At Dubai Airport Show 2017, Huawei showcased its full suite of airport-oriented ICT capabilities including visualised airport operation solution, panoramic video surveillance solution and aviation cloud.
To support airports in their efforts to offer a better passenger experience, Huawei and T-Systems jointly developed the Cloud Flight Information Display System and the indoor positioning Dynamic Milestone system for smart travel. These advanced solutions provide value-added services to the passengers. Huawei and YITU showcase a facial recognition system for enhanced airport security. Huawei’s intelligent video surveillance cameras, video cloud storage platform and aviation cloud, along with SenseTime’s facial recognition system, speed up boarding time by checking biometric tokens rather than boarding passes.
In the airport smart operations area, Huawei’s eLTE wireless communication technologies enable long-distance network coverage and unified access to broadband and narrowband networks. Collaborating with the visualised command and dispatch system by TravelSky-Civil Aviation Cares of Qingdao, the solution ensures efficient utilisation of airport resources and improves airports’ operations efficiency.
Xilin Yuan, President of the Transportation Sector of Huawei’s Enterprise Business Group, said: “New ICT technologies are bringing about revolutionary changes, such as digital collaboration, cloud computing platforms, and Big Data analytics, to the aviation industry. Digitalisation can dramatically optimise passengers’ travel experience, increase airports’ operational efficiency, and ensure public safety and operational security at airports. Huawei is cooperating with its partners to provide innovative, differentiated, and advanced ICT hardware and software infrastructure for aviation customers, enabling them to embrace the benefits of digital technologies, and remain competitive and thrive in the digital era.”
