Heathrow has completed a £34 million network infrastructure overhaul that will support key systems to reduce queuing time.
Heathrow said that passengers can expect to see queuing time for check-in, baggage and security fall thanks to the 40 kms of fibre and copper cabling, as the new technology allows passengers to check-in at any desk, instead of a desk designated to a specific airline.
The network is part of a £2.5 billion transformation project at the terminal. Fujitsu installed a LAN, WLAN, Voice, IPTV and Command and Control system. It fitted out 130 communication rooms, using 420 Cisco switches.
