart airports.

Today's global civil aviation is undergoing rapid digital transformation. Airports - where transportation services for airlines, passengers and freight carriers take place - are shifting their digital focus from high-speed growth to high-quality growth. In such a context, airports face a number of urgent challenges. For example, they need to converge data from traditional siled networks to support new services, such as intelligent location dispatch. They must also improve the Wi-Fi experience of passengers in the terminals to move up in the passenger satisfaction ranking of the Airports Council International (ACI). Besides, As cloudification of services breaks traditional physical boundaries, airports must respond to emerging security defense concerns. And due to the expanding network scale, airports also urgently need to increase the efficiency of operations and maintenance (O&M).

With continuous technological innovations in airport safety, efficiency and experience, Huawei will continue to work with more customers and partners around the world to advance the airport cloud solution. , thus promoting the digital transformation of smart airports.

Huawei's airport cloud solution consists of the airport terminal access network, main network, cloud data center network and built-in network security. This solution has the following four specific features:

  • Single access and continuous network creation certified Wi-Fi 6: Huawei's solution leverages AirEngine Wi-Fi 6 to create a gigabit wireless access network for continuous long-range coverage throughout the airport terminal . In particular, the unique smart antennas made up of 4 elements increase the coverage distance by 20%, achieving full Wi-Fi coverage with no blind spots. In addition, intelligent algorithms are used to direct roaming in real time, ensure network-wide roaming transfers without loss of information and ultimately prevent disruption of services offered to travelers such as video and game.
  • A network for all services and IPv6 + allowing more innovations: Huawei's solution uses innovative IPv6 + technology to build a centralized main network for several services. Some of the resulting benefits include industry-level Mbps-level network slicing, isolation of network traffic for over 1000 applications, and 100% bandwidth assurance for core services. These impressive characteristics allow the main network to fully adapt to many services, such as security screening, security protection, commerce and ground handling.
  • Multi-Zone Cloud and Network as a Service (NaaS): After the migration of airport services to the cloud, cloud data centers are spread over large areas. As such, Huawei's solution supports automatic network deployment to speed up service provisioning and uses smart technologies to predict outages and pinpoint outages within minutes. The proactive network failure prediction rate can reach over 90%, which significantly improves the operational efficiency of airports.
  • One-stop integrated security and cloud-network collaboration:   Airport service data is becoming increasingly valuable and data security is becoming a top priority. In response, Huawei's solution introduces a cloud-network-security collaboration system that leverages a zero-trust architecture for dynamic detection and intelligent analysis. This provides real-time information on the level of network-wide security and effective threat detection with over 96% accuracy.

Huawei continues to innovate to meet the expectations of airport customers for safety, efficiency and experience. With rich technical expertise and solid experience in digital transformation, Huawei will join forces with more airport customers and partners to explore and implement innovative airport solutions, accelerating digital transformation towards smart airports.

Optimization of Air Cargo Handling Processes thanks to AI and Telematics

INFORM Institut für Operations Research und Management GmbH | May 19, 2020

Keeping track of unit load devices (ULDs), containers, and dollies has been a major challenge for ground handlers over the years. The difficulty that involves gathering real-time information on the status of such assets has led to several inefficiencies when trying to control them. The result: Excessive costs due to inadequate manpower and ground support equipment (GSE) allocation. To address this problematic, INFORM GmbH teamed up with Blumenbecker Technik GmbH. In a joint effort, they developed the industry’s first solution that facilitates managing and maintaining dolly fleets. This smart tool helps to answer the most critical operational questions: Where exactly is the ground support equipment located? What are the current maintenance requirements? To what extent is the overall dolly fleet being used? How does it work? By combining AI and telematics, ground handlers can track and locate every ULD and dolly on the apron within seconds. This allows operators to plan and manage their GSE´s capacity utilization based on the respective task more optimally.

test Q&A WITH ED BREAULT

aprimo | March 31, 2020

MEDIA 7: What’s your superpower? ED BREAULT: I would say it’s applying the full spectrum of art and science that is required in marketing today. Not just left or right brained, but whole-brained strategy. Being human yet data-driven and really understanding numbers and (the right) metrics to make connections to business drivers. Add storytelling to that, so I can effectively communicate to my team, the CEO and CFO as well as my Board of Directors on those metrics, and connecting all that we are doing in marketing to the mission of the business. Then quickly shifting gears to the art and creative aspects of marketing that are required to engage an audience and tell great commercial stories that take complex concepts and craft them in a way that is interesting for people to pay attention to. I have to be the ultimate point of truth for the brand.

ATPCO introduces new Reassurance UPAs at no cost to airlines

TravelDailyNews International | April 08, 2020

ATPCO has embarked on a pro-bono initiative to help airlines, sales channels, and people who fly, and we thought you might be interested in knowing about it. While most airlines have cut back schedules significantly or are even grounded at the moment, it’s a fluid situation. There are still many flights operating, some scheduled flights are being brought back into operation already, and there is still flight shopping for the future. Those traveling now - and those who will fly again in the future - are rightfully concerned about their health and safety when they travel. ATPCO saw an urgent need to help convey the measures airlines are taking to protect passengers when they are considering flights to purchase.
