Airport 4.0: How private 5G is a key enabler

Watch Nokia and Brussels Airport webinar on how private 5G is a key enabler to help airports accelerate digital transformation.

Airport digitalisation, also known as Airport 4.0, allows airports to embrace paperless operations, enhance their operational and situational awareness and consequently target a lower cost base to become more competitive. The journey towards paperless operations is a challenging one and requires that many airport stakeholders be aligned. These stakeholders will need to rely on specific airport applications running on their rugged cell phone or tablet during the turnaround. Application enablement can be done by ensuring reliable, secure wireless connectivity everywhere at the airport.

As the journey towards Airport 4.0 continues, the importance of connectivity grows. Connectivity can no longer be treated as a commodity. It is a strategic asset that is as important to an airport as the runway. Pervasive, reliable, secure, broadband wireless connectivity plays a critical role in the Airport 4.0 journey by connecting all the stakeholders, processes and systems.

This session presented:

  • 5G private wireless technology and key airport use cases
  • How private wireless can help airports accelerate digital transformation
  • Experience from an airport deployment.
