4G LTE for airports and air-to-ground
The Nokia 4G LTE for Airports and Air-to-Ground solution consolidates and unifies airport radio systems. Our LTE air-to-ground solution is an aviation-specific LTE variant that supports real-time and ultra-broadband communications in flight. The aviation industry has long relied on satellite-based systems to support onboard communication services. These systems are vital for trans-oceanic flights where air-to-ground communication is not possible.
The advent of LTE air-to-ground service presents a new alternative. LTE air-to-ground services are more affordable than satellite-based systems. They support new onboard applications that benefit passengers and airline companies. And they allow airport operation managers and air-traffic authorities to use an ultra-broadband network for all operational communications inside the airport and on taxiways.
Nokia 4G LTE for airports lets you build a unified ultra-broadband radio network able to support all mission-critical services, such as PMR, video security in the luggage area, and operational communications with emergency vehicles and multimedia communications between ground staff and control towers. When used on taxiway an LTE ground-to-plane solution reduces the transit time by allowing to start downloading data while aircraft is landing. Additionally, an LTE small cell solution deployed inside the airport terminals helps you improving the passenger connectivity in a crowded environment.
