ZPE Solutions Address the Critical IT and Security Needs of the Airline Industry.
Whether it’s a large international airport, small local airport, or communication center, uptime and security for the industry are of the utmost importance.
Downtime for any business equates to money lost, this remains true even more so for the airline industry. In an industry where mere seconds of downtime can equate to lost revenue, damage to reputation, and missed SLAs – Uptime is of the utmost importance. Can you afford a network failure?
Airlines require an infrastructure management solution that’s bulletproof. Their networks need to have secure remote access to all devices and the ability to troubleshoot them quickly and easily no matter if they’re at the core or edge of the network – It’s impossible to have IT staff on-site everywhere. Airline IT networks need connectivity fail-over in the form of 4G/LTE to maintain uptime and troubleshoot issues remotely in case issues arise. They need IPv6 and IPv4 firewalls in place to keep the edge of the network safe and secure. Environmental monitoring and the ability to set custom alerts in order to proactively protect themselves against any issues are all needs Airline companies have. Like in all industries, network ports come at a premium – The ability to cascade devices to save some valuable ports becomes a necessity. Not only that, but scalability and network speed also need to be considered by the industry as well.
The Airline industry requires a solution to be deployed in all of the remote locations, granting authorized users full access, control, logging and monitoring of the physical and virtual devices. Being there without having to be there allows admins to spot issues before they happen and automate/take the right actions to prevent them.
What the Airline industry needs is ZPE System’s Nodegrid Family of IT infrastructure products.
