Advantech Digital Signage Solutions Enhance China’s Flight Information Display Systems
In 2016, there were altogether 218 civil airports in China. The Chinese civil aviation industry registered a total cargo & mail traffic volume of 15.1 million ton/kilometers, carrying 1.01 trillion passengers, occupying the 2nd place in the world. To meet growing demand, China continues to expand the number of airports, posing enormous challenges to the air traffic management system. To ensure smooth operations with high passenger and freight volume, China accelerates the implementation of its Strategy for Modernizing Air Traffic Management.
Therefore, a Flight Information Display(FIDS) plays an important role in assisting air passengers during boarding. FIDS deployed near important entrances, check-in counters, and boarding gates provides real-time information on flights, weather reports, transportation, airport services and more, keeping passengers well informed with up-to-date travel information. During the last two years, China’s main international airports such as Guangzhou Baiyun International Airport (the 3rd busiest airport in China), Shanghai Pudong International Airport(the 2nd busiest airport in China), Zhengzhou Xinzheng International Airport(the 15th busiest airport in China), gradually upgraded its FIDS, starting enjoying the benefits of Advantech digital signage solutions.
High Performance Signage Player Meets High Standards
Advantech provides high stability and high performance digital signage solutions for FIDS
Built-in Management Software Brings Easy Maintenance
- Our digital signage solutions integrate WISE-PaaS/RMM, a remote device management platform. Users can manage multiple devices, with immediate detection of malfunctions. Many problems can be solved using remote KVM, without engineers being sent on site. This greatly reduces repair times because both problems and solutions are identified at an early stage. For FIDS applications, one big challenge for open information distribution systems is unauthorized content and message delivery. For this, Advantech digital signage solutions integrate McAfee’s white list protection solution to prevent unauthorized content from entering the system.
- Advantech first ventured into China’s FIDS market in 2006, and has experienced substantial growth through subsequent years. As a result of years of diligent effort, many local hub airports have already installed Advantech’s digital signage platforms. Although statistics show that Advantech dominates 88% of China’s FIDS business, the company continues to move forward aggressively. Now Advantech is expecting to increase FIDS efficiency and customer satisfaction through ongoing system upgrades. Advantech always made products that cater to our customers’ needs.
