Ubiquitous airport connectivity
Intra-airport resilient wireless and wired connectivity with our mesh wireless Tropos and industrial Ethernet AFS product lines
Airport communication used by ground operations and security personnel requires resilient, tough and secure connectivity. Rugged Tropos mesh wireless products are designed for better than 99.999% resiliency with airport security requirements in mind (firewall, AES encryption with US government certification).
The Tropos mesh offering is built on a number of innovative features such as self-organizing and self-optimizing. Robust and high performance intra-airport communication networking benefit from Tropos’ multiple communication paths, frequency channels and bands, dynamic routing, power control and data rate control.
