Cost-efficient solution for airfield infrastructure optimization

Is your airport infrastructure ready for international demand recovery?
To achieve maximum efficiency and profitability during the current economic crisis, major international airports are looking for a cost-effective way to optimize their operational areas.
Technological modernization of airport infrastructure might reduce the impact of the crisis and become key in maintaining a high level of service quality.

Centralized management of separate airport networks such as ticketing kiosks, printing points, security cameras, traffic controllers, etc. would allow anticipating changing service needs and significantly reducing maintenance costs.
IT and communications
With the aim of helping airports transform their IT and communications infrastructure more efficiently, Eltima has developed a dedicated port virtualization technology working over any distance and across all major operating systems.

Our remote access technology is designed to facilitate asset management and increase the operational capacity of airports facing the new realities of a pandemic economy.

The challenge

Recently we have been contacted by the technical manager of one of the largest airports in Europe with the following issue:

The boarding pass printers used at our client’s airport are equipped with USB ports for easy connection to airport computers. However, the software running on the check-in officers’ PCs is designed to support COM port equipment only. Replacing the legacy application is considered to be problematic as the cost of redesigning the specialized software is rather high. With that, the cost of maintaining the system with additional USB to COM converters might eventually outweigh the cost of replacing both the printing software and hardware.

The solution

Eltima has created a custom solution for a boarding pass printing station where one USB printer connects to a print server and becomes available for remote access from 20 check-in desks at a time. Check-in officers simply connect to the print server over RDP and send a boarding pass to the print queue.

Thanks to the port virtualization technology integrated into the printing system, all the USB printers available at the airport can now be controlled from the legacy serial software without any additional hardware, cabling, or USB to COM adapters.

The custom Port Virtualization solution allows the airport to get the best savings by eliminating the need to redesign the expensive software, update it, and retrain the staff. It enables the airport to reduce wait-times for the passengers and provides a competitive advantage over other airports in the region.
