Salt Lake City International (SLC) has completed a connectivity upgrade with partner Galtronics, a wifi antenna developer. 

The wifi and connectivity upgrade was part of a $5.1bn makeover for the western US airport, which sees more than 25 million passengers pass through each year. Galtronics won a tender process with its “high-capacity panel antennas.” 

SLC is the 6th US airport to work with Galtronics, along with Atlanta Hartsfield-Jackson, John F. Kennedy, La Guardia (New York), Los Angeles International Airport and Phoenix Sky Harbor. 

“Meeting the massive capacity and throughput requirements of an airport is challenging,” said Leighton Carroll, Galtronics President and CEO. 

“Seeing Galtronics selected to improve the wireless capabilities at two marquee global airports speaks to the quality of our products and their proven ability to deliver.”

Along with the full remodelling at SLC, Galtronics also announced its successful installation of its DAS antennas will help improve coverage and capacity at Heathrow Airport, London.  This installation marks the first airport outside of North America to contract Galtronics to upgrade its customer and staff wifi systems.

A company statement explained the contracts were won based on capacity and flexibility.

“At both new airports, Galtronics was chosen based on its ability to meet extensive capacity and throughput needs. The antennas offer high capacity with optimized coverage capabilities for dense traffic indoor environments. Galtronics’ antenna architecture provides flexibility, reduces jumper cables count to cover wireless spectrum, and makes deployment easier while reducing costs,” according to a company spokesperson. 

Galtronics is a subsidiary of Canadian group Baylin Technologies.
