Changi Airport to install optical LAN for CCTV ops

Singapore’s Changi Airport will be installing Nokia Optical LAN to better support existing CCTV operations and enable new services as part of its digital transformation.

Nokia Optical LAN leverages the fibre bandwidth capabilities to cover greater distances than copper LAN networks in a smaller footprint. It provides a flexible, scalable and sustainable way to connect applications, and address growing data demands while reducing capital and operational expenditure.

The network will use the Nokia PCC to simplify network monitoring and operations even as Changi Airport expands connectivity to thousands more sensors and devices as it introduces new digital capabilities. The network will use geo-redundancy to ensure data is secure and always available.

The solution will be deployed by Nokia partner Beaqon. According to Jimmy Leow, Managing Director of TJ Systems, a subsidiary of Beaqon, using Nokia Optical LAN, his company can deploy a highly cost-effective solution that will deliver greater reach than copper LAN technology, while ensuring data security as Changi Airport expands capabilities.

“This transformation to Airport 4.0 relies on secure and powerful networks that can connect thousands of devices. As a leader in Passive Optical Network solutions, we are committed to leveraging fiber technology to offer enterprises a quicker and more cost-effective way to deploy LANs,” said Stuart Hendry, Head of Enterprise for Asia Pacific and Japan at Nokia.
