Helping Ensure Planes Spend Less Time on the Ground

Cisco Borderless Network Helps Athens International Airport Improve Service to Airlines and Passengers.

Athens International Airport (AIA) is the largest airport in Greece and one of the most important aviation hubs in Europe. Like all airports, AIA is always looking to improve safety, security, service, and capacity. The end goal is to grow airline market share, increase passenger numbers, drive commercial revenue, and improve productivity, by providing a cost-effective and efficient service to airlines, developing offerings that meet concessions’ needs and providing a highly satisfying experience for passengers.

Following a competitive tender, AIA selected the Cisco Borderless Network solution, an architectural approach that unifies fixed and wireless access infrastructures within a simplified IT management framework.

The solution comprises Cisco 5500 Series Wireless LAN Controllers, Wireless Control System (WCS), and 55 Cisco Aironet Access Points, a combination of 1520 Series Lightweight Outdoor Access Points and 1242 / 1252 Series Ruggedised Access Points.

In addition, the Cisco Borderless Network Architecture has introduced new wireless capabilities. The airport benefits from Cisco Motion, which provides a spectrumaware, self-healing, and self-optimizing wireless platform that makes it easier to mesh together indoor and outdoor WLANs, while also reducing downtime.

The airport’s Cisco Borderless Network has helped optimize airside operations by enabling greater access to information, resources, and IT services, anytime, anywhere, using any device. Although it is still early days, AIA expects to see quantifiable benefits in the form of productivity gains and more streamlined processes, for example, for disembarking, re-fuelling, catering, cleaning, portable water and waste services, and embarking.
