A lot of I.T. innovations are being made at Schiphol, alongside all the other changes. Schiphol uses all sorts of IT-based systems to control gas, electricity and cameras, as well as climate and fire prevention, security and check-in counters. These systems are not always visible, but they are very important to maintain smooth operations. Systems Integrator advises Schiphol on how to handle these.
Work behind the scenes
Some systems are there to make everyone’s airport stay pleasant and safe – like climate controls, lighting, fire detectors and sprinklers. There are also many behind-the-scenes systems that make every daily process run smoothly, such as check-in desks and baggage handling. Systems Integrator ensures that all of those separate systems work together in unison. They are an external party who advise us during the construction of the new pier and terminal.
Who they are
The Systems Integrator is an external party that advises schiphol about how all active operational systems should be deployed.
What they do
There are many systems in use at the airport. We distinguish between:
- Building-based systems
- Operational and information systems
The building-based systems aim to:
- Focus on the building, such as climate controls and lighting
- Keep the building safe and secure, such as monitoring fire safety.
The operational systems are physically located in their respective places and must ensure that the daily processes at the airport are smooth. For example:
- Check-in desks
- Baggage drop-off points
It is the duty of the system integrator to deliver the systems.
Where they work
All of Schiphol is involved with the systems.
When it will happen
The system integrator is an external party that advises Schiphol during the construction of the new pier and terminal, and will do so until completion. The pier will be in use at the end of 2019, and the terminal in 2023.
