Fujitsu to work on Gatwick’s cloud-based communication infrastructure

Posted on 23. Oct, 2013 by in News

London Gatwick Airport declared that Fujitsu will work with Xchanging and Cisco on its new cloud-based communication infrastructure.

Gatwick Airport will be taking on the technology, which will involve demonstrating 70 ‘cloud’ based baggage drop kiosks over the next year.

Fujitsu will partner with Xchanging, current telephony service provider, as well as with Cisco in providing teamwork services as part of a five-year contract.

It will consist of voice, video, instant messaging and presence to 1,100 of Gatwick’s staff initially, before services will be extended to all 2,500 end users and the airport’s commercial customers.

Michael Ibbitson, chief supporting officer, said: “This is a crucial investment for Gatwick, as we focus heavily on making Gatwick the airport of choice, not only in London, but in Europe.”

The roll out started last month and is based on Fujitsu’s Cloud Connect Collaborate solution (CCC).
