The Frame Group has implemented Cisco’s business video and mobility technology for Melbourne Airport’s expanded International Terminal.
The technology enhancements include a Cisco Digital Media Signage solution over 400 flight information displays (FIDs), and wireless 802.11n technology to allow pilots to transfer flight information to flight control, speeding flight turnarounds. Additionally, 800 Cisco Unified IP phones will now allow staff to remain connected throughout the airport.
The solution has been implemented to be scalable by The Frame Group, and is part of a business relationship the integrator had formed with Melbourne Airport a year ago. While not its largest contract, The Frame Group managing director, Brad Ferguson, said the scalability and long-term relationship the two organisations have formed makes it an important relationship.
“In the areas where we’ve been putting together systems, we’ll be looking at expanding those to give greater access to the systems,” Ferguson said.
“For instance, with the media displays, we’re looking at the ability those have around multitasking, and we’ll be integrating that feature further as it expands more.”
