Mobile networking technology to manage passenger traffic and streamline the boarding process
Jean Lesage International Airport in Quebec City of Canada has completed the modernisation of its airport terminal using services from Cisco and HP.
The airport’s deployment integrates Cisco network infrastructure and Cisco mobility and unified communications services to improve travellers’ experiences. HP served as the end-to-end systems integrator for these services and will provide ongoing support for the network infrastructure.
The new network infrastructure is claimed to help support the airport’s vision for a modern, agile facility at a time when increasing air traffic is flying into and out of Quebec City. The airport is implementing a passenger first strategy to help airlines streamline operations, such as baggage and personal check-in.
Updating passenger service at the counter, using mobile networking technology from Cisco and implementation services from HP, Aeroport de Quebec transformed the airline counters into flexible, common-use stations that multiple airlines can use to manage passenger traffic and streamline the boarding process.
Aeroport de Quebec deployed a unified wired and wireless Cisco network infrastructure along with Cisco unified communications manager, all of which allows airline personnel to log in to their telephony profiles on Cisco unified wireless IP phones and remain connected throughout the airport.
Pascal Belanger, president and COO of Aeroport de Quebec, said: In working with Cisco and HP, we were able to provide our airlines with the unified communications and mobility benefits of Cisco’s unified wireless network so that we can continue to streamline our operations and improve the experience of travelers visiting our airport.
