Keeping Airport Terminals Flying Amid Massive Renovations

Posted by ConvergeOne on May 18, 2021 10:00:00 AM

It’s no mystery that airports will undergo major renovations in the coming years. But those airports must also embrace digital transformations of critical airport infrastructure from legacy networks to state-of-the-art technology that’s future-proof, secure, and reliable.

ConvergeOne has become a key technology provider in several large-scale airport projects, including JFK International Airport (Terminal 4) and LaGuardia Airport Terminal B. ConvergeOne has the comprehensive team, toolkit, and technologies that has made it more than just another vendor. Instead, ConvergeOne has become a proactive, responsive, and trusted advisor throughout a project’s lifecycle and beyond.

Unlike other technology providers, ConvergeOne is not beholden to just one vendor. Rather, the firm is vendor agnostic and can choose among many technologies to ensure customers are running on a reliable and secure network infrastructure.

ConvergeOne is the go-to network technology provider for the $4B redevelopment of Terminal B at LaGuardia Airport managed by LaGuardia Gateway Partners (LGP), which involves tearing down a 50-year-old terminal and building a new 1.3M square-foot terminal—all while keeping up to 31 gates running smoothly. Advanced fiber optics with Passive Optical Technology expands across the entire campus, supporting critical systems, such as building automation, kiosk and check-in counters, baggage handling, digital signage, and all airline connectivity.

New York’s John F. Kennedy International Airport handles nearly 62 million annual passengers and generates more than $51 billion in sales. In particular, the airport’s Terminal 4 is managed by JFK International Air Terminal (JFKIAT), the first privately operated in the United States. Terminal 4 is the largest terminal within the airport, and it requires state-of-the-art voice and data infrastructure and redundant Internet service that is monitored 24/7 every single day of the year.

“As part of our Technology Transformation program, we turned to our long-term partner ConvergeOne to upgrade our voice system to a next-gen telephony platform to improve the resiliency and availability across our data centers, but also to ensure that the solution can scale for future expansion at JFK Terminal 4,” said Stephen Tukavkin, VP IT & Digital, JFKIAT.
