Airport Authority Hong Kong Builds Huge WLAN with Cisco

The Airport Authority Hong Kong has deployed Cisco Systems' Unified Wireless Network equipment to create one of the world's largest airport WLANs in terms of coverage and number of access points.

Hong Kong International Airport (HKIA), the world's busiest international cargo and fifth busiest international passenger airport, now provides WLAN coverage in all indoor areas including the passenger terminal and the baggage sortation hall, as well as all aircraft parking bays on the apron. The infrastructure now comprises over 200 Cisco 1000 Series Lightweight Access Points and eight Cisco 4100 Series Wireless LAN Controllers. By the end of this year, there will be 300 Cisco Access Points and 12 Cisco Controllers in operation.
