Insufficient wireless signals in buildings and underground has reportedly limited the application of sensors in various fields across the airport, making it challenging to replace analogue and manual readings of electricity, water or gas meters. An important requirement for the current ongoing digital development of the airport is that the IT department and technology department need to join efforts if the physical world on premises was to be connected to the Internet and become part of the IoT.

This solution enables the airport IT department to quickly access meter data for rapid analysis. The trial-based introduction of NB-IoT in conjunction with IoT provider Q-loud potentially opens up completely new fields for the application of sensors at the airport, helping to accelerate its digital transformation.
