Athens International Airport Signs Contract with Intracom Telecom for Operational Network Upgrade

Athens, Greece - 14 June 2016 - Intracom Telecom, a global telecommunication systems and solutions vendor, announced today the signing of a contract with Athens International Airport, Eleftherios Venizelos, for replacing the existing Campus Data and Voice Network, Telephony System and related applications with a unified new state-of-the-art infrastructure.

This fully ETSI NFV-compliant virtualized Wi-Fi solution, seamlessly integrates with and virtualizes both indoor and outdoor access points within a fully customizable cloud environment. At the click of a button each hosted operator can deploy virtual network functions (VNFs) from either a pre-configured, out-of-the-box library of VNFs or from any third-party VNF vendor.

The project involves a highly available campus data network infrastructure able to support VoIP, video and data services, a Single Call Control entity with enhanced Unified Communication and Collaboration (UCC) and Mobility services as well as a Contact Center with multitenant functionality.

Due to the criticality of the airport operations and specific operational KPI's that are in place, the project is a very demanding one thus AIA, requires a phased migration approach, providing parallel operation between the current and future voice & data network environment. The project is expected to be implemented within 2 years and maintained for 3 years afterwards.
