Gars Telecom carried out an integrated project on providing high-priority Wi-Fi network at the S7 Airlines business lounges in the International Domodedovo Airport.

The carrier implemented a specialized solution “Connectum Wi-Fi” based on Cisco Systems equipment. Each wireless access point supports the latest Wi-Fi 802.11ac, and the technology of High Density Experience (HDX) increases the transmission rate in the areas with high user density and BYOD (Bring Your Own Device) designed on different operating systems.

The premium quality wireless access to the internet with transfer speed up to 1GB/sec is now available for S7 Airlines passengers who stay in the business lounges in the international and domestic terminals of the International Domodedovo Airport (DME).
“Establishing Wi-Fi network at the airport poses certain difficulties because of radio frequencies congestion and high user density since many of passengers own 2 or 3 connected devices,” tells Boris Mazo, Deputy Technical Director Gars Telecom, “To maintain reliable communications, the remote Wi-Fi network segments located in different S7 Airlines lounges were gathered through the partner network infrastructure. The user traffic is aggregated in the central IT node of the airlines company.”

The solution designed by Gars Telecom meets the requirements of the Russian legislation and allows the obligatory user identification, and the equipment user for connecting to the free-of-charge Wi-Fi service (community access points).

As Boris Mazo states, thanks to implemented infrastructure the network resources are protected from unwanted traffic, including the transmission of torrent traffic that often forms the basis for illegal consumption of copywrited content.

“It goes without saying that the quality wireless access to the internet seems to be a logical supplement to the wide range of services provided by S7 Airlines,” notes the airlines’ representative Alexander Lukash, “Nevertheless, we’re striving for new achievements and already planning the further improvements on the existing Wi-Fi infrastructure.”
