The Haneda Airport has selected HP networking solutions to build a wireless Internet framework at its new international airport terminal in Tokyo. The project is meant to improve passenger services with the creation of a reliable wireless Internet connectivity at the airport.
The construction of the Haneda International Airport has been assigned to Tokyo International Airport Terminal Corporation (TIAT). In order to compete successfully in the global aviation industry, the TIAT believes that it needs to improve passenger services consistently. One of the key factors that leads to improved passenger services is a better Internet connectivity. For this, the TIAT has entrusted HP networking services with the responsibility to build a secured wireless local area network (WLAN) that covers almost all the areas of the airport terminal.
This will not be an easy task for HP as the Haneda Airport is the fifth busiest airport in the world, accommodating more than 60 million passengers a year. HP has to spread the wireless network across an area of 150,000 square meters. HP plans to set MSM Access Points in the terminal for a reliable public wireless Internet service. HP MSM Access Points can provide automated connection to faster network channels on each node. In case of a WLAN access failure, Internet connection can be quickly recovered with an alternate access point. In addition to this, the TIAT will be able to use the access points to create an advanced wireless system that will provide better control over the baggage collection system.
HP wireless local area network can provide an uninterrupted Internet connection to passengers and it will help the airport authorities manage the hustle and bustle of the airport in a much better way.
