Actelis claims big ramp-up for airport IoT networks in seven countries

California-based wide-area IoT network provider Actelis Networks has claimed it has received $312,000 in orders since reporting a major multi-year deal with an unnamed provider of airport operations management systems to “modernise and digitise networks”. Actelis Networks said the contract, announced on a recent earnings update, will upgrade wide-area IoT networks in “hundreds of airports across 39 countries”.

It said it expects further orders – beyond the $312,000-worth of new orders so far from “airports in seven countries across three continents,” including the US, UK, and Japan – as its headline contract progresses into more installations. It stated: “The contract enables rapid deployment of fiber-grade networks extending fiber communication over existing copper infrastructures.

“This will connect remote airport areas, support freight monitoring and modernise airport operation, providing secure, highly reliable communications with built-in redundancy to ensure always-on connectivity for mission critical IoT installations. Modernisation of the networks will provide better real-time monitoring as well as high visibility into airport operation systems, while enabling IoT data sharing across departments.”

Tuvia Barlev, chief executive at Actelis, commented: “We can help customers scale airport IoT networks and digitise airport operations worldwide. Secure, highly resilient IoT networks are essential building blocks as the industry prepares for a wave of new applications designed to streamline operations, while transforming the passenger experience. It is important that such networks are deployed rapidly and cost effectively.”
