Adder Technology High-Performance KVM Solutions for Secure Airport Operations
Adder Technology manufactures high-performance internet protocol (IP) keyboard, video and mouse (KVM) solutions for ergonomic and secure access in transport management applications for the airport industry.
The company has been designing KVM solutions to ensure efficiency, security and reliability in the local and remote management of complex and growing aviation networks for over 35 years.
KVM systems for airport transport management
For over 35 years, Adder Technology has been manufacturing high-performance IP KVM solutions designed to bring ergonomic and secure access benefits to transport management environments across the globe. Installed by some of the world’s leading aviation hubs, Adder’s solutions allow streamlined computer systems to be stored within secure, environmentally controlled server rooms whilst giving the control room operator real-time access to the critical data they require to make mission-critical decisions.
Adder’s range of extend, switch and matrix solutions can support operators across the airport. From the air traffic controllers to terminal facilities management teams, some of the world’s busiest airports are using Adder’s innovations to improve efficiency and collaboration, security, ergonomics and uptime.
Efficient IP KVM systems for air traffic control towers
For air traffic controllers, receiving data and information from a variety of sources, analysing it and making mission-critical decisions must be seamless. Any delay has the potential to negatively affect operations and millions of passengers.
While the amount of data generated in air traffic control environments has increased exponentially, time and collaboration remain critical to the decision-making process. This makes it important to present data accurately and in real-time.
Video walls play a large part in the modern control room by giving staff full visibility of critical data. However, operators continue to rely on desktop displays to interact with control and management systems.
When each console is connected to the KVM network, operators can connect, collaborate and share content with multiple users while still managing individual duties. By using Adder’s Command and Control Switch with FreeFlow Technology, multiple users connected to the same computer can be controlled seamlessly.
With a high-performance IP KVM solution, operator workflows are no longer confined to one control room and can be available from other locations. This allows control room facilities or entire air traffic control towers to be accessible across multiple sites, improving operational flexibility and disaster recovery.
KVM solutions for improved air traffic security
IP KVM is designed to improve security both inside and outside the airport terminal.
By relocating computers and network infrastructure away from the user station and moving them to an access-controlled server room, critical data is protected from internal and external threats. Using IP KVM networks to distribute the data, control room operators can obtain real-time access to the computers and information required for time-critical decisions.
Full redundancy KVM products for airport applications
Reliability is an important feature for systems used in airport applications. Adder’s solutions optimise uptime with full redundancy and synchronised control, as well as offer the option to dual-cable to ensure each data route is fail-safe.
Ergonomic KVM solutions
High-performance IP KVM offers operators the ability to instantly monitor and switch between multiple computers using one keyboard and mouse, which can reduce user station complexity, improve ergonomics, and enhance efficiency and collaboration.
In confined spaces such as air traffic control towers, computers can be moved to an external server room to ensure the working environment is free from excessive heat and noise. This enables operators to focus on tasks with improved concentration and accuracy.
