The Customer

The client is one of the largest European airports. The need was to have a connectivity solution that would guarantee complete coverage throughout the airport area.

The Challenge

For airports, high efficiency and speed of operation are required to increase passenger volume, meet new safety standard and insure mission critical communication. Serving more than 200000 workers of the Paris Airport’s platform, operated by Hub One, was needing a convergence of all existing technologies, reliable and performant. Thus Athonet proposed a new 4G and 5G platform enabling services for a large number of activities and devices, covering the different business needs of the Airport.


The airport’s private cellular network is designed to meet its demands for wide area coverage, redundancy, and high service levels. The Paris Airport has replaced legacy Tetra and DECT radio networks that were nearing end of life and is complementing their existing Wi-Fi networks operated by Hub One to provide greater capacity, higher-speed mobility, and wide area outdoor coverage.
