Nokia - alongside solution integrator Beaqon Pte – is deploying the former’s passive optical local area network (POL) solution at Changi Airport, Singapore.
According to Nokia, its optical LAN solution “leverages the tremendous bandwidth capabilities of fiber to cover greater distances than copper LAN networks in a smaller footprint. It offers a flexible, scalable and sustainable way to connect applications, and address growing data demands while reducing capital and operational expenditure.”
The network will leverage the company’s POL Command Centre product to simplify monitoring and operations, necessary due to the airport's continuing expansion of its connectivity via sensors and devices.
Speaking of the roll-out, Nokia head of enterprise for Asia Pacific and Japan, Stuart Hendry, said: “Changi Airport has a clear mission to become the world’s leading digital air hub, transforming its operations efficiently and securely to deliver a seamless travel experience for passengers. This transformation to Airport 4.0 relies on secure and powerful networks that can connect thousands of devices.
“As a leader in PON solutions, we are committed to leveraging fiber technology to offer enterprises a quicker and more cost-effective way to deploy LANs. We will partner closely with Beaqon as it transforms operations at Singapore Changi Airport.”
