The operations service provider Fraport decided to hand over the 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 benefits

  • Highest degree of availability possible up to 100 percent, at least 99.998 percent
  • Transparent costs thanks to a port price model and firewall invoicing based on rules and connections
  • Fast, flexible response times thanks to an on-site T-Systems service team
  • Technological scalability supports airport growth

Reliable data transmission to ensure smooth operation

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.

The solution

  • Set-up and operation of a separate Ethernet VPN that connects all departments and applications
  • Set-up and operation of a complex firewall infrastructure for WAN access
  • 24/7 proactive monitoring
  • Secure access guaranteed by two and three factor identification

Seamless high-performance network

Connectivity is one of the four pillars on which our portfolio rests. A secure IP-based communications network ensures flexibility and offers growth opportunities through dynamic network expandability.
