We help you connect your airport systems and subsystems with technology that works and supports your passengers, your employees, and your services.

Airport solutions need to address security, and the Internet of Things (IoT) to deliver a connected passenger experience.

Operators are acknowledging the essential role of networks and communications to optimally manage their infrastructure as airport systems evolve to meet the needs of a world on the move.

Public safety and potential cyber-attacks on the airport network infrastructure are primary concerns. With many separate networks such as ticketing kiosks and security cameras that are increasingly connected via an Ethernet network, outside threats are a reality.

ALE airport solutions:

  • Connect customers for the best airport experience
  • Connect your people and processes securely for speed, comfort and safety
  • Connect airport infrastructure to enhance communications, security and efficiency

Powering safer, more secure airport systems

  • Increase safety: ALE offers comprehensive layered security based on a hardened operating system that supports network security and application analytics. Devices and users are protected from cyber attacks and data breaches.
  • Reduce security risks: Airport operators are vulnerable to cyber attacks capable of controlling operations and stealing technical, passenger and financial data. The risk of spreading security threats to other segments in the network increases as technology advances to enable the connection of subsystems. The right network infrastructure solution minimizes the risks with layered security that starts with a hardened operating system at the switch level. In addition, IoT containment combined with virtualization and QoS provide optimal operations for IoT systems.
  • The connected passenger: Technologies, such as Bluetooth Low Energy (BLE) and Wi-Fi onboard and at airport gates and concourses make travel more enjoyable by providing up-to-date travel information, entertainment, social connection and more.
