Transforming IT Infrastructure to Offer Best-in-Class Airport Services: A Look into Fraport AG

 As airlines, retail customers and passengers all require high-quality, uninterrupted services – major international airports place high demands on network infrastructure and solutions for its around-the-clock operations. Fraport AG, operator of Frankfurt Airport, is a leader in the global airport business offering a full range of integrated airport management services.

To gain full transparency into their complex cable networks, Fraport needed a comprehensive, high-performance infrastructure management solution.

Fraport implemented FNT Command to gain complete visibility into every network asset and effectively manage Frankfurt Airport’s IT, cable network and telecommunications infrastructure.
To ensure high availability, Fraport operates the data center information management solution on redundant systems for approximately 200 internal and external users.

Since Fraport redundantly interfaced all critical systems and routing connections via different cable trays, their network of 26,000 LAN connections has successfully achieved availability of 99.999 percent. Additionally, Fraport benefits from more efficient debugging as the airport houses numerous walkable cable ducts.
