2018-05-16

Background

This Airport is the most important and largest international airport in China. With the most advanced equipment, and the largest transport volumes, it provides an important window on China’s air travel, and presents China to the rest of the world.

The Airport’s Terminal 3 (T3) building is the world's largest single terminal building, with an area of 980,000 square meters, and throughput of 89.94 million passengers in 2015, ranking first in Asia and second worldwide. At peak rates, 1900 flights take off and land daily – its operations and security cannot tolerate even a moment’s interruption.

New H3C Plans and Sets up the Airport’s Network

The T3 Terminal was formally put into operation in February 2008. It’s integrated New-H3C-constructed 10G network platform bears responsibility for delivery of almost all of its of key real-time operational and management services, including ground emergency command, airport terminal broadcasting, flight information display, passenger departure control, video surveillance over a 2700 camera video surveillance and office networking. T3 employs over 1,000 new H3C devices, including SR8800 core routers, S9500 high-end switches, and WLAN. Its eight physical networks include a backbone network, a production scheduling service network, a security network, an office network and commercial networks. During T3’s construction, New H3C provided resident expert design, implementation, operation and maintenance services, gaining the customer’s acclaim.

Why New H3C?

T3’s large campus network is based on a 10-Gigabit Ethernet backbone, with key nodes adopting a dual-device/dual-link design to ensure service reliability and support high availability of technologies such as multicast, broadcast, and OSPF GR. New H3C has assisted in T3’s comprehensive digitalization of operations and management, helped the airport become a world-leading “International Airport”, thanks to its high-performance, high-reliability information platform.

● New H3C’s core, aggregation, and access switches all support wire speed forwarding to ensure high network performance;

● Virtual campus network technology provides efficient logical isolation: core and aggregation switches support MPLS, VPNs and MCEs to facilitate logical isolation of different service systems;

● New H3C’s solution guarantees high availability. Device stability and link/device/master/wireless controller switchover do not affect services.

Creating value for customers

In order to handle the T3 transformation, New H3C established a major project at company-level, guaranteeing highest priority access to after-sales experts, staffing, equipment supply and factory inspection. Since it was put into operation in February 2008, the T3 network has been ‘tested’ many times by traffic flows related to the Olympic Games, National Day and Spring Festival holidays. The network has withstood each test without difficulty, delivering over ten years of stable operation.

New H3C's many years of civil aviation industry digitalization, implementation and service experience, and localized R&D support, have received the full recognition of this customer – China’s largest Airport.
