Advanced infrastructure and system integration
Sunrise is the principal provider for Flughafen Zürich AG and has set up the entire mobile infrastructure. Mobile phone services, as well as landline access for voice and data services, are continuously optimized and adapted to actual conditions. This is true not only in the public area for passengers and retail and hospitality customers and visitors, but also in the private area for authorized airport employees. Sunrise also assists with system integration.
Sunrise also handles site connectivity. Sunrise provides broadband Internet trunks at Zurich Airport with a guaranteed data transfer rate of 5 GB/s. With this infrastructure, Flughafen Zürich AG can offer its customers and tenants a local connectivity that lets them connect to their branches in other locations, such as the airports in Basel or Geneva.
Availability and reliability
Along with seamless coverage, absolute availability of the landline and Internet networks is essential at Flughafen Zürich AG. Employees must be accessible everywhere, even below ground. This also applies in the event of a system outage. To ensure continued Internet, landline and mobile network operation despite a system outage, all lines are incorporated in a high redundancy network. The airport police, security & rescue and emergency services also use the Sunrise infrastructure to supplement their primary communications resources, such as trunked radio and Polycom, and for external communications.
SMS services and 0800 numbers
All SMS services are provided by SMS Link from Sunrise, for everything from WLAN access authentication for passengers and visitors to information about empty parking places for employees on the site, and more. Sunrise also set up the 0800 numbers – in case of an incident with an aircraft or at Zurich Airport an emergency number will be activated immediately.
