To achieve the various objectives of an airport, from a technical point of view, the
following facilities are necessary:
An efficient and common communications/IT infrastructure with different
media (fixed cabling, trunk radio, CCTV, Wireless-LAN)
A homogeneous and campus wide comprehensive, end-to-end network with
diverse WAN-Links (examples for external networks: Internet, Videotext, SITA, Airlines, etc.)
IT-supported workflow processes to create an extensive logistic system plus
communications middleware to connect systems with different platforms
IT-applications and processes which use state-of-the-art
technology e. g. client/server architecture
But the main skill is the INTEGRATION of all systems and facilities.
There are not many airports in the world, having such a totally integrated system.
And there are not many people having the experience to develop such a system in a leading position.
