Fraport AG: T-Systems operates high performance network for Frankfurt Airport

When it comes to communications technology, Frankfurt Airport is more than ready for the scheduled expansion. A high performance network managed by T-Systems guarantees flexibility.
Whether it's flight security, cargo logistics, airline front desks or security cameras: The Frankfurt Airport depends on highly secure, reliable data transmission to make sure things runs smoothly. That's why the operations service provider Fraport decided to hand over management of the existing network to T-Systems within the scope of a total outsourcing agreement. The Telekom subsidiary also set up a state-of-the-art, secure, IP-based communications network for all airport departments and companies that work on the grounds.
The network is a secure Ethernet virtual private network (VPN) set up as a local area network (LAN) with separate transmission paths for data, voice and images. While two and three factor identification guarantees secure access, a firewall infrastructure protects against attacks. High network availability can reach up to 100 percent and is guaranteed to be at least 99.998 percent. An on-site T-Systems service team, which is available 24/7, provides active monitoring. Operating costs are low and transparent thanks to a port price model and firewall invoicing based on rules and connections. Flexible network expansion supports airport growth.
