The Airport Authority Hong Kong (AA) has selected Solace to develop the Internet of Things (IoT) platform for Hong Kong International Airport (HKIA).

HKIA can use real-time data to boost the efficiency of airport operations and improve the passenger experience.

Solace’s event broker technology will enable HKIA to optimise data from IoT devices to support various initiatives.

The initiatives include real-time equipment location tracking and predictive maintenance on assets and buildings for different airport business units.

Solace will also enable the collection, filtration, and flow of real-time information between IoT devices and back-end systems to help the airport effectively manage assets and enhance airport operation efficiency and passenger services.

Solace’s event broker technology also provides critical real-time data flow between the airport’s connected devices and vehicles.

Airport Authority Hong Kong chief information officer Andy Bien said: “A secure, scalable messaging backbone will play a critical role in revolutionising our operations and the overall passenger services, reinforcing our commitment to provide a pleasant and unique airport experience to our passengers as a world-class airport.”

Solace chief technology solutions officer Sumeet Puri said: “Solace is all about driving business value for our customers. We are delighted to support HKIA’s real-time digital transformation goals at a time when customers are increasingly demanding real-time responsiveness and hyper-personalised services.”

Earlier this month, a Balfour Beatty / Gammon Construction joint venture (JV) was awarded a HK$7.2bn (£760m) contract for the delivery of tunnels and associated works at HKIA.

Last month, the airport announced the restart of transit / transfer services from this month in a phased manner.
