Airlines and operators today enjoy the enhanced benefits of network connectivity, reaping rewards such as increased operational efficiency, situational awareness and passenger satisfaction as processing and data transfer continues to streamline passenger processing.
However, there are still concerns in the industry over security measures, with risks increasing in terms of infiltration, or hacking, of critical airport systems infrastructure.
To ensure comprehensive security across an entire infrastructure, these challenges can be addressed with implementation of reliable network services, such as the use of a Wide Area Network (WAN). Rockwell Collins’ ARINC AviNet WAN, for example, gives airlines and operators secure access to a system that has been in operation for more than 50 years, operating seamlessly with airport systems such as the proven vMUSE platform.
vMUSE is a well-known platform, handling applications for back-office, baggage handling, passenger processing and aircraft communications.
Dealing with aviation network security challenges is an important part of airport operations to ensure aircraft and passenger safety across the globe.
